In the early Seventies, Omniafiltra developed one of the first boards for insecticide impregnation in Europe. From that time onwards, its authority in this field has gradually been consolidated, becoming an important reference point in this field, in particular as far as quality is concerned. This experience allowed us to steadily increase our know how, from the selection of fibres and other additives to the choice of suppliers, from process control to constant monitoring of the quality features. Such skills have allowed us from year to year to comply with the most varied quality and cost saving requirements.
The impregnation boards sector has always contributed to a considerable part of the company's sales proceeds. Investments have been made, over the decades, in order to keep our facilities up-to-date with the more and more demanding market requirements. Thanks to the flexibility of our equipment, we could either take advantage of the unexpensiveness of the Fourndrinier wire, or of the particularity of the cylinder machine, for the most demanding quality requirements even in the higher grammages.
Since we now dispose of production plants in Europe and the USA, we intend to give worldwide technical
Every year, the requirements of some particular market brought about the development of new products that, standardised by now, could meet the particular requests of many of our customers. This does not oblige our customers to place considerable individual orders: thanks to our spacious warehouse and large clientele, we can easily insert the customer's requests among our orders in process even in case of small production lots, in order to quickly deal with their requests.
Our willingness to accept the most varied requests of our customers in the most different industrial applications has considerably stimulated our creativity over the past few years. We have made experiments on various, now consolidated as technologically advanced products (such as 14 SG) and at the extreme limits of the paper processing capacity (for instance, our 15 V MAX: thickness almost 6 mm and 2000gr/sqm).
The particular structure of our plants makes it possible to comply with the most important quality features required on the market:
A) A homogeneous surface on both sides, which gives a better appearance to the finished product.
B) Manufacturing on cylinders allows a more homogeneous fibre distribution in the internal sheet structure, resulting in a better liquid absorption and a more controlled output.
C) The particular structure of the process allows a considerable product bulk (low density). This supports the absorption capacity and competitiveness of the product (lower cost per sqm).
