Products in the form of profiles, (structural profiles, rails, edges, cords, wires, handles, rectangular profiles, gaskets, tubes, hoses, coils etc.) of various shapes and sizes find their application in building, automotive, furniture, electrical, packaging, consumer and other industries.
For the packaging industry we produce e.g. profiles for the assembly of multi-way transport boxes, various handles, covers, rails, protective hoses and hundreds profiles of different shapes and for many applications.
The production of extruded profiles has had many years’ tradition in Fatra, a.s. We have more than 20 extruding lines where profiles of various materials can be produced. By combined extrusion of more types of materials (co-extrusion) we achieve better utility properties of the profiles. We produce a part of the profiles of our own PVC granulate whose characteristics and colour can be adapted to the customers’ requirements. Also, we produce most of our extruding tools in our own toolworks and besides we provide our customers with technical assistance with regard to the design and development of profiles.
Extruded products can be finalized in-line with the customers’ requirements as follows: the products can be divided to the required length, cut and punched, fitted with adhesive tape on both sides, ink-jet marked and printed, printed in colour, structured, cut through, wound in endless lengths etc.
We extrude plastic profiles of various material types:
• Novoplast® - plasticized PVC
• Novodur® - hard PVC
• Polyethylene ( HD-PE, LD-PE, TPE )
• Polypropylene (PP)
• ABS, PS, ASA etc.
Most of the processed materials have their own scale of colour variants summarized in the respective colour system. Colour shades are generally prepared on the customers’ request based on the RAL colour chart.
Profiles of plasticized and hard PVC are made of our own granulate. PVC granulate is a semi-finished product designed for further industrial processing. Its most frequent applications are the automotive industry, civil engineering industry, shoe production, electrical industry, the production of cables, fences etc. The granulate does not contain heavy metals and can be supplied in the DOP free or phthalate-free version. Depending on the technology of further processing granulate is divided into granulate for extrusion and injection moulding. Granulate is divided into the following types:
• NOVOPLAST® – NP granulate = plasticized PVC
• NOVODUR® – ND granulate = hard PVC
