Plastic | The alternative material plastic

Construction site

This is a construction site. We are optimizing for you!

Even if Plastic has a rather bad reputation today, so rejoice plastics increasing popularity in industry. Plastics are light, low-maintenance, durable, environmentally friendly and inexpensive. In addition, plastics offer further positive properties compared to other materials, which can also be explicitly generated in their composition. They can be made particularly break-proof, elastic or temperature-resistant. Parts made of plastic are manufactured using the plastic injection molding process.

The Plastics industry is booming and is developing more and more new compositions such as polymers, elastomers, thermosets, thermoplastics, polystyrene and many others - you too can extend the life of your new development with products made of plastic.

epoxy resin

Epoxy resin | Adhesive for constructive bonding & casting

Epoxy resin adhesive, also known as epoxy glue, is used as construction adhesive used, which is particularly strong and resistant even at high temperatures. The connections of the 1K or 2K adhesives are vibration-resistant, vibration-resistant and impact-resistant. the constructor is very flexible with an epoxy resin adhesive and can also be different Materials glue together.

Thermoplastic polyimide for high temperature applications

The thermoplastic Polyimide Aurum is a highly heat-resistant super-engineering Plastic with high production efficiency in injection molding. The thermal plastic challenges the conventional wisdom that polyimide performs very well but is difficult to process. As a distributor for PI Meldin from Saint-Gobain, Bieglo presents the PI portfolio, which is also suitable for the 3D pressure suitable.

epoxy resin

Special formula for an epoxy resin adhesive

A special formula for an epoxy resin was developed at the Vienna University of Technology. It can be used for fiber-reinforced composites in aircraft, car or ship construction and is even suitable for underwater renovations. The new material can change completely within seconds.

Plastics development: bio-based, circular, more sustainable

The Fraunhofer Institute for Environmental, Safety and Energy Technology “Umsicht” is developing new materials for the resource-efficient use of plastics. The focus is on bioplastics, a circular plastics economy and strategies to reduce macro- and microplastics in the environment.
carbon fibers

Materials with carbon fibers from algae and negative CO2 balance

In combination with domestic granite or other hard stones, carbon fibers enable completely new construction materials and building materials. Theoretical calculations show that if the carbon fibers are made from algae oil, the production of innovative materials removes more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere than is released. A research project led by the Technical University of Munich (TUM) is now to advance these technologies.
