Municipal and winter service

Reliable products, durable components and a gentle use for human and machine are requirements for elastomers in municipal technology. Best technical properties such as abrasion resistance and resistance to environmental influences are the tasks of elastomers in winter maintenance.

In fire fighting vehicles, garbage disposal and street cleaning, municipal mowing technology and „winter use“ at the airport, vehicles and machines are used with technical equipment that meet these special requirements.

For heavy-duty, dynamic applications in these areas, we manufacture special components made of elastic PUR systems. These include low-wear scrapers, as well as spring and vibration elements for decoupling vibrations and structure-borne noise, as well as seals to protect against dust and dirt. Scrapers in various road construction machines are also part of the range of applications for our elastomers.

In municipal technology, special moulded parts and bearing systems made of our Vulkocell® help to reduce stress and strain on people and machines.

In difficult use in winter service, it depends on absolute reliability. Perfect spreading patterns are a must on the world's commercial airports. Hydrolysis-resistant downpipes and mixing tanks made of Diepothan® help reduce delayed flight operations.
