EPS and fine powder coatings – a love story

2024-02-12T10:21:12+01:007. January 2024|Technical Applications|

In 2024, expandable polystyrene (EPS) celebrates its anniversary: the 75th anniversary of its (accidental) discovery. A lot has happened since then and EPS is used in so many areas of our daily lives that it has become indispensable. Foodstuffs such as vegetables and fish are packaged in it to keep them cool, transportable and fresh for longer. Electronics, household appliances and furniture are wrapped in it for transportation to their destination to protect them from damage. And in the construction sector, EPS is used on building facades to provide efficient thermal insulation. This is just a small selection of the possible uses. Special fields of application, such as cool boxes for vaccines (see article: How SOFTENOL® is helping to contain the pandemic), round off the versatility of this material.

Detailed insights into the world of technical applications with scanning electron microscopy

There is a world that remains hidden from most people - the fascinating world of surfaces on a microscopic level. In the "Technical Applications" business unit of IOI Oleo GmbH, we use the latest technologies every day in order to be able to offer our customers the best possible quality and innovation. One of these technologies, which plays a crucial role in our everyday work, is scanning electron microscopy (SEM).

Between regular meetings, urgent orders and video meetings, scanning electron microscope images are evaluated in order to further optimize performance in EPS production. The team in the Technical Applications Business Unit does everything they can to bring our customers’ individual blends to perfection so that the finished products meet the highest standards.

SOFTENOL® 3829 to increase efficiency in aluminium processing

2022-09-06T14:58:40+02:001. September 2022|Technical Applications|

The global balance in trade has been permanently disrupted by the corona pandemic, and Russia’s war against Ukraine is doing the rest. Due to the poor availability of gas, this has recently led to dramatically increasing energy costs, which is particularly problematic for the energy-consuming aluminium production. Our SOFTENOL® 3829 doesn’t help to reduce energy prices, but it does ensure that aluminium is processed more efficiently and therefore more cost-effectively in different ways. For example, for the production of menu trays for convenience meals.

Ready-to-use Blends for the Production of EPS
