Thermoplast

Schließen

Thermoplastics are plastics that can be shaped in a certain temperature range. By cooling and reheating up to a molten liquid state this process can be repeated over and over again as long as there is no thermal decomposition ("burning") of the material caused by overheating. An important unique feature for industrial application is the possibility of welding thermoplastics.
In the past thermoplastics were mostly processed using injection moulding, however extrusion is a common process in the handling of thermoplastics today. Mechanical processes like sawing or milling are utilized as well.
The most common thermoplastics are PVC, PET and Celluloid.

Elastomere are rigid but elastically shapeable plastics. By applying force (pressure load, tensile load), they can be shaped but they return to their original form after releasing it. Elastomers are used for tires, rubber bands, sealing rings, cooling hoses, cable insolations and many more applications that need formability. If drinking water is exposed to elastomers (e.g. sealing rings), these plastics have to be cercified according to KTW-Recommendations (Plastics-Drinking Water regulations) to exclude any health damages and guarantee safety for human consumption and environment.

moulding

Overmoudling is a plastic injection moulding process in which a material (usually a thermoplastic) is applied to a second material (usually a hard plastic). The thermoplastic layer forms a strong bond with the hard plastic layer without any welding or glueing. Overmoulding is used to improve features like grip in wet environments, vibration suppression or water resistence.

Process

3K Process is the process of attaching up to 3 different plastic materials to each other by using injection moulding. In the simplest case the only material difference is the color (e.g. for certain design) but it is also possible to combine materials with diverging material properties. By using the 3K-process expensive assembly steps can be skipped, rendering an economically efficient production of large amounts possible.

Finishing

Schließen

Surface Finishing is the improvement of surface properties.
Plastics can be treated to gain or improve dirt-repellent, antistatic, scratch-proof, metallising, chemical-proof or insolating properties.
