Plastics for efficient and dependable Galvanic plants
An investment in new galvanic plants always poses a challenge for companies. On the one hand, the plants are to go into operation in a timely manner and on the other hand, they are to be efficient and dependable on a sustained basis. Plant manufacturer have to consider many factors: Which electroplating technology and which operating temperatures and chemical media are to be used and which construction materials allow for the highest process stability and operational reliability. Finally, the following applies: Even with aggressive chemicals, high operating temperatures and long-lifetime, the plant has to be efficient and safe to operate. We offer plastics specifically developed for such requirements. They are suitable for contact with many different chemical media, different usage temperatures and are easy to process. They will help you in construction of reliable and process-safe plants. We will gladly advise you in selecting the right materials for your application.
High process safety
Suitable for high permanent usage temperatures
High resilience against the media used in the process
Typical areas of application
Galvanic systems for treatment of metal parts, car raw shell and plastic parts
Copper coating systems
Made of Polystone® P Homopolymer grey (PP-H), the process tanks for the galvanic system for treatment of aluminium parts will resist the high usage temperatures and chemicals used.
At a density of 0.65 g/cm³, Foamlite® P is much lighter in weight than any sheet of compact PP (0.915 g/cm³). With its chemical resilience and mechanical stability, the light-weight construction material is specifically customised for use in the chemical tank and plant construction. Foamlite® with its lower weight has constructional cost benefits there - e.g. as mobile covering hood (figure).
Polystone® Safe-Tec C is a multi-layered and grained plate specifically developed for floors and stepping areas in chemical tank and plant construction. It is characterised by a slip-inhibiting surface (DIN 51097 class A) and very high chemicals resilience.
Polystone® P flex combines very good elasticity with good chemicals resilience and can at the same time be welded to PP. Thus, thermal and mechanical expansions can be compensated for in a targeted manner during construction already - e.g. spaces in process tanks in galvanic or steel staining systems.
Polystone® P CubX®
Polystone® P CubX® is a tank construction sheet featuring a unique inner cube structure developed for rectangular tanks. The innovative design combines light weight and ease of handling with very high longitudinal and transverse rigidity. Depending on the size of the tank, steel reinforcements can be completely or significantly reduced. The time savings in tank construction is enormous.
