Transport & Storage

Making light work of your storage and transportation needs

A product that is less heavy ensures that the transport of that product is less polluting. Every kg of plastic packaging material saves two litres of fuel during transport. This leads to a reduction in CO2 emissions. Also, plastic composites, solid as they are, allow weight reduction. Products packed in plastic are optimally protected, take up less space and are lighter in weight. This is not only cheaper and more economical, but also better for the environment. In the case of storage, for example, consider foldable plastic pallet boxes, and in the case of transport, vehicle parts (containers, bodywork, etc.).

About automotive plastics

Traditional materials such as wood and steel are often replaced by plastics for weight savings, durability and resistance to external weather influences. Due to the high rigidity of the various synthetic sandwich panels, constructive parts such as floors and walls are also made with it. Weight savings in particular play an important role in the increasingly strict regulations regarding CO2 emissions, including fully electric vehicles where every kg means extra kilometres.

About plastics for bulk good handling

Indispensable because of their unique properties. Polypropylene and  HMPE are both very impact resistant, chemically resistant and are Low Surface Energy (LSE) materials which ensures that virtually no materials adhere to them. This makes them ideal as bulk containers or as cladding material for existing Bulk handling equipment such as Tippers and Silos. Due to the great diversity of material types, we can always offer a suitable solution.

About plastics for containers

Polypropylene sheets are ideally suited as cladding and division of gitterboxes, or other types of packaging. The light weight contributes to the payload of the boxes. The stable foam sheet can offer a solution under extreme loads.

About plastics for flight cases

The ideal reason for using plastic sheet material for making a flight case is weight saving. If the flight case is lighter, it can hold more, can carry more and/or save space and fuel.

About plastics for cold stores

Depending on the condition of the surface, there are several options for providing the walls of cold stores with a plastic finish. These materials are chosen for their mechanical and hygienic properties, with the background providing the structural strength of the wall. Another option is to do this with, for example, hollow chamber plates made of polypropylene. These plates themselves provide considerably more constructive strength and they can also be seamlessly welded together. Each of the chosen solutions provides protection against damage to the walls and contributes to a hygienic working environment.

Our solutions also contribute to achieving a HACCP approved process. The options mentioned provide a hygienic, easy-to-clean working environment. Please note that no product receives HACCP approval; this is simply not possible. HACCP stands for Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point. It is a food safety system that producers use to prevent food from becoming unsafe. For each phase in production, it is mapped out what can go wrong and how this can be prevented. So, again, it is not certification for a material, but for a process.

About plastic for car washes

The same solutions can be used for walls in car washes as for wall finishing in cold stores (or warehouses, for example).

The materials that can be used for this purpose are resistant to the chemical components in cleaning agents and to high-pressure spraying. The above materials offer an impact and scratch-resistant solution for the application.
