Density controlled materials

A range of products for injection-moulding which have controlled and variable density between 0.8 and 9.5 g/cm3.

High-density compounds
These are realized by adding heavy fillers of a metal or mineral nature to the thermoplastic resins. In this way, variable densities up to a maximum of 9.5 g/cm3 can be obtained. The choice of suitable neat basic resins makes it possible to obtain the filling of complicated geometric cavities even if they are thin-walled. The manufactured articles achieved show excellent superficial finishing, good dimensional stability and interesting mechanical properties.

Low-density compounds
The use of foaming agents in the field of injection-moulding is often found to be difficult to handle if not completely impractical. Low-density compounds are filled with special hollow glass spheres, ideal for obtaining materials with a density inferior to 1 g/cm3.
Extremely light, of excellent superficial appearance, rigid and with good dimensional stability.
