At the K-fair in Düsseldorf from October 24 - 31, BYK will be presenting new solutions for the plastics industry in hall 5, booth 5J42.
Odour and emissions (VOCs) of polyolefin compounds are often a concern, particularly for applications in automotive interiors. The origin of these emissions is often small amounts of volatile components that are formed during the processing of thermoplastics. To significantly reduce VOC levels and odor, BYK has developed a new type of stripping agent: BYK-P 4200. BYK-P 4200 is a granulate material, which is simply added in the compounding step (extruder). No further processing step is required.
The second highlight is BYK-P 4101: It is a polymeric process additive for improving the processing characteristics and the physical properties of filled thermoplastic compounds. The additive interacts strongly at the particle–matrix interface. BYK says that this particular interaction leads to overall improved processing conditions such as better melt flow, while at the same time important physical properties such as tensile strength, E-modulus, HDT and impact resistance are maintained or even improved. BYK-P 4101 is supplied as a powder.
At the American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA)'s third annual Infrastructure Day on 6-7 February 2018 34 ACMA members joined together to meet with over 100 Members of Congress and their staffs to advance legislation to drive investment in innovative material solutions for transportation, water and energy infrastructure.
Shoppers visiting the newly redeveloped Halls Head Central Shopping Centre will be greeted by a 3.5 m x 2.5 m core composite spiral ribbon representing the logo of one of the centre's owners.
KraussMaffei is expanding its expertise in the field of pultrusion, the process for continuously manufacturing fibre reinforced plastic (FRP) components, with the commissioning of a second pultrusion system at its TechCentre in Munich, Germany.
