BYK will present its complete portfolio of high-performance additives for plastics, including its solutions for composites, at Fakuma 2018 on 16-20 October in Friedrichshafen, Germany.
At Booth 2208, Hall B2, BYK will showcase products from the SCONA series designed to optimise the use of carbon fibres. These are suitable, among other applications, for lightweight materials that the automotive industry uses for high-quality vehicle bodies.
BYK also offers numerous formulations for technical plastics based on thermoplastics. These include easy-to-use multi-component solutions that improve the dispersion and processing of liquid additives. These formulations are based on unique process technologies, including special co-extrusion and compaction processes, thus allowing for higher overall additive concentrations.
A new wetting and dispersing additive will also be presented. DISPERPLAST-1180 has been developed for highly-filled systems where conventional process additives and standard wetting and dispersing additives are limited.
Angel Trains, one of Britain’s leading train leasing companies, has collaborated with engineering consultancy ESG Rail, and 3D printing technology provider Stratasys, to produce four fully approved interior components using 3D printing, also known as Additive Manufacturing.
The Department of Lightweight Design and Structural Materials (LsW) at Brandenburg University of Technology (BTU) Cottbus has received a brand-new AFP system from Mikrosam.
Composite products, based on polyurethane technologies from global chemical company Huntsman, are taking centre stage at a design exhibition at the Design Museum Gent, Belgium.
