ALBIS is expanding its comprehensive portfolio of sustainable solutions to include engineering plastics from BASF’s new lowPCF product portfolio (low Product Carbon Footprint).

Sea plastics
The Norwegian company Oldroyd is an expert for the membrane and its injection-moulded fixing product. It uses CX machines from KraussMaffei and 100% sea plastics. The tunnel enclosures for the traffic are more complex than one might think because a sophisticated membrane system lies behind the pipes visible to the driver. This system prevents water from penetrating the soil and causing damage to the concrete.
Varese lion
Donating the opportunity to get a closer look at one of the eight guardians watching over the city: that’s how the idea of creating by 3D printing and life-size one of the eight granite lion heads placed on the Bernascone bell tower, the tallest in Varese, built in 1617, was born.
So LATI3dlab, LATI‘s laboratory dedicated to the formulation and development of materials for 3D printing, immediately accepted the proposal that came from the parish and Gasparoli restorers.
ARPRO and recycling symbol
