Fasipol, crisis-proof polyurethane
The Sorbara-based company, working in the plastics sector, challenges the recession with patents and new projects.
«From 1974 to today, we have produced items mainly as external commissions. In the future, as well as satisfying our clients’ needs, we would also like to be known for autonomous design and production».
The change of pace for Fasipol, the Sorbara-based company that specialises in the moulding of polyurethanes, is reflected in the words of founder Erio Sacchetti and clearly demonstrated with the “Design for safety” programme.
«It is our anti-crisis recipe», confirms Sacchetti, «our response to so-called market and product innovation».
The project is developed in two phases. The first involves the designing of products aimed at improving road safety. «Fasipol’s technical office, led by Roberto Reggiani, has patented Polsafe», explains Sacchetti, «a system to protect the metallic elements at the rear of guardrails. To have an idea of its application, consider the San Pancrazio cycle and pedestrian path. The cycle path, recently highlighted by the media for its dangerousness, has been improved thanks to our polyurethane protections. The Polsafe protection system, covering the sharp parts of the rear of guardrails, reduces and softens the impact when a cyclist or pedestrian suffers an accidental collision».
