SPARLONZ PLASTICS Other Services Capabilities
Sparlonz Plastics Polyurethane Manufacturing
Polyurethane manufacturing is a process which works by reacting polyols and diisocyanatos. Used to reinforce plastic products where necessary for their function.
In House Tooling
Having our own onsite tool room, allows us to collaborate closely with customers to design bespoke tooling from a simple sketch or from full CAD data and ensure that all tools / trim jigs are manufactured to give the best return for the customer.
Tools can be made from aluminium / resin and wood with trim jigs being created from GRP. If unable to complete any tooling in house, then Sparlonz work with a very select group of tooling manufacturers who understand our processes and requirements.
Through our experience of producing dunnage trays a preferred material is HDPE. This offers a great capability of material control as we extrude our own HDPE on site. The benefit of using HDPE plastic, is that it offers very good resistance to impacts, chemical damage and other potentially harmful external factors, as well as being low on abrasion so will not damage the parts. It can also withstand hostile weather conditions, including UV rays which allows it to be kept outside or in damp conditions more easily than other materials as it is impervious to water ingress, solvents and many acids and chemicals. HDPE is also safe against mildew, resistant to corrosion and will not rot, rust or succumb to insect damage.
The benefits of Sparlonz making dunnage trays from HDPE extruded on our own lines is that we can maintain quality (ISO9001:2015) and we can control the costs for material and process which in turn are able to be passed onto the customer.
With our extensive practical experience in this market segment, we can advise on economical project tooling from initial concept to scheduled production and we can work from either a simple sketch or from full CAD data.
