Thermal insulation plates for rubber processing

Know-how and know-why
With more than 40 years of experience

When it comes to rubber injection moulding, it makes all the difference to use insulation plates designed with the right materials, professionally machined and installed, and capable of withstanding high moulding pressures and temperatures and providing optimum thermal insulation. These insulation plates ensure low manufacturing costs, short processing times and provide the desired product quality. KE Plastic specialises in the mechanical and thermal dimensioning of these insulation plates for installation in rubber injection moulds between the heating plate and the clamping plate. The plates are made according to customer specifications in machining centres specially designed for machining insulation materials.

The founder and managing director of KE Plastic GmbH, Dr. Edgar von Gellhorn, received his doctorate in the field of plastics manufacturing and processing. He has over 40 years of experience in the rubber processing sector. This includes compounding, extrusion, injection moulding and calendering. He also specialises in the development, manufacture and use of high load capacity insulation materials.
