Monkal boost for GCC industries.

Hannecard's Monkal polyurethane range, world renowned for coating behaviour, is now available in this region, the company's Saudi subsidiary has announced. Hannecard Saudi executive director Saleh Al Bargan said the soft Monkal polyurethanes were launched at the beginning of this year in the GCC GCC: see Gulf Cooperation Council.

 region and would be available along with its other rubber covering capabilities that it has been selling since 2001. Monkal has been described as a breakthrough product. "All our polyurethane and rubber compounds are specially designed for coating purposes and combine extreme purity with high and consistent performance," said Al Bargan. "By installing high-precision grinding capabilities, through the development of new concepts and thanks to its world-wide production and distribution possibilities, Hannecard has achieved a position as leader in the field of coating coverings, he added. The company says the combination of high performance, purity and reliability remained unrivalled. "The development of special Monkal formulas has led to a product range that is unique in the market: compounds with improved solvent resistance (up to 50 per cent for certain solvents), compounds with improved physical properties (tear and abrasion abrasion /abra·sion/ (ah-bra´zhun)

 resistance), compounds ideal for long runs without change-over and compounds with special filler technology, offering a previously unseen degree of purity, wetability and grindability." Thanks to the high surface energy, water-based coatings can be perfectly spread and applied, offering a high-end solution for chemcoating, it said To meet the requirements of different coating applications, other polyurethane compounds such as Hannecoat and Hanneflex were developed as well as a full range of special rubber compounds based on EPDM EPDM Ethylene-Propylene-Diene-Monomer

 rollers, sleeves that allow easy stock and covering management, lightweight rollers and integrated solutions such as Handy-Coat and Ebosleeve are just a few examples." Within Hannecard-Kalker's long tradition as roller specialists, the know-how related to coating processes has always been of strategic value. "With the development of the Monkal polyurethane range, Hannecard-Kalker has achieved a major breakthrough," the company said. Hannecard provides a suitable product, covering or surface whether the coat is for steel, aluminium or a non-ferrous strip, whether the process is continuous or not or whether one applies solvent or water-based products. "The Monkal polyurethanes are renowned world-wide for their unique coating behaviour, their purity and their long lifetime. Monkal is easy to grind and can be obtained in hardness between 35 and 60 shore A. "But Monkal would not be half as good without the special vertical casting process that guarantees homogeneity throughout. Nothing pleases a coil, can or sheet coater more than the comforting certainty of consistent quality," the company said. Hannecard-Kalker provides a multitude of products for the metal packaging ( steel and aluminium) industry. These include rubber and polyurethane covering for all sheet pre-coating applications and machine type; special multi-layer EPDM blankets in 30 and 40 shore A for sheet coating; easy-to-mount magnetic blankets for coating and a patented Handy-Coat concept that is considered unique for can coating with wheels. "Being coating specialists, we no longer need to establish a reputation," the company says. "Our know-how applies to all coating domains in the metals industry: continuous coil coating on steel, aluminium, zinc and copper strip (paint, varnish varnish, homogeneous solution of gum or of natural or synthetic resins in oil (oil varnish) or in a volatile solvent (spirit varnish), which dries on exposure to air, forming a thin, hard, usually glossy film. , weldable primers etc) continuous varnishing var·nish

In the latter case, where the covered inking roller is running against an anilox roller, the outperforming mechanical performance of a PU covering versus a traditional rubber covering results in extremely long service time and excellent inking capabilities, Hannecard highlighted.
