Fibre-reinforced plastics (Durostone®)
Durostone® is a fibre-reinforced plastic that is used in a variety of areas, for example, in chemical and maritime applications, where resistance to aggressive media and thermal stability up to 180 degrees Celsius are significant. Furthermore, Durostone® fasteners are also used for construction projects as an alternative to steel, since Durostone® is substantially lighter and electrically, as well as thermally insulating, corrosion-resistant and resistant to aggressive media. Depending on requirements, polyester resin sheets with various properties can likewise be made from Durostone®, e.g. in terms of fire class, thermal properties or resistance to chemicals.
Durostone® at J. Schwarz
J. Schwarz processes Durostone® as a particularly suitable material for 3D milling with 3-axis and 5-axis machines. The maximum 3-axis processing area is 4000 x 2000 mm, and the maximum 5-axis cube shape encompasses 2000 mm x 1000 mm x 600 mm. A total of six milling centres are available.
