Premix Thermoplastics has introduced a line of conductive and static dissipative compounds based on copolymer polyacetal (POM), available with or without fibreglass reinforcement.
Their PRE-ELEC 12-000 conductive (<1x10e5 ohm) compounds are based on copolymer polyacetal with carbon black or carbon fibre additives. They are said to be suitable for applications such as automotive fuel systems, gears and similar components where good toughness, wear and chemical resistance are important.
PRE-ELEC 12-031 conductive compounds can be coloured for coding if desired without affecting the electrical properties of the compound. These compounds are useful where the added stiffness of carbon fibres is desirable. PRE-ELEC ESD 12-000 static dissipative (1x10e9 to 1x10e11 ohm) compounds are colourable alloys of copolymer polyacetal and inherently dissipative polymers.
Kordsa, operating in tire, construction reinforcement and composites technologies market with its mission ‘We Reinforce Life’, has launched a new campaign with the slogan ‘Inspired from life, we reinforce life’.
Dura Composites has expanded its Dura Deck range to include Dura Deck Resist, a co-extruded decking board with an innovative 360 degree outer angle which protects its core from the elements, as well as a new and improved Dura Deck Eco.
The University of Southern Queensland (USQ) has partnered with Composites Australia to provide Australian civil and composite engineers with access to the latest knowledge on an innovative reinforcing solution to the costly corrosion of concrete infrastructure.
