System Range Receives Design Plus Award

The Hiendl mounting profile (MP) system product range was awarded on May 25, 2011 the design plus award, the exhibition gives Frankfurt together with the Council for design. Since 2005, the label in the context of the biennial fair award material vision”materials, semi-finished and finished products, innovative materials or processing techniques are used in their manufacture. The waiver is on polluting materials, avoiding energy-intensive manufacturing processes or the recyclability of a material in the selection of the prize winners in the Center. Also the Hiendl system range plastic Hiendl NFC is manufactured from the chocks belongs MP to the 32 winners this year. The composite material developed by the plastics processors Hiendl consists of 30% polypropylene and 70% local natural fibres. With a strength of over 70 N/mm2 and a bending modulus of over 5,500 N/mm2 of Biomaterial clearly exceeds the properties of pure polypropylene and can be in many applications keep conventional metal profiles.

In addition to the excellent material properties, the new profile system compared to aluminium profiles offers a considerably more favorable life cycle assessment. In comparison, the Hiendl system in the production with a saving of 75% of primary energy and over 90% less CO2 significantly better truncates output. His simple and functionally well thought out design makes the profile system to a universally applicable and flexible modifiable mounting kit, convinced in the private sector as in the industrial application. The mounting profiles there are in three different sizes (30 x 30, 45 x 45 and 90 x 45) and dyed in many colors. The PCM and the keyway width back with the versatile applicability of profiles and compatibility with commercially available systems and accessories. The material is also lightweight, corrosion-resistant, can be processed like wood and delivers through the processing always ready to use surfaces.

Special material properties, such as the low Thermal conductivity, the electric insulation ability, or the magnetic neutrality also recommend the free metal Hiendl MP variant for special applications (E.g. EMV test setups). The arch/Furth in Lower Bavaria-based H. Hiendl GmbH & co. KG is a modern producer and service provider in the field of plastics technology. It produces products and components in the injection molding and extrusion. In addition the company for some years been heavily involved with the development of innovative materials. The central theme of the research and development activities is the quality-oriented use of renewable raw materials. A successful proof of this commitment is the Hiendl NFC product line.
