Lightweight constructions bring lower energy consumption and reduced environmental impact. Construction plastics are the optimal solution since components constructed with these materials see an 80-85 percent weight reduction in comparison to their metal counterparts.
Construction plastics bring many other advantages such as low friction and high wear resistance. With bearings, slide rails, rollers, roller conveyors, carriers, etc. made of construction plastic, you can significantly reduce maintenance costs and increase operational reliability. Construction plastics are also resistant to chemicals and various liquids, and can withstand high and low temperatures.
Construction plastics can therefore be used in a wide range of application areas.
