JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
JEC Europe 2013 - Based on its experience in the fields of thermoplastic composites and process development, MIR has developed a special coating technology that improves metal-plastic (brass-polypropylene) interface bonding in plastic fittings with a metal insert.
This patented solution improved interface bonding performance in the resulting product by about 150%. Using this coating process, thermoplastic resins with a melting temperature up to 265°C can be applied onto metal inserts with a 50-300 micron coating thickness. The coating capacity of this pilot line is 40,000 inserts (½”) per day.This unique solution was fully developed by MIR through all the stages of a complete R&D study: design of the coating process, simulation of mechanisms in coating line design, analysis of heat and fluid transfer problems in the coating process, manufacturing and testing of a mini coating line, bonding tests, method development, documentation of working conditions, production of an operating manual and development of a complete coating line. A licensing and coating line sales agreement for this technology was signed with a private company in Corlu, Turkey, and an investment of €2,300,000 was made in 2012.More information:www.mirarge.com.trBooth Turkish pavilion
