CHARACTERISTICS

PP - Polypropylene Polypropylene has a low specific weight and high chemical resistance and tensile strength. It is more rigid than polyethylene and thanks to its characteristics, it is used to manufacture mechanical parts where high tensile strength and corrosion resistance are required. Its resistance to acids makes polypropylene ideal for use in chemical industry. It is adapted for food-grade use in the natural colour, whereas in black it is often used for the manufacturing of worm screws. PE 500 Polyethylene 500 Polyethylene 500,000 molecules is certified for use in contact with food, it has low specific weight and a particularly low friction coefficient. These features, together with good impact strength and competitive prices, have led to its extensive use in the food and drink industry, to manufacture conveyors, guides, starts, etc.

PE 1000 - Polyzene Polyzene 1000 or polyethylene 1,000,000 molecules combines the characteristics of PE 500 (food-grade, low friction coefficient and low specific weight) with a 1000 particular impact strength. It is suitable for use in humid environments or those in contact with water because it is hygroscopic. It is used to manufacture worm screws and mechanical parts, when good smoothness and impact strength are required. Furthermore, it is particularly suitable for worm screws and conveyors for glass bottles, glasses and jars. PVC Polyvinylchloride The use of PVC has been reduced for environmental reasons and has been replaced by other polymers. It has a good hardness and rigidity. It has an excellent chemical resistance (acids, alkalis, etc.) and for this reason it is often used to manufacture parts for highly corrosive environments. Acetal resin (polyoxymethylene, POM) C is a copolymer obtained from the polymerisation of formaldehyde. POM is characterised by an excellent hardness and rigidity. Its excellent resistance to oils and solvents, its dimensional stability, its low friction coefficient and excellent abrasion resistance, add to the positive features of this material. It is used to manufacture worms screws and mechanical parts when high quality surfaces, high impact strength and compression resistance, as well as dimensional stability are required. The main characteristics of Arnite are its low friction coefficient, its excellent dimensional stability and compression resistance. It is an extremely hard material, approved and thoroughly used in the food industry. It is often used to manufacture bushings, guides, cams, slides and any other mechanical part for which high precision (narrow tolerances), hardness and stability are required.

PA6G - Cast Nylon PA6G is a cast and polymerised polyamide. It is a very hard material and it is more crystalline than standard nylon. It has great wear and compression 6 resistance, as well as high tensile strength. Furthermore, it is a self-lubricating material and, in certain applications, no additional lubricant is required. It is particularly suitable to manufacture notched wheels and gears, but it is also ideal for guides, supports and worm screws, for which high resistance to wear is required. It is hygroscopic like standard nylon, which makes it unsuitable for the contact with water. It is not normally used in contact with food. PA6G+MOS - Cast PA6G is added with a specific percentage of MOS (molybdenum disulphide). This means that this material has both the characteristics of polymerised cast nylon, Nylon+MOS described above, and improved smoothness and reduced humidity absorption capacity. It is used for the same purposes as PA6G and it enables us to manufacture particularly hard worm screws with increased smoothness.
