Complex constructions and dimensionally precise parts set most stringent requirements on the production machinery. The versatile and modern machinery and the strong raw material and design knowledge are a great advantage at Pohjoismainen Solumuovi.
No propellants or chemicals are used in the manufacturing of the products. The pre-expanded beads are fed into the electric and fully automatic machines mould, where they are shaped to the final product with pressure and steam. A part which is expanded in a mould gets an excellent surface quality.
EPP and EPE parts are heat-treated in an oven, where the internal pressure of the plastic beads is stabilized and the product is shaped to its final dimensions. EPS products are ready immediately after removal from the mold.
