Plastics

The plastics industry is spending a lot of money on maintaining and purchasing vacuum pumps and vacuum-related equipment. In the chemical industry, the pumps are exposed to a lot of aggressive chemicals that require resistant vacuum pump materials. Piab has a good product range to meet the specific demands of this industry such as unloading high temperature parts with textured surfaces, but, also mark-free and PWIS-free (Paint Wetting Impairment Substances) requirements.
