The ceramics market calls for increasingly large slabs of reduced thickness for a variety of different applications.
Therefore, it becomes especially important to reinforce their structure, to prevent both possible collapses and dangerous detachments of fragments.
To meet this need, Breton has developed an innovative line to glue mats with epoxy resin.
To bond the mat correctly to the surface the process must provide for uniform application of polyurethane resin, placement of the mat on the resin coated surface and, finally, pressing of the mat onto the slab.
The line performs the complete processing cycle, from slabs loading to unloading, without human intervention.
Multiple work table cleaning phases
To further enhance the quality of the reinforcing treatment and ensure the highest standards, the process includes multiple work table cleaning phases: from brushing when out of the oven to the application of a protective film that preservers the lower surface of the slabs while moved on the conveyor.
