Elesa launches standard components for hygiene applications


The UK-based producers of standard components for the mechanical industry has launched its high quality chrome on plastic technology

Elesa, a specialist designer, manufacturer and distributor of standard components in plastic and metal for the mechanical industry, has announced the launch of a chrome on plastic technology.

Based in Lincolnshire, in the UK, the company said the new technology is particularly suitable for applications on machines and equipment whose parts, for hygienic reasons, must be frequently cleaned by using water jets or steam, such as those required in food processing applications.

Often a suitable replacement for stainless steel in many arduous or specialist situations, chrome offers a considerable cost saving, the company said.

The chrome finished polyamide technopolymer range is an expanding feature within the Elesa portfolio of standard industrial components. The chrome-plating finish makes the surface finish semi-glossy and homogeneous to facilitate cleaning operations. The range is tested at -30°C up to +80°C.
