A sustainable coating for sustainable mobility
Thanks to GBneuhaus technology wallboxes made by ABL, which are used to charge electric vehicles, are protected against damages caused by mechanical influences and sunlight in the long term.
ABL trusts on GBprotect plastics - our UV-protection- and anti-scratch-coating - for a long time. The company from Lauf an der Pegnitz produces wallboxes and charging stations for private, semi-public and public use. ABL eMobility-products follow up on the technological tradition of the company. Founder Albert Büttner invented the SCHUKO-plug in 1925 which is todays most common standard for electric plug devices worldwide. With smart eMobility-solutions ABL continues this successful story and defines new standards by raising user-friendly charging infrastructure. The 3D front of the wallbox is made of translucent polycarbonate by injection molding. In opposite to 2D blanks, which are coated ex works, molded parts are unprotected and prone to scratches.
Thus ABL was searching for a individual coating solution matched to the gloss front of the wallbox which guarantees protection against scratches in the long term. Our UV-protection- and anti-scratch-coating GBprotect plastics offers optimal protection for the noble looking surface of ABL wallboxes. Coating polycarbonate is a simple task for us even if the wallbox has high optical requirements. Thanks to our powerful R&D department we quickly found an individual solution which is matched perfectly with the wallbox and guarantees an effective protection againgst damages caused by mechanical influences or sunlight while optical and haptic properties are retained.
Peter Müller, head of R&D housing department at ABL rates the cooperation very positively: „ABL fulfills highest quality standards with its products. That also includes a protection of high gloss surfaces at charging stations with regard on scratch- and media-resistance. GBneuhaus nano coating technology offers an optimal protection in this case."
