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