Crocodile

The Crocodile® hose and cable bridge are extremely strong and durable.
The bridges are supplied with side tabs to prevent them from separating when placed together.

These foldable solid rubber bridges can be installed in seconds. The two sides are held together with a rustproof cable, so they remain resilient, even on uneven ground.

  • etc.

We provide innovative solutions for the following key functions

  • thermal and acoustic sealing (water, air, noise),
  • amortization,
  • guidance,
  • appearance parts (exterior and interior).

We use different materials together or individually to create multi-functional profiles:

  • . elastomers: hard or soft or cellular compacts, flocked or varnished,
  • . textile or steel reinforced flexible plastics, fabric finish, double-sided adhesive application,
  • . PVC,
  • . VSE,
  • . polyurethane.

We operate and develop elastomeric solutions in small and medium-sized production runs.

We offer solutions for the assembly of profiles by :

  • . clipping
  • . collage
  • . hot melt
  • . moulding
  • . etc...

In order to guarantee the tightness of complex definitions of moving parts in 3 axes (windows, doors, etc.).

Finished parts, which can include several profiles that are themselves assembled, can be produced on a one-off basis or in series. Reproducibility is guaranteed by our process capability in accordance with automotive standards.
