Acrylic (Polymethylmethacrylat (PMMA)

Acrylic is also known as Plexiglass or Perspex. It is a firm, viscous, UV-resistant and transparent plastic. Another characteristic is the light weight and it is often used to manufacture brochure holders. It is available in a variety of transluzent, fluorescent and well colvering colours.


CAD stands for "computer aided design". By using CAD technology first sketches will be transformed into 3-dimensional visualisations. The advantage of this technique is that all following processes are based on these digital data. Not only sampling and prototyping but also the tool making and even many manufacturing processes.


Duroplast is a plastic material that can be moulded one-time only. Once it was put into shape it is cured and cannot change anymore. Examples: laminated fabric, Trespa


Anodising is a technique to finish the surface of aluminium. The upper metal layer oxidates and prevents the deeper layers to corrode assumed there are no breaches.


Extrusion is a continuous production procedure that creates products in unlimited lenght. Extrusion uses a plastic, either resin or powder, that is heated up and is pressed through a profile. Different profile types give the final product its shape. Next to our scanner profiles we also extrude our slatwall system "Flexislot".


This technique is used to finish metal surfaces to make them more resistant to environmental conditions. By dissolving a metal with electric current in a chemical solvent, a slim layer will be added to the metal that gets the finish. When using galvanisation a metal piece can also get a different appearance, e.g. a shiny surface.

Rigid PVC

Rigid PVC is a hard, dimensionally stable material. It is weather proof and can be used outdoors when adding UV-stabalizers. It is temperature resistant from -10°C up to +70°C. The advertising and display industry uses rigid PVC mostly in sheets.

High Frequency Welding

A high frequency electromagnetic alternating field takes care that PVC sheets are heating up. After applying pressure to those they are welded together. Different types of rigidity, thicknesses and colours can be processed.

High-impact PVC

High-impact PVC is similar to rigid PVC. It is not only shock- and impact resistant but also UV-stable. However it can be used in a larger temperature range from -30°C up to +70°C. That's why high-impact PVC is the perfect choice for outdorr applications.

Impuls Heat Bending

Plastic sheets are heated up in a particular area with a heating wire by the use of an impulse (hit of a foot pedal). The heated area is bendable now and bends by using different kinds of tools. The temperature, the heat-up and cooling time depend on the material thickness.

Polycarbonate (PC)

Polycarbonate looks alike acrylic but it is much more shock-resistant. PC is almost unbreakable. It is transparent but colours can be added to it.

Polypropylene (PP)

Polyprpylene is highly heat resistant and is moreover a very viscous plastic.

Polystyrene (PS)

Polystyrene becomes an impact-resistant material when adding caoutchouc during the production process. The main focus of PS is the colour variety and it can be printed on perfectly. Products made of PS, e.g. brochure holders, are an excellent choice for indoor use.

Polyvinylchloride (PVC)

PVC stands for 4 different materials: rigid PVC, soft PVC, high-impact PVC and PVC-C


When powder-coating a material will be covered with a coloured powder. When heating up this powder it melts and flows all-over the material. It is weatherproof now and won't corrode.

Injection Moulding

Large numbers of moulded products can be made cost-effectively when using injection-moulding technology. The moulding material is injected into a tool by the use of an injection moulding machine. The hollow part of the tool determined the shape and surface of the injected part. Those can be light-weighted from a tenth of a gram up to more than 10 kg, e.g. clips, plastic poster frames, shopping baskets.


Thermoplastics are synthetic materials that can be shaped limitless by the use of pressure and heat. This technique is called thermoforming. Examples: PVC, Polyethylene, Acrylics, Nylon

Soft PVC

Soft PVC is available in different degrees of hardness. It is a soft and flexible material. Soft PVC is preferrably used for the manufacturing of sheet products, e.g. price pockets
