As with metal alloys, these properties can be supplemented and extended by certain additives. Thermoplastics such as PE or PP, for example, can be significantly mechanically reinforced by adding fillers. Compared to metallic materials, plastics offer the advantage that they are easy to shape, have a low specific weight, can be coloured as desired and are highly resistant to chemicals.
Plastic profiles have a lower strength than metal profiles and a significantly lower heat resistance. For this reason, a precise knowledge of the operating conditions and the desired functions is required in order to be able to select the appropriate material for each profile.
Our plastic profiles are used in the construction industry, in vehicle construction, in various mechanical engineering applications, in plant construction, in the electrical industry, in agricultural engineering and in the wind energy sector, among others. We would be pleased to advise you on the selection of the material and on the functional and plastic design of the profile for your application.
