Fibermaq has supplied three machines to the local operations of the Italian company Polynt, a company specialised in the production of resins, gelcoats and plastic putty.
The equipment, which consist of spray-up, gelcoat and RTM injection machines, all of the Evolution family, has been adapted to enable Polynt’s technicians to transport them to their clients. “We resized the structures of the machines to allow them to be more compact and portable, but their flow and performance are exactly the same as the conventional models,” said Christian de Andrade, Director of Fibermaq.
Pedro de Souza, Technical Assistant of Polynt, explains that the machines will be used for both external demonstrations and testing at the company’s units – Polynt has plants in the states of São Paulo (Taboão da Serra and Piracicaba) and Rio Grande do Sul (Caxias do Sul), Brazil. “We already had the machines produced by Fibermaq, a company that has always provided us excellent support.”
