Short Summary
A French company designs and folds polymer’s pipes. These pipes are made of polypropylene. Manufacturers and suppliers of large diameters and thin pipes thickness are sought out for a long-term partnership.
Full Description
A French company specializes in the design and manufacture of polymer-folded products.
This folding is a real key asset allowing innovative functionalities to the processed tube.
The tube could so be used in aeronautic industry, automotive industry, and many other industrial applications as a protection around parts or as functional pipe.
The folded tube is revolutionizing industrial standards by significantly reducing the weight and size of the products.

To produce these tubes, the French company looks for tubes combining a large diameter with a thin wall thickness.
Pipe extruders should propose tubes with:
Diameter: ranging from 150 mm to 300 mm
Thickness: from 0,5 to 1,5 mm
Composition: PP (Polypropylene)
Quantity: 10 km/tube/year, all diameters included.

The pipes could be proposed in a 2 to 3 m length straight.

The French company targets a long-term supplying and manufacturing agreement with a pipe extruder.
