German company ALBIS PLASTIC offers wide range of spun-dyed compounds and concentrated dyes allowing plastic products manufacturers to realize most challenging design concepts
Ingeniously and effectively In the context of tough competition in the construction and gardening equipment markets it is impossible to show up focusing just on functionality. More and more often customer decision is affected by high quality tool design, whether it be motor driver or grass-mover. For example Wolf-Garten, a company producing high-functional grass-mowers for comfortable conventional or wireless grass mowing, has developed a new design for its innovative equipment, and that was awarded with major European prize – Reddot Award. For grass-mower body parts manufacturing ALCOM® PP compound with "silvery metallic" color was applied. For body parts manufacturing ALBIS PLASTIC supplies granulate with required shade and gloss. Herewith colors do not wither even under influence of ultraviolet irradiation, so costly and defectable lacquering is no more required. At the same time the material allows to satisfy such requirements as part size precision, high thermal resistance, color consistency and absence of weld lines on the surface. Worthy appearance for reasonable price ALBIS PLASTIC products widely applied in automotive industry allow to gain excellent appearance along with cost reductions. ALCOM® Metallic-Compound, a PA-based spun-dyed silvery compound is applied in passenger compartments. Products made of that material seem lacquered and have resistance to scratching which may occur either during separate part transportation or during car operation. Exclusive design approach is applied in manufacturing engine compartment components for passenger cars as well. Usually engine covers are produced black and look quite prosily. For the majority of producers high quality design is important here too. With engine cover made of ALCOM® Metallic which looks like aluminum even unpretentious engine compartment gains gloss – without lacquering and costly bicomponent molding.
Plenty of options Nowadays individual solutions are required in automotive industry as well as in other fields. Demand for diversity of surface colors and effects is growing constantly. In order to limit expenses and organization costs for materials manufacturing and stocking ALBIS PLASTIC offers polymer self-dying technology through color concentrates of ALCOLOR® series, guaranteeing retention of common color and functional properties of the material. Close communication with consumers resulted particularly in developing polyoxymethylene-based low-toxic concentrate for dying automobile stereo speakers protection cap from Bang&Olufsen. The cap with array structure can be dyed any color, relevant to passenger compartment interior. Self-dying with color concentrates of ALCOLOR® series provide manufacturers with extensive shades variety. For more detailed information, please visit ALBIS PLASTIC Moscow office.
