ADVANCED POLYMERS SOLUTIONS

APS is Cimaplast srl’s new Hi-Tech division dedicated to the research, design and manufacture of profiles and tubes for critical applications that require the use of advanced, high-performance composite polymers, which cannot be easily extruded with conventional technologies, together with precision extrusions to ensure compliance with minimal dimensional and performance tolerances.
For years, planners, designers, and managers have been searching for valid replacements for metals used for a wide array of products and components. The need to replace metals with alternative materials arises from the high weight of metals, expensive production processes often limited in the shapes they can provide, and even from corrosion problems, which often force the use of expensive protective coatings.
Engineering plastics can be used in an increasingly wider range of applications. This allows for the creation of innovative and competitive products, which stand out for their high thermal, electrical, chemical, and wear resistance, as well as physical and thermal properties similar to those of metals.
Choosing the right type of polymer to manufacture a product is very important. The wide range of engineering plastics can provide different physical, chemical, rheological, and mechanical properties by adding fillers that can change their behaviour whilst maintaining the intrinsic characteristics of the matrix. This means that we can obtain a huge number of products by combining different polymers with different additives.
The correct design of the cross-section to exploit the exclusive advantages of extrusion can minimise costs and maximise benefits. Taking simple measures during the design stage will help provide a better solution for your application.
