In addition to excellence in design and engineering, the quality of the materials makes the difference in determining reliability and durability.
Following are the main materials we use in our plastic molding production process
It’s the material of which are made all the buckets, the surfaces of the Giotto trolley, Duetto body and the one of Prexa. PP copolymer is a thermoplastic elastomer with better mechanical characteristics than the more commonly used Polypropylene monomer. The PP copolymer is more resistant, melts at a higher temperature, moreover possesses high resistance to chemical agents: it retains its strength characteristics in the presence of aqueous solutions containing salts, acids and strong alkalis. We use only non-recycled PP with great flexibility and strength that provides excellent shock-proof performance at high and low temperatures.
POM is a semi-crystalline copolymer of great mechanical characteristics. It is characterized by a series of properties that place it as an alternative solution to replace some metals such as steel, brass, aluminum in many mechanical components. Null water absorption, great dimensional precision and mechanical stability call for it’s use whenever strenght and thight tolerances are required. With the selection of first choice POM, TWT maximizes hardness, stability and the wear resistance. Gears and jaws Prexa, all coupling systems and levers and moving parts of tools, Plano as well as Flight and mop clamp are made of POM
Our strong expertise and experience in engineering plastics technology applied to cleaning allows us to develop special composite materials when is needed. It is the case with the torque shaft of Prexa loaded with fiberglass which maximize mechanical chemical and wear resistence; Another example is the structure of Plano, for which a particular formulation of ABS that emphasizes the characteristics of lightness, stiffness and impact resistance, was developed.
