Articles - Isothermal van body made of five-ply sandwich panels «SUPERTHERM»
The in-house production line for the SUPERTHERM five-ply sandwich panels based on Finnish technology allows OAO MPZ to manufacture isothermal car bodies providing convenient working conditions in any climatic zone.
Various frame modifications enable their mounting on all major truck models (GAZ, KAMAZ, URAL, AMUR, Mercedes) as well as on semi-trailers, cross-country vehicles, on a frame-skid for helicopter transportation.
Sandwich panel scheme:
The SUPERTHERM sandwich panels are manufactured by “dry gluing” technology in vacuum environment with application of special two-component solvent-free polyurethane Kestopur glue (KIILTO, Finland). This method entirely prevents void formation inside the panels as the case may be with pouring in of liquid polyurethane.
There are diverse types of panel thickness available: from 200 mm to 160 mm with various ply materials. The high polystyrol adhesive efficiency provides a higher strength of adhesion with the coating ply. Maximum panel dimensions: 13,000 mm x 3,500 mm.
The car body may consist of one, two or three sections divided by thermal insulating partitions. The interior layout, instrumentation and equipment are individual and custom-tailored. Internal wall coating may be of molded board or colored plastic. The body floor may be lined either with wear-resistant linoleum or sheet metal.
Bodies can be provided with internal and external lighting, intercom station, ventilation and heating systems, air conditioning and external or stand-alone power supply units, as well as with life-supporting household appliances (sink, gas stove, microwave, refrigerator, etc).
Double glass panes made of tempered safety motor glass, special glue sealing, sealed joints of body parts provide water- and dust-proofness of the car body. Window railing serves as guarding in emergency situations. To retain maximum free space, the body inside is equipped with specially designed sleeping berths, cabinets, racks, shelves and desks of various configurations.
