TPE provides a tight seal for bio-waste container filter covers
ERJ staff report (BC)
Waldkraiburg, Germany – Biologic GmbH chose Thermolast K material from Kraiburg TPE as the material to provide a tight seal for its bio-waste filter cover. Due to its flexibility and weather-resistance, says Kraiburg, the material is especially well suited for outdoor areas and maintains a tight seal even under large temperature fluctuations.
Biologic notes that the separate collection of bio-waste in the summer normally leads to problems such pests and strong odours.
The biological filter material in the company’s waste container cover breaks down unpleasant odours, while the tight seal of the cover forms a barrier against pests.
Biologic chose an especially soft material for the seal in order to compensate for any unevenness and to provide an extra-tight seal between the cover and the container.
According to Kraiburg, the material withstands temperatures between -42 and +125 degrees Celsius. The UV and ozone resistance of Thermolast K are said to have been verified in the standard Kalahari and Florida tests.
Thermolast K adheres very well to polyethylene (PE), claims Kraiburg, with which it is processed in a two-component injection moulding process.
The bio-filter cover fits all common waste containers up to 240 litres.
