Location Herrstein / Germany

Acquired on 01.08.2019, HAPPICH Herrstein GmbH in Germany, manufactures body parts and exterior panels for agricultural, construction machinery, trucks and buses. Mostly large-area parts, they are manufactured from an unfilled thermoset in a P-DCPD-RIM process.

Processing Technology:

  • RIM (Reaction Injection Molding) similar to casting.
  • The use of lower pressure and lower molding temperatures, allow the usage of Aluminium Moulds.
  • Specially purposed for small to medium series

Material is characterized by:

  • Very high impact resistance, even at very low temperatures (-40/+60 °C)
  • High process control and repeatability (Cpk Index)
  • Very good bonding with most adhesives and Optimum paintability

Great freedom of design "Designer Friendly" for large and complex components (wall thickness variations, thread insert, etc.)
