Background

MINING INDUSTRY

The most extreme conditions prevail in opencast mining - here it is important to be resistant and robust. High mechanical loads from heavy transport goods, abrasive bulk goods and dirt put the reliability of components to the test every day. Thanks to their high mechanical strength and dirt resistance, our plastics ensure smooth operation even under extreme conditions. The elasticity and breaking strength of our plastics ensure that components do not break and surrounding mechanical elements are damaged when overloaded. The corrosion-resistant plastics also ensure that premature material fatigue due to rust, for example, is excluded.
