WALDKRAIBURG, Germany—Biologic GmbH will use Thermolast K material from Kraiburg TPE as the material to provide a tight seal for its bio-waste filter cover.
Kraiburg said the product's flexibility and weather-resistance makes it well suited for outdoor areas, and that it maintains a tight seal even under extreme temperature fluctuations.
The biological filter material in the waste container cover breaks down odors, while the tight seal prevents pests. Biologic chose an especially soft material for the seal in order to compensate for any unevenness and to provide an extra-tight seal between the cover and the container.
According to Kraiburg, the material withstands temperatures between -42 and +125 degrees C. Thermolast K adheres well to polyethylene, claims Kraiburg, with which it is processed in a two-component injection moulding process.
The bio-filter cover fits all common waste containers up to 240 liters.
