Technical & Technological Consulting

Technological consulting from FAP solves the problems of “tomorrow” and helps to save your most valuable resource - TIME.

How often do you analyze production losses associated with product quality, manufacturing defects and violations of foam polymer extrusion technology in general?
And how many potential markets and opportunities have been missed due to a lack of understanding of the technology for producing “non-standard” products?

Rhetorical questions that very often have no answers due to the lack of the most valuable resource, “TIME”.

Very often, production works on the principle of “solving the problem here and now” and frequent cases associated with shrinkage of the foam, destruction of cells and the formation of bubbles on the surface, delamination of the foam during the lamination process due to a violation of the “degassing” process and many other problems turn into this something “normal” and become simply “production costs”.

The production of physically foamed closed-cell polymers is a complex, but at the same time very logical science. Absolutely every technological process from creating a composition of materials, the required dosing volume, % gas solubility in the melt, foaming and crystallization to the process of “maturation” and degassing of the foamed polymer can be fully explained and standardized.
