SAERfoam® IN TRUCK BODIES OF STEINER
Founded in 1982, Steiner established in Riedin Austria, has the reputation to produce and develop quality and innovative solutions related to civil service equipment. One of its main product lines is truck bodies.
Together with a fire truck manufacturer, Steiner developed and produced part of the well-known truck Panther from GRP (Glass FibreReinforced Plastic).
The idea of the project is to use SAERfoam® PU 15 O 10-30 G for the parts to achieve new benefits.TECHNICAL BENEFITS
- cost savings
- better temperature resistance
REINFORCING THIS IDEA
The bodies of the entire 12 m length of the truck are manufactured in GRP. This partnership with the constructor has today driven to the project “team cabin”. The key of its success is the sandwich structure which helped develop bigger cabins for drivers, water tank, and combined accessories. Keen for improvements, Steiner and SAERTEX used SAERfoam® glass reinforced core to achieve better temperature resistance and increase efficiency together with cost saving
THE SUCCESS STORY
In summary, a positive conclusion can be drawn from the project as it has been proven possible to reduce the core cost after impregnation by almost 10% after using SAERfoam®.
