We are producing aluminium profiles and I am searching for a material that won't damage the profile's surface quality. Is teflon OK? Which materials can I use for especially separator for the layers between profiles when storing them and in places where friction may occur because of the motion between profile and material?

Thanks

Do you mean the damage to the surface of the profile during transport or shipment?

Returnable custom mold has already repaid 3x the cost for me. It is also enviromentaly friendly for those with enviromental standards and budget crunch. 1st year is painful 2 years later very pleased with outcome.

Depending on the shape and weight of the profile will drive your requirement. The following are my suggestions:

  • Paper sheet between the profiles
  • Heavy cardbard between the profiles
  • Custom formed "crate type" material
  • Foam
  • Teflon sheet (I thnk this is what you suggested)
  • Nylon sheet
  • Custom formed plastics, etc.

Hope this helps!

Thanks a lot. This information will hep me much. I have another question I think may be you have an idea about this topic also.

I am analyzing all process in the factory. One of the things that I would like to reduce operation times. It takes too long when putting the aluminium profiles to the storage cars workers. So I would like to reduce this process time. Do you know any storage method which requires less operation time?

Thanksss
