From Anti-fingerprint to Plastic Chassis: Senoplast Presents New Surfaces
Austrian plastics expert Senoplast will be presenting several new products at K 2019, such as the third generation of anti-fingerprint furniture foils. Senoplast also has new surfaces for automotive applications – used for the chassis of the e.Go electric car. Another new product is the ultra-light, ultra- impact resistant senosan C100MATT polycarbonate sheet, which is ideally suited for suitcases and special cases.
“Our high-quality foils and sheets are used in many areas, such as kitchens and living areas, as well as for applications such as automotive, suitcases, bus, caravan, and railway. They score points with their sophisticated look, trendy colors, and high durability and safety.”
The senosan AM1800TopMatt AF foil represents the third generation of matt surfaces from the plastics specialist. An innovative coating technology gives it one- of-a-kind anti-fingerprint properties. In addition to repelling dirt effectively, the foil also has an especially smooth feel. It is available in a thickness of 0.5 mm in all standard colors, as well as in special formats. senosan AM1800TopMatt AF is suitable for a wide variety of interior furniture solutions as a 1D and 2D solution (flat lamination and post-forming).
Senoplast’s trade fair booth also features an e.Go electric car, whose innovative structural plastic chassis cuts both weight and costs. The basis for the parts, which are manufactured using thermoforming methods, is the ABS-PMMA sheet in novel metallic shades. The advantage: Even with quadruple wall thickness, the plastic is only half as heavy as conventional steel construction. With a density of around 1 kg/dm3, ABS-PMMA is just one-eighth the weight of steel (7.8 kg/dm3). The material also forgives minor damage, such as parking bumps, without permanent deformation.
Senoplast is also presenting another new product, one specifically for the luggage industry: senosan C100 MATT, a sheet with a matt surface that is characterized by its high impact strength. The multi-layer polycarbonate bonding is especially suitable for suitcases, where maximum toughness and minimum weight are the objectives. The new surface is available in uni and metallic matt, with a smooth or embossed structure.
Senoplast also produces special sheets for railway and bus applications. The matt, halogen-free, flame-retardant senosan C60FR-5 PC/ABS compound is designed for side sheets and partitions in trains and satisfies the requirement HL2 in thicknesses between 2mm and 5mm and HL3 with 2mm thicknesses. It also has outstanding mechanical properties (e-module 4,000 MPa, breaking elongation >25%, density 1.3g/cm3). For buses, the plastics expert has the product senosan CA60FR-3U Supermatt in its portfolio. This sheet, which is also halogen-free and flame retardant, satisfies the ECE standard R118.03 with 1.5-7 mm thickness at a density of 1.29g/cm3 and 3,700 MPa e-module. The sheet is also available in a version with a lower density of 1.19 g/cm3 and an e-modulus of 2,400 MPa.
