    Integral Foam Structure Increases Strength

    Investigations indicate that the mechanical properties of foamed moulded parts are determined largely by the compactness and thickness of the skin zone. Fine-celled foamed parts with a compact skin zone thus exhibit better mechanical characteristics than homogeneous microcellular foamed products.   more

    Special Coating Assures Better Viewing

    Scratches on plastic displays make them more difficult to read. Reflections from the surface also disturb viewing. Using the so-called PICVD technique, special multi-layer coatings can be applied to plastic surfaces. The pulsed plasma produces scratch-resistant, low-reflecting surfaces in a single step.   more

    Melt Filtration at Constant Pressure

    Filter elements can be cleaned very effectively and with little pressure variation in a newly developed piston-type screen changer. The time during which the backflushed material is removed is relatively long. As a result, the pressure variations in the process are kept within a very narrow range.   more

    Perfect PUR Mixing

    Mixing heads with proportional valve technology automatically match the metering gap at the outlet from the mixing chamber to varying flow rates during production. This contributes to improved quality and reproducibility when manufacturing flexible PUR foam products with different hardness zones.   more
