    We produce almost everything in-house and ship to more than 50 countries, which means we are uniquely positioned to offer fast and cost-effective production and delivery.

  • Value-added production

    Whether you have a pre-existing design or develop one with us, we deliver the best in precision manufacturing, assembly, finishing, and more

  • Commitment to relationships

    For over 30 years, we have been building steadfast partnerships with companies that trust us to deliver quality solutions time and time again.

  • Diversity of solutions

     

    Complex challenges call for creative solutions. With our diverse experience and capabilities, we are your comprehensive resource, no matter what your needs may be.

  • Long-term product support

    We support you and the product throughout a robust lifecycle management process, from concept development and production to service and recovery.

  • Highly innovative and creative organization

    Allplast is always seeking innovation and improvement. We are solution-oriented, both in process and in product.

  • Broadly Oriented

    Our products are focused on both plastics and bullet resistance and ballistic protection.

  • Distinguished

    Allplast can accomplish the entire production process, from design to the end product. Allplast not only develops bullet-resistant and intrusion-resistant laminates but also products focused on personal (ballistic) protection.

  • Short communication lines

    By handling everything in-house, the communication lines are short and efficient. Allplast is capable of taking quick action.

  • Plastic bending

    Using so-called heating tables, small sections of materials like Acrylic are heated, making the material pliable and allowing it to be bent. The maximum width is 2,300mm. On the corresponding bending table, the material can be bent at the correct angle and secured, so that after cooling, the material retains the desired shape. Multiple bends can be made in a single operation.

  • Cold forming of plastic

    This is applied to polycarbonate. It can be used to manufacture, for example, machine covers. The maximum size is 2,500mm, and the maximum pressure is 83 tons. In essence, this machine cold-bends the material and converts it into the desired angle.

  • Plastic Milling

    For milling plastic, a CNC mill is used. This is a machine with a flat table equipped with a strong vacuum. The table can be divided, for example, into two work halves. On one side, a sheet is placed, while milling is done on the other side. With the available software, it is possible to efficiently mill various dimensions and shapes from a large sheet (nesting module). Tolerances are plus or minus 0.1 mm in length and width. The small upper and lower mills are used for small milling tasks, edge breaking, rounding corners, etc.

  • Drilling of plastic

    Using a radial drill, it is possible, among other things, to drill and tap.

  • Plastic Bonding

    Bonding or adhering plastic sheet material is one of our core activities. This can involve the use of contact adhesives, 1K, or 2K adhesives. Allplast excels in bonding plastic units/components to over 60,000 units per year on a customer level. To support our bonding work, we have two ovens available: a conveyor belt oven at 35°C and a vacuum oven up to 90°C.

  • Polishing / flame polishing of plastic

    In this process, imperfections on cut and milled edges are "melted closed." This method results in a beautifully glossy and clear surface. It is the only way to polish round shapes and inner contours.

  • Diamond Polishing of Plastic

    In this process, a diamond mill removes a layer of approximately 0.5mm, creating a very clear and beautifully polished surface. It can polish materials up to a maximum thickness of about 20mm. This technique is only applicable to materials with straight sides. The included stand and the so-called continuous system provide the ability to polish the sides of long sheets.

  • Cutting Plastic

    Cutting plastic is done using a panel saw with dimensions of 4,200 x 4,200mm. The maximum cutting thickness is 90mm. The saw is equipped with a roller conveyor to prevent scratching of the sheets. Additionally, the saw is equipped with a dust extraction system to minimize dust on the sheets. Tolerances: -0.2mm and +0.2mm.

  • Laminating Plastic

    Allplast develops and manufactures anti-ballistic glazing/laminates made from PC/PMMA (and glass). These products are used as (personal) safety materials, including bulletproof visors and shields or impact-resistant safety glass. Allplast uses two autoclaves for this production, with capacities of 4,500m3 and 22,000m3. They produce for both the private sector and the government (defense).

  • Carbon composites

    Carbon, also known as carbon fiber, has three key properties:

    • Lightweight
    • Stiff
    • Strong material

    The material is renowned for high-tech applications in aviation and motorsports. Carbon fiber is increasingly used due to the impressive mechanical properties of this material. Allplast has extensive experience in processing carbon fiber prepregs. In this process, the resin content and resin type are optimized for the specific application. In our autoclave, the composite is processed into the final product under high pressure and temperature.

  • Thermoplastic Composites

    Composite materials based on easily processable/reusable thermoplastic plastics. These materials are highly appealing due to the unique ballistic properties (bullet resistance) of this material. These materials are processed in our autoclave to create lightweight ballistic protection products, such as shields, body armor, bulletproof vests, and ballistic inserts.

  • Aramid

    A highly strong and rigid material that is also highly resistant to high temperatures. Aramid is used in various applications, including ballistic protection, due to its unique fiber properties. At Allplast, we also process this material in prepreg form for specific applications. Additionally, we combine this material with carbon fiber and glass fiber composites, among other things, to tailor the mechanical properties of the final material.

  • Fiberglass

    Fiberglass is a well-known composite material. This material is suitable for many applications and highly cost-effective. Fiberglass is also processed in prepreg form by us. Our material suppliers can provide various products, allowing us to offer a solution for almost any design problem.
