Koemmerling Chemische Fabrik has announced the refining and repositioning of its Kodiphone and Kodiguard range of liquid composite products. The revised range will be referred to as liquid composites, which better describes the nature of the products.
Koemmerling Chemische Fabrik GMBH is refining and repositioning its Kodiphone and Kodiguard range of liquid composite products. The revitalized range will be rebranded and packaged and customers will also benefit from training and support packages to ensure that they fully understand not only the benefits of the products, but also how best to use them.
Chris Davis, Composites Manager for the company, explained more; “We have recognized that in the past some composite products have not lived up to expectations. This may have been the fault of the product or its incorrect application. Our new approach builds on our strong technical expertise whilst recognizing that our customers need support to understand how and when to use the products and the best way of incorporating them into both their existing processes and how they might allow them to extend their offerings.”
One customer that has already benefited from Kommerling’s new approach is security specialist, Hamilton Erskine. “Kommerling’s willingness to listen to the challenges we faced combined with their extensive knowledge and understanding of the composite products has been an integral part of the development and success of a number of our products. It is a real partnership and the quality of Kommerling’s products is matched by the quality of their expertise,” commented Mike McNeill, director at Hamilton Erskine.
The revised range will be referred to as liquid composites, which better describes the nature of the products. One aspect that has been overlooked in the past are the environmental credentials of this type of approach, both in its initial production (handled at the company’s European manufacturing plant in Germany), and its later application. Kommerling has been able to reduce the carbon footprint of the production process and features such as natural curing, which requires no additional power is just one example range’s enhanced ‘green’ credentials. When used in applications such as bullet resistant windscreens for vehicles, the significant reduction in weight in comparison to other solutions currently on the market has a knock on effect in reducing fuel consumption.
Other applications where the product has already been successfully used include bonding fire glass to other glass, bonding multi-layered toughened and textured glass, bonding to manufactured DGU specifications (meeting low-E compliance) and use in curved glass applications.
The key products in the environmental liquid composite range are Koediphone™ Acoustic, Koediguard™ UVS UV Blocker, Koediguard™ Safety available in ultra violet or three-part exothermic curing products. High performance manual attack and Ballistic products can also be manufactured using liquid composite material.
