Technology

Laminate

  A laminate is a material  constructed by uniting two or more layers of material together. The process of  creating a laminate is lamination, which in common parlance refers to  sandwiching something between layers of plastic and sealing them with heat  and/or pressure, usually with an adhesive. However, in electrical engineering,  lamination is a construction technique used to reduce unwanted heating effects  due to eddy currents in components, such as the magnetic cores of transformers.

The materials used in laminates  can be the same or different. An example of the type of laminate using  different materials would be the application of a layer of plastic film — the  "laminate" — on either side of a sheet of glass — the laminated subject. Vehicle windshields are commonly made by laminating a tough plastic  film between two layers of glass. Plywood is a common example of a laminate  using the same material in each layer. Glued and laminated dimensioned timber  is used in the construction industry to make wooden beams, Glulam, with sizes  larger and stronger than can be obtained from single pieces of wood.

Glass-reinforced plastic (GRP)

It is a composite material or fiber-reinforced  plastic made of a plastic reinforced by fine fibers made of glass. Like graphite-reinforced  plastic, the composite material is commonly referred to by the name of its  reinforcing fibers (fiberglass). The plastic is thermosetting, most often polyester  or vinylester, but other plastics, like epoxy (GRE), are also used. The glass is mostly in the form of chopped strand mat (CSM), but woven fabrics are also used.
As with many other composite materials (such as reinforced concrete), the two materials act together, each overcoming the deficits of the other. Whereas the plastic resins are strong in compressive loading and relatively weak in tensile strength, the glass fibers are very strong in tension but have no strength against compression. By combining the two materials together, GRP becomes a material that resists well both compressive and tensile forces. The two materials may be used uniformly or the glass may be specifically placed in those portions of the structure that will experience tensile loads.

Production process

Laminate production is performed in a dedicated workshop hall equipped with temperature and humidity control systems as well as ventilation and dust management systems.
Appropriate conditions for production are essential to achieve proper laminate quality.
In our production process for polymer composite elements, we use mainly a contact forming-hand lay-up method as well as other methods like vacuum bag molding and pressure bag molding. We realize customer requirements such as monolith and sandwich constructions, composite joining and many others.
Laminate production is conducted on the mould basis ( hand lay up ) with gelcoat - fine polyester surface layer. Gelcoats color depends on Customer and is related to RAL standard.

Our production is realized based on technical documentation or samples delivered by Customer. We start with the mold construction, then prototype production and afterwards we release a series production 

On demand, we are also able to build plugs and molds from blueprints and designs provided by our customers. We guarantee the highest technical level, quick turnaround and solid production
Our experience enables us to quote very accurately. We quote based on:
