ContiTech's new ECO2 compound is also lead-free, in response to the European Union's REACH regulation, as lead oxide is suspected of being harmful to health. This makes it a candidate for the hazardous chemical substances black list. The new and improved ECO2 air actuators are now part of ContiTech's product range and are available for almost all the models in the C, D, and R series. Further product development remains a possibility.
Solutions for demanding industry sectors
ContiTech has also adapted the air actuators' connections in order to meet the specific requirements of particularly sensitive industry sectors. The air actuator models 40 to 530 in the C series now also come with stainless steel plates that are resistant to most acids. Instead of the widely used V2A stainless steel, ContiTech uses high-grade, acid-resistant V4A stainless steel. An additional alloy means that the material is even more resistant to corrosion, especially when exposed to chemicals and environments containing chloride.
