The company uses innovative processes to produce and finish technical plastic parts and components. Development results and products can be found worldwide in premium cars and in the heating and hot water sector.
..We don’t want you to think destroying things is fun for us – but sometimes it helps! Do you know how much pressure a plastic part that is already 15 years old can withstand? We don’t just test material when it is in pristine condition.
We developed a test specimen called the GEALAN Xbody to examine the effects of ageing on materials as well. We use this device – similar to the crash test dummies car manufacturers use – to test engineering strength. We investigate a wide range of plastics from different manufacturers in our own lab to ensure they are suitable for use in later applications.
What makes the process so unique: We artificially age the plastics. We developed a proprietary method that enables us to realistically age various materials in a short amount of time.
It all starts with an idea! An idea of how our glove box should look and function quickly becomes a concept, which is then implemented with the help of bright minds, many different development programs and final tests and prototypes.
