ELECTROPLATING, ANODISING & GALVANIZING EURO-MATIC is one of the worlds most versatile plastic ball manufacturers Established in 1967 in Hungary, Euro-Matic manufactures over 140 different types of hollow plastic balls selling them internationally. Our plastic balls are used on open water, ponds, airports and reservoirs to de ter birds, protecting emergency water supplies in large-scale manufacture from clogging up with algae, playpen balls for children and for heating or cooling chemical tanks during manufacturing processes to improve the working environment, retain temperatures and to reduce evaporation. Known widely in the industry as croffles, customers across steel, chemical, aluminium plants are finding that the application of such a simple product can deliver many benefits. For one of our customers part of their process requires them to hard chrome plate rings in order to achieve a hard wearing surface. The chemicals used are highly corrosive and need to be kept to temperatures in excess of 55 degrees Centigrade. They have vast tanks of various sizes dependent on part size that needs treatment which without the application of Euro-Matic Croffles would cause excess vapour escaping in to the work environment which is harmful to health and can damage the inside of the factory. The other huge benefit of a simple application of balls is the maintenance of the temperature on the tanks, significantly reducing energy consumption by up to 75% as a result of an insulating layer of balls. As you can see all we needed to do was simply pour the balls straight onto the tanks and immediately they form a blanket getting to work straight away and allowing the chemicals, machine parts and dipping processes to continue unaffected. PP balls are suitable for temperatures up to 118 degrees and many complex chemical compositions but we can offer HDPE and PVDF depending on the application For more information on what may be suitable for your needs do get in touch. We pride ourselves on a quality product, with experience in handling a project from start to finish. In the UK we have offices in London and a large distribution site in the midlands.
