WE ARE YOUR EXPERT PARTNER
IN PLANT CONSTRUCTION
AND ENGINEERING.
COLLECTIVE EXPERTISE
FOR YOUR PROJECT.

 

The focus in plant construction and engineering is on individual components – even for the shortest production runs with high reliability standards. We will be happy to support you with the right choice of material, appropriate design and replacement part procurement via our reverse engineering service. The solution for this are complex design parts and entire assemblies, which benefit from all of our experience in plastics. And everything is coordinated for your requirements and applications. Below we provide you with tips and information on what you must bear in mind when choosing the right plastic for plant construction and engineering.

COMPARISON of Charpy impact resistancE

Plastics are subjected to high loads in plant construction and engineering. On one hand, they need a good coefficient of sliding friction. For these applications, we recommend the technical plastics POM-PE, POM-PTFE and PE-UHMW. On the other hand, plastics need to resist considerable impacts. See the diagram below for a selection of our plastics with high impact resistance. Some of our plastics even do not rupture under high loads. They include PA, PVDF, PC and the polyolefins PE and PP.

Find a plastic using the user database

Besides the charpy impact strength, other properties of a plastic are highly important for plant construction and engineering. You can filter them based on the properties required in our user database.

    Approvals and properties

    In plant construction and engineering, plastics must meet a range of requirements and guideline values. You can download the most important mechanical properties of our plastics conveniently here as a PDF file. We also provide you with an overview of the food-safety approval per BfR and the EU regulations. Our CENTRODAL W / POM W is approved for drinking water and can be used without hesitation for drinking water applications.
