Sector overview

The industrial machinery world demands solutions that will be reliable over time and capable of enhancing the performance, productivity and profitability of the processes in question, thus increasing the competitiveness of the products and services offered.
Engineering polymers still face various challenges: high temperatures, intense and repetitive mechanical stress, also over long periods of time, chemically aggressive environments, electrostatic charge buildup and heat accumulation.
LATI is ready to address these challenges with its range of structural, conductive and self-lubricating compounds, also developed from ultra-high performing polymers such as PA, PPS, PPA, PPSU and PEEK.

Hydraulic and pneumatics

LATI materials make it easy to manage gases and liquids generally, including those under pressure and at high temperatures. Valves, filters, couplings and pumps can be made both from plain polymers and from reinforced and antistatic ones.
These materials also allow the replacement of metal in applications involving drinking water, flammable liquids, multi-phase slurry, aggressive chemicals or simple compressed air.
The advantages? Resistance, strength, dimensional accuracy and costs.

Heavy equipment

This category covers heavy goods vehicles, earthmovers and vehicles for agricultural or other special terrains, in short, all vehicles that can benefit from the classic LATI solutions that allow metal replacement and ensure resistance to temperatures of over 200°C, fatigue, chemicals and solar radiation.
Antistatic compounds and materials for EMI shielding and heat dissipation complete the range

Industrial machinery

LATI special compounds are suitable for an endless list of industrial applications: looms for the textile industry, robots, conveyor belts, packing machines, bottling machines, turbines and compressors, to name just some.
They are self-lubricating, electrically and thermally conductive, and reinforced with glass and carbon fibres for maximum rigidity, dimensional accuracy and resistance to heat and mechanical stress.

Professional work tools

Professional work tools require great resistance to temperature and mechanical stress, such as impacts and vibration fatigue.
In this regard, LATI offers interesting opportunities in terms of dry lubrication and anti-wear performance, antistatic features for ATEX instruments, self-extinguishing properties and aesthetics.
Again, reliability, durability and cost are priorities

Safety and PPE

Personal protection equipment is designed to safeguard many categories of worker, each with specific needs.
LATI delivers self-extinguishing and heat- and flame-resistant materials, antistatic products for ATEX environments, EMI shielding for electronic equipment, and structural and shockproof compounds.
All are designed to protect people at work.
