The core business since 1985 of LTP is Sheet Plastics milling, bending and mouting. A proprietary and innovative process that is inspired by the technologies used for wood or metal.
The innovation of this process, i.e.« the implementation of a new or significantly improved production or distribution method. »
https://ec.europa.eu/ was mainly driven by the search for a raw material to manufacture “enclosures” with a lower mass than metal.
Mass is the amount of matter contained in an object. The greater the mass of a body, the smaller the change produced by an applied force. It should not be confused with weight, even though in everyday language we use weight instead of mass. The mass of an object does not vary depending on where in the universe it is measured. On the moon, the same object presses less hard on the ground where it is placed, (its weight is lower) but its mass is the same.
Here are the values for the mass of different materials:
The mass of the plastic is expressed via a spectrum that includes ABS, PS, Polycarbonate, PMMA and PVC.
Finally for specific mechanical resistance needs, we use polycarbonate. For special chemical resistance needs, we use PVC. The windows are made of PMMA or transparent polycarbonate. The use of each material is defined in your unique Technical Project File (DT) and confirmed via the delivery note as a Certificate of Plastic Conformity.
