Whether diggers, cranes or wheeled loaders, construction machinery must be able to withstand the tough working conditions on building sites despite heavy loads and long periods in use. That is the only way tight schedules in building projects can be met. Every manufacturer is thus faced with the challenge of improving the efficiency and reliability of its construction machinery. We help you to achieve this target by offering particularly wear and abrasion-resistant plastics that allow you to develop reliable and long-lasting construction machinery.
- High mechanical stability prolongs the life of your construction machinery
- Excellent reliability
- Low maintenance
- High level of safety thanks to flame retardancy
- Resistant to lubricants
- Wheeled loaders
Sliding elements made of SUSTAMID 6G (PA 6G) ensure the smooth extension of telescopic crane jibs. SUSTAMID 6G offers high strength and rigidity and supports the extension thanks to its outstanding slide properties. More information about SUSTAMID 6G
For areas in which the use of flame-retardant materials is appropriate or even prescribed, we recommend Matrox® SE. The material combines good slide properties and high resistance to wear with a flame-retardant classification in fire class UL94 V0. That makes Matrox® SE ideal for the lining of digger shovels in mining (image), for instance. More information about Matrox®
The performance and service life of materials for construction machinery is influenced by many factors. These criteria need to be considered in order to make the right choice. Examples:
- Mechanical loading
- Thermal loading
- External influences such as UV radiation and weathering
- Contact with lubricants
- Design requirements, dimensions and tolerances
