Plastics for harvesting technology

To cultivate their fields efficiently, farmers need powerful and reliable agricultural machinery. Farmers must be able to rely on their machines at all times, especially during the peak harvesting season. As agricultural machinery becomes larger and heavier, the risk of soil compaction also increases. For this reason, lightweight and high-performance components for the design of modern agricultural machinery are in demand. We supply you with plastics that have been specially developed for these requirements. Our plastics for harvesting technology combine very high load-bearing capacity with high wearing resistance and low weight. Renowned agricultural machinery manufacturers all over the world rely on our materials.

Your advantages
