In addition to continuous research of more performing and innovative materials, the internation production capacity is continuously expanding to keep under control all the production process stages with the best technologies available. For this purpose, the surface treatments department extends to reach the dimension of 500 sq.mt, where PFTE semipermanent coating are made inside the company with trademark TIMOFILM® which keep unchanged the approvals of the materials and speed up the automatic use during assembling, reducing friction.
