The TABOREN product range is an extensive portfolio of polyolefin-based materials filled with mineral and fibrous fillers. Compounds produced under this brand were originally designed for interior applications in the automotive industry. Applications for these materials, which are distinguished by their high quality and affordable prices, were subsequently found in other industrial sectors and a range of types with a wide range of uses was created.
The SILON Company has always adhered to the philosophy of an individual approach to customers and has benefited from its flexibility and willingness to provide its clients with the required technical assistance in performing what are often demanding technical assignments.
TABOREN materials offer customers a balanced price-performance ratio. They are suitable for both injection technologies and extrusion and blow moulding applications, and their excellent processing properties go hand in hand with balanced mechanical characteristics, which can be improved by the addition of a number of stabilising components, which contribute even greater added value to these compounds.
Thanks to a wide range of fillers, modifiers, stabilisation additives and other additives, TABOREN can be found in many modern products in the automotive, construction and consumer industries.
Chemical properties and attributes
Our compounds are based on a range of polyolefin matrices, which can be further modified using various elastomers. The most frequently used types of filler are talc, glass fibres, lime and baryte. However, basalt, mica, wollastonite and various combinations of the aforementioned fillers can also be used.
The various types of stabilising components allow our customers to use TABOREN in a wide range of applications (interior and exterior). Applications requiring high temperature resistance, UV stability and also non-flammability or anti-static properties and resistance to washing products, etc., are very common. Thanks to the careful selection of high-quality raw materials and high production standards, we are also able to supply materials that are suitable for contact with foods or drinking water.
TABOREN materials offer high quality at affordable prices and are distinguished by
- being very easy to process and colour
- their balanced rigidity and stability on impact
- their excellent recyclability
AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY AND TRANSPORT
We mainly supply the automotive industry with materials filled with talc and glass fibres. These are additionally stabilised depending on the given application.
A significant part of our product portfolio meets the requirements of the automotive industry and these products are used by manufacturers of well-known marques. One can find visible and hidden plastic parts made from our products in the interior and exterior of vehicles, and these products strengthen their position on this market every year.
Examples of use:
- drainage channel under the windscreen
- device holders
- locking mechanisms
- window control systems
- seat parts
- ventilation system components
CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY AND INFRASTRUCTURE
We make a range of materials based on PPH, PPC, PPR and PP/PE, filled with all the standard types of fillers, for the construction industry – from wastewater pipes to pressurised pipes and air-permeable sheeting. We make compounds mainly for processing by extrusion, which we are capable of producing with specific properties, such as the ability to insulate against noise, good air-permeability, or a combination of the flexibility in the flexion module and high rigidity and resilience. We are able to use a combination of the required stabilisers and additives to ensure improved resistance to high temperatures, UV light and heat (halogenated, HFFR). With regard to their greater resistance to weather changes, the effects of ozone and good colour stability, our products are also suitable for exterior use. Read more about construction
Examples of use:
- middle pipeline layer – sound insulation for wastepipes in tall buildings
- middle pipeline layer – reinforcement of PPR pressurised pipes for drinking water
- extruded profiles for the cooling towers of power generation plants
- covers for fuse boxes, socket components
- vapour-permeable sheeting for under-roof applications
- industrial ventilator blades
Due to the good processing properties and the quality of our highly filled materials, we are also a suitable supplier for the production of hygienic sheeting. Our LLDPE compounds are ideal for extrusion of air-permeable sheeting intended for making disposable hygienic products.
Examples of use:
- air-permeable sheeting for children’s nappies
- air-permeable sheeting for protective clothing
We always strive to provide assistance and be innovative when dealing with the individual tasks assigned to us by customers from other industrial sectors. There are many anonymous technical uses for our TABOREN materials in the processing industry which are part of a larger mechanism, but which are also of significance. We supply unique combinations of materials for a wide range of uses.
Examples of use:
- household appliances
- office furniture
