    Lanxess  will be presenting a broad portfolio at k2019. On its 700 square metre stand, the specialty chemicals company will focus on mobility, urbanisation and digitalisation .

    Management board member Hubert Fink said: “Innovative mobility solutions and modern urban concepts are currently being developed worldwide. These are important growth areas for us and our customers. We are constantly developing sustainable material solutions and technologies for this purpose, and are also focusing on new possibilities for digitalisation.”

    Six of Lanxess’s eleven business units will be showcasing their products at K 2019 in Düsseldorf.

    Polyamides and polyesters

    The High-Performance Materials (HPM) business unit will be presenting a wide range of new products relating to electric mobility. New HPM materials include orange, heat-stabilised compounds for high-voltage applications; materials that prevent electrical corrosion; and halogen-free, flame-retardant materials. In terms of lightweight design, Lanxess is working primarily on hollow-profile hybrid technology and thermoplastic composites under the Tepex brand.

    New compounds for cost-effective blow moulding of components for air management in turbo-charged combustion engines will also be on display, as will connectors and switches in state-of-the-art smart home systems. The polyamide 6 compound named Durethan BG60XXF is ideal for such applications. A very low-warpage plastic, its uses include switch holders in electronic components.

    The Urethane Systems business unit, one of the world’s leading providers of PU prepolymers tailored to specific customers and applications and used for elastomers, coatings, adhesives and sealants, will be focusing on its low free (LF) technology at K.

    Used to formulate PU prepolymers that contain less than 0.1 per cent by weight of free isocyanate and fulfil strict hygiene requirements, these Adiprene LF prepolymers are not affected by forthcoming EU-wide restrictions on diisocyanates.

    The Polymer Additives business unit (PLA) will be presenting two flame retardants for rigid polyisocyanurate (PIR) foam that have achieved exceptional results in fire tests in line with ISO 11925-2 – the oligomeric Levagard 2000 and the reactive Levagard 2100.

    Lanxess is aiming to make even better use of the benefits of digital technologies, with digital business models, the introduction of new technologies, and the analysis and use of large amounts of data. In collaboration with Citrine Informatics, Lanxess is employing AI to optimise formulations for glass-fibre sizings used to reinforce plastics

    Lanxess is committed to establishing closed-loop material cycles in the manufacture and application of plastics through further collaborations with customers and own buyers on field-based pilot projects.

  • New PA6 compounds outperform standard predecessors

     

    New PA6 compounds outperform standard predecessors

    polymer & packaging news agency - www.ppna.ir

    Creamid P Series PA6 compounds absorb nearly one-third less water at saturation than standard grades, provide 15-25% improved tensile properties in the conditioned state, and exhibit higher flow and excellent surface characteristics, even in highly glass-filled formulations, according to Teknor Apex, who will introduce the compounds at K 2019.

    The Creamid P series is the newest product family of higher performance specialty polyamide compounds designed by Teknor Apex for structural components in metal replacement applications. The compounds are based on advanced formulation technology that Teknor Apex can be applied to lower the moisture uptake of a broad range of polyamide 6- and 6/66-based compounds. These include grades with various types and loadings of reinforcements or fillers, as well as impact-modified toughened grades and other specialty compounds. Creamid P Series compounds can further employ an advanced heat stabilisation system that extends continuous use temperature.

    At K 2019 the company will introduce the first two Creamid P compounds with 30 per cent and 50 per cent glass fibre content. Dry as moulded, these compounds exhibit about 80 per cent reduction in water uptake after 24 hours as compared to standard PA 6, and about 30% per cent lower upon saturation.

    In the conditioned state these new grades, Creamid P2H7G6 and Creamid P3H2G10, exhibit higher tensile elastic modulus and strength at break.   

    Markus Krippner, Director of New Business Development ETP, said: “The improved tensile properties of Creamid P compounds enable them to meet the demands of certain structural applications where, traditionally, PA 6 compounds did not perform due to high moisture uptake. In some cases, they may provide a practical alternative to polyamide 66 compounds as well.”

    In spiral flow tests, the new compounds exhibit higher flow than comparable grades of standard PA 6 yet similar levels of mould shrinkage, enabling them to be processed with existing equipment and tooling. 

    Creamid P compounds are available globally. Several standard grades are available, but as a custom compounder, Teknor Apex works closely with each client to develop a material that meets their specific end-use requirements.

    Victrex, a UK-based leader in high-performance PEEK and PAEK polymer solutions, has achieved a new milestone for its automotive offerings.

    Its gear design and manufacturing facility in Grantsburg, US, has received the IATF 16949 certification, proving that the necessary systems and capabilities are in place.

    At the international K 2019 tradeshow in Düsseldorf, Germany, gear solutions will also be one focus at the Victrex booth (Hall 5, Booth B09).

    Since 2015 Victrex has extended its material expertise to the design, development and manufacture of gears to offer a fully integrated and highly innovative approach to thermoplastic PEEK gear solutiond. . Enabling Tier 1/OEM customers to work with one partner from concept to commercialisation, the company supports the development and testing of high-precision VICTREX HPG-based gears, as well as manufacturing these gears as a component for integration into larger systems, e.g. within the engine, transmission, pump, actuator and chassis.

    Automotive Director at Victrex Andy Walton said: “Attaining this certification was a major goal for us. It unequivocally demonstrates that Victrex has the quality systems and capability to supply turnkey PEEK gear solutions into the mainstream Tier1/OEM supply chain. A major European car manufacturer has already taken advantage of our gear design approach, as our ability to look at the whole system, not just the gear was invaluable. We are also working on numerous other programmes with global OEMs in other geographies, including the US.”

    At K 2019 performance, power and progress will take centre stage at the Victrex booth, where several meet-the-expert sessions are scheduled.

    At the upcoming K 2019 show Victrex, a world-leader in high-performance polymer solutions, will be showcasing its recent solutions under the theme ‘The Element of Invention’.

    Complementing the many pioneering innovations that followed the invention of PEEK thermoplastic over 40 years ago, the VICTREX PEEK and PAEK polymer-based portfolio on display will include innovative food grade, additive manufacturing, composite, film and gear solutions.

    Ranging across leading industrial sectors, these products and the knowhow of Victrex contribute to solving material limitations in advanced applications, often replacing metals.

    Victrex CEO Jakob Sigurdsson said: “The invention of PEEK polymer has clearly had a very positive impact across industries and, in fact, across the globe. We could never have imagined the continuous stream of innovation this high-performing versatile polymer would make possible. Visitors to the Victrex K 2019 show stand can look forward to pioneering new grades as well as exciting progress on forms and parts in critical applications where high-performance polymers deliver a strong advantage in the development of new markets.”

    Victrex will also showcase new PAEK materials, including products developed for use in 3D printing: filament for filament fusion  (FF) or fine powder for laser sintering (LS). These new solutions deliver better results with improved mechanical properties in printed parts and easier printing than past attempts.

    To speed the availability of 3D-printed PAEK parts, Victrex is investing in these new materials optimised for AM and pairing them with new machine technology in order to create integrated solutions.

    The company is working directly with key industry partners and customers to build an AM PAEK eco-system.
