CROSS LINKED E.V.A. COMPOUNDS
Our technology is based on injection-transformed cross linked compounds.
In 1985, Tecnifoam began developing a new line of compounds: micro-expanded EVA. Granulated EVA is a type of compound that was completely designed for the production of items manufactured with injection technologies using cross linked raw materials.
Its most differentiating characteristic is the combined use of low-density compounds (0.1 - 0.35 g / cm3) with good physical and mechanical properties (DIN 53516/77 abrasion, 90/200 mm3) and an excellent touch appearance (hardness 25 + 50 Sha). Granulated EVA compounds can be supplied with the specific requirements needed by the customer in various degrees of hardness, density and colour.
Such compounds are appropriate for a large variety of uses: from shoes and soles to trainers, boots and wheels as well as toys or packaging. Their use is very common in the automotive industry and they can also be found in pools, pool covers and office chairs.
This line of compounds has been designed for special technical items known for their exceptional softness, excellent colouring and wear-resistance. The Unichem mission is to promote and spread awareness for these types of products which will soon replace other technologies and materials.
Our customers very positively value the technical service in this sense.
The company has specialised in the formulation of expanded EVA for a long time - both rigid and plasticised EVA for all sectors where it is used in order to offer the utmost customisation in these compounds and, thus, meet our customers' specific needs.
Investment in research and development is an essential part of our firm's vision.
