Molecor has closed the K2019 with renewed energy to develop and launch new projects over the next few years. The large number of visitors and interest shown in the company as well as in its products, pipes and fittings in Oriented PVC as well as in the technology to manufacture them, has resulted in the start of new developments and is a great challenge that Molecor will face with optimism to provide the market with the needs demanded.
With a production capacity of 7200 tons per year, the M-OR-P 5012 technology, developed exclusively by Molecor and the only one that will allow the manufacture of PVC-O pipes from DN500 mm (18") to 1200 mm in diameter (48") and 25 bar of pressure (305 psi), has been one of the points that has attracted the greatest interest of the visitors of the event. The high efficiency and high productivity of this system allow manufacturing PVC-O pipes of the largest diameter in the world in this material in line with conventional extruders, a fact that will revolutionize the sector in a short space of time.
Oriented PVC fittings, unique worldwide, have also aroused great interest among those attending the event. These fittings allow the installation of continuous and integrated networks in which all the elements have the same characteristics and advantages. This uniformity in the properties allows the networks to present great advantages over those of other materials as well as greater sustainability and life expectancy.
Besides this, the CPVC-O pipes, a new project in which Molecor is working on, has been one of the protagonists of the event. The potential advantages of this new product would result in a saving of raw materials, energy and carbon footprint compared to the CPVC pipe, becoming a competitive material in this market and also in PVC-O pipe markets where the ambient temperature and / or service outside of 45 °C.
Given the extraordinary results obtained in this important international event, Molecor faces new challenges with great optimism and thanks all visitors for the great interest shown, both in the company and in its developments.
