Hard Soft

The coupling of rigid and elastic materials in a single production cycle is a technical solution that offers many benefits: for example it allows the integration of two or more components, resulting in a considerable saving in assembly costs. In recent years there has also been an increase in applications having a high aesthetic value, in which functional components are enhanced by a soft-touch feeling.

 

ADVANTAGES

  • Reduction of costs due to shorter production cycles
  • Enhancement of the aesthetics and feel of the product
  • Streamlining of production logistics

 

TRANSFORMING TECHNOLOGIES

Co-moulding: allows the injection of two different materials in a single process

Co-extrusion: allows the extrusion of two differenet materials in a single process

Sequential multilayer blow-moulding: allows to obtain ducts and bellows made with two materials, even of different thicknesses

 

SO.F.TER . has a vast range of elastomeric materials suitable for adhesion on a rigid substrate. If you are looking for a solution suitable for your project, contact us and we will be pleased to help you.
