thermoforming of packaging sealing plate with ruby red teflon


Posted Posted in Dictionary

Thermoforming Thermoforming is the process by which a piece with a certain shape is obtained. It starts with a sheet or plate of semi-finished thermoplastic which, by applying heat and using a vacuum with a mould or die, softens, and adapts to the shape of the mould. The heat applied must be the correct one […]

Posted Posted in Dictionary

Cataphoresis Cataphoresis is a method of coating by immersion that consists of the contribution of a solid component with an electrical charge and in dispersion on the surface of the object to be coated with an opposite electrical charge. In this process, cathodic electrodeposition occurs, where the charged particles move within an electric field towards […]

endless screw with Xylan fluoropolymer for meat sector


Posted Posted in Dictionary

Fluoropolymer A fluoropolymer is a fluorocarbon-based polymer with multiple carbon and fluorine bonds. It is characterised by a high resistance to solvents, acids, and bases. Fluoropolymers share the non-stick and low-friction properties of fluorocarbons. Thanks to the multiple carbon and fluorine bonds, they are mechanically characterized as thermoset or thermoplastic. They can be homopolymers (macromolecules […]
