Various additives can be mixed into the plastic to achieve special characteristics, such as improved fire endurance, UV protection or a desired color.
Having our own sheet production facility means that our customers can choose from a practically unlimited range of colors. The type of sheet surface can be chosen, as well as the additives and stabilizers required for the product’s intended use. The sheet production lines are used to feed our own vacuum molding and plane milling production. This helps us react quickly to our customers’ changing needs and ensures high delivery reliability. The side streams created during the molding process can be reused in extrusion.
Lokari has three extruders, the newest of which was commissioned in 2017. The most common material used for extruding is polyethylene, aka HDPE. We produce 2–12 mm thick sheets with a maximum width of 2 metres. We have the most common sheet sizes and colors in store, so our customers’ orders can be delivered quickly.
