Extreme temperatures, heavy loads and numerous hours of operation. Machines and systems in alpine areas have to withstand a lot. Growing maintenance machines such as snow groomers but also (personal) means of transport such as cableways and gondolas have to perform heroically in some cases. Weather fluctuations, weight or wear must not be factors that reduce their efficiency. You have to be able to rely on the parts installed in them, just like on our high-performance plastics.
Proven applications of our high-performance materials in the alpine technology include:
