Now birds' hearts are beating faster
22 Ottobre 2007
The construction kit for the bird nesting boxes supplied by the Dutch company Wilnest is a clever application of the BASF plastic Luran© S (ASA), a styrene-acrylonitrile copolymer impact
modified with acrylic rubber. The double-walled and hence well insulated plastic structure consists almost completely of the lightweight and weather-resistant material. This BASF plastic from
the PlasticsPlusT? family is especially suitable for outdoor applications. Luc Gysels, Market Developer Styrenic Specialty Polymers at BASF, stresses the high chemical resistance, impact
strength and UV resistance of the material. No woodpecker or squirrel can harm this robust material. The smooth surface of Luran S also prevents the chicks from leaving the nest too soon and
increases their survival prospects. If required the nesting box can be converted to a feeding place. The boxes are injection molded at AKG Mouldings Vroomshoop, the Netherlands.
