Blachford team set to unveil latest enhancements in acoustic barrier technology at IVT Expo 2019

The Blachford UK team is all set to greet thousands of visitors at the IVT Expo 2019 being held at Koln Messe in Cologne, Germany, from 13 – 14 February 2019.

Organised by Industrial Vehicle Technology magazine, this is the first international exhibition to bring together the industrial vehicle industry and showcases the latest and next-generation components and technologies all under one roof.

Located on stand 3010, the Blachford UK team will be unveiling a number of new technologies in polyurethane and elastomer acoustic barrier technology at the show.

Developed in-house by Blachford’s own chemist Dr Ken Kendall, five brand new acoustic and thermal applications for industrial vehicles will be showcased at the Expo by Blachford, including:

  • Anti-scratch floor mats
  • Two colour floor mats
  • Polyethylene film floor mat protector
  • Embedding of electronics
  • Lightweight foam floormats for fork lift trucks

Jason Lippit, Managing Director of Blachford UK will be attending IVT Expo with Blachford’s Sales Director and Technical Directors, Patrick Thompson and Dr Ken Kendall respectively.

Jason commented: “As a leading UK designer, engineer and manufacturer of acoustic components for industrial and agricultural vehicles, we are delighted to bring these new technologies to the IVT Expo. The applications have all been developed following feedback from the customers of vehicle manufacturers. We are confident our latest floor mat enhancements will add value to vehicles.”

Alongside the new floor mat technologies being unveiled at the Expo, Blachford will be showcasing its full range of polyurethane and acoustic products.

Jason explained: “Although there are no full vehicles allowed at the show, we have developed our own display frame to show the range of solutions we produce at Blachford which are designed to deliver the best possible cab acoustic performance.”
