st in compound technology, design, development, extrusion, finishing and recycling, Deceuninck continually develops innovative products to offer its customers the best in quality.
Deceuninck celebrates 80 years of its existence with 670 million euros worth of sales in 2016 through its 15 vertically integrated manufacturing units and 21 distribution centres spread across the world. Deceuninck’s Indian arm has been growing at a 30% year on year rate since the setting up of its warehouse in Chennai. Deceuninck’s vast experience in MENA, Asia and Australia has helped develop formulation which can take care of the high UV radiation in India and also the heat. As all tropical mix profiles are produced in one plant quality is assured to the customer. Tests done at SKZ Germany shows that the degradation of the impact strength after 6000 hours of exposure to UV at 12GJ/m2 was just 3.7%.Deceuninck uses Twin Extruder technology to infuse the high quality TPx mix to the external sight surface and the lower mix to the inner chamber walls. This ensures a superior exposed surface which lasts longer in harsh climatic conditions and has excellent welding strength. The company’s strategy to bring in the full range of products has paid off as local and other European companies juggle with limited range or part production and part import.
