EPS base serving as the structure for showers with a ceramic base.
Objective: Produce highly precise, high density grey EPS panels with multiple converging surfaces for a construction accessories client to facilitate tiles installation in ceramic showers.
Design a surface on which the cement will stick with the help of mortise joints
Insure the precise moulding of high density EPS on parts with many tilted surfaces and irregular profiles
Insure the parts’ high dimensional and mechanical integrity
Insure high productivity while respecting high standards of aesthetic and dimensional quality
Insure a uniform and constant grey coloring
Ship daily large quantities of dry, compliant and individually packaged pieces
Design a modular mould able to produce precise pieces with sharps edges, converging surfaces and perfectly attached
Manufacturing a high rigidity equipment that will insure the flatness of the high density EPS surfaces
Highly efficient production by optimizing the mould’s thermodynamic efficiency, by minimizing its mass without reducing its mechanical resistance
Implementing a faultless drying, assembly and quality control process
Result: The quality and precision of the EPS parts provided the ceramic shower installers a quick and efficient solution. Polymos’ client has relied on this quality to build his reputation and therefore surpass his North American commercial forecasts.
