Production Methods used

Joining / Bonding:

  • Welding
    • HF high frequency welding
      Welding the material and cooling it down under compression with Radio Frequency to make the TPU material flow nearly seamless to form a uniform thickness with the original material wall thickness.
    • Heat contact – with silver alloy heating element
      Welds are welded surface to surface after which the weld are compressed while cooling.
    • Hot air – hot filtered and conditioned contaminent-, oil- and greas- free compressed air

Cutting:

  • Stainless Steel knives
  • Water Jet cutting
