RTP Company Introduces New Plastic Technologies At Fakuma Show

RTP Company will feature successful applications created from its portfolio of industry-leading engineered thermoplastic compounds at the upcoming Fakuma exhibition in Friedrichshafen, Germany.

Representatives from RTP Company's facilities in Ladenburg, Germany and Beaune, France will be available at Fakuma Booth #A4-4221. Highlighted will be a new proprietary alloy technology known as RTP 2000 HC, a series of specially formulated compounds designed to maintain strength, functionality, and integrity, even with repeated exposure to hospital cleaners used to disinfect medical devices.

In developing a thermoplastic compound that could withstand harsh disinfectants, RTP Company engineers tested a number of materials and a wide sampling of cleaners commonly used in the healthcare industry. The resulting RTP 2000 HC Series compounds were developed to provide superior chemical resistance and open new possibilities for the design of hospital equipment and plastic housings that require frequent disinfection, including mobile sonar and x-ray machines, enteral feeding devices, drug pumps, blood filtration equipment, and more.

In addition, RTP Company representatives will be available to discuss a diverse selection of thermoplastic compounds, including:

  • New RTP 100 eXtra Performance (XP) polypropylene compounds, formulated for higher strength, modulus, and impact properties
  • Solvay's Radel R-7000 polyphenylsulfone (PPSU) resins for aircraft interiors now available through RTP Company
  • Low emission Very Long Fibre reinforced Polypropylene for use in automotive interiors
  • Flame retardant plastics for low smoke, heat and flame spread applications

RTP Company welcomes Fakuma attendees to visit Booth A4-4221 from October 13-17, 2015 to discuss these and other relevant topics.
