Bending

It is important to choose the right material for the part: a sheet of paper can be folded in any way, but a length of wood will snap with minimum strain. The above drawing largely explains our common experience, which tells us that thin material will bend better than thick material: the thicker the material, the more the outer surface of the bend is deformed, and the greater the risk that it will break.

FOCUS ON NORDINE

I started out as a production operative in the powder-coating booths; the lungs of the coating line. . I’ve also worked on the line as an operator. So I know our production process from beginning to end. How would you describe a typical day? I have a schedule - get the powder supplies ready - keep a check on the spray guns, the entire machine, and then whenever the colours are changed, the booths need to be cleaned

Building maintenance

The Mirawall powder coating is especially suited to the construction industry. The quality it offers ensures a long service life over a great many years. So why bother maintaining the outer envelope of a building enhanced by our products? Paradoxically, surfaces that are sheltered get dirty quicker because they are never washed by the rain.

Protective films

Avoiding scratches during the handling & transport operations ; Avoiding scratches during the forming & assembly operations Protecting from stains and other pollutions (within workshops, on construction site etc.). To do so, the film is sufficiently resistant and adhere to the painted surface. In particular, the film is waterproof and impervious to many other liquids to avoid infiltrations.

Renovating from the outside

Energy transition law 2015-992 dated 17/08/2015 has been enacted and implemented. Among the new demands, the text focuses on building renovations, with requirements on insulation and energy performance. The economic benefits for the building industry will be significant with financial aid already allocated to the plan.

Samples

In 2015, we were asked to provide almost 3,000 samples! Textured finishes were especially popular with black 2100, grey 2600, grey 2800, 7016 and another 35 custom-developed textured and pearlescent references in demand from across Europe (20 countries) and more exotic locations.

FOCUS ON DENIS

I have a daily operations schedule to follow, starting with acceptance testing and readying raw materials for the production department, and shipping out the end products. There are three of us working two 8-hour shifts.

BIM

The result is a true reflection of reality. For instance, Mirawall range, worldwide famous for its orange peal effect and perfectly adapted to most innovative architectural projects, has been modeled while also respecting this aesthetics feature. In addition, Mirabuild range provides a perfect solution for architects who are looking for pearlescent sheens, luminous reflections and textured effects which allow to meet contemporary architecture expectations.

Without chromium

The use of carcinogens such as hexavalent chromium raises a number of thorny issues about how it is processed and workers’ safety. Is it acceptable for workers to take long-term risks with their health? Miralu and other companies have a social responsibility with regard to their employees’ health, and safety is a daily concern. Miralu is opting for technology that protects the health of its employees and the environment.

The end of Chromium VI in 2017

Every chromium VI compound is included in REACH annex XIV and therefore subject to authorisation. These compounds were not chosen at random. Only substances of very high concern (SVHC) can be included in annex XIV, at the end of a procedure laid down in the REACH regulations.
