Nordson’s new plasticising system for compounds with high levels of glass fibre reinforcement is said to provide wear resistance, high throughput and gentle mixing, enabling injection moulders to enhance productivity and part quality.
To be introduced at Fakuma 2017, the Xaloy High Glass Filled Polymer System is designed for injection moulding a wide range of resins with filler content of 10-60%. Applications include automotive, marine, electronic and other parts that require very high levels of strength and stiffness.
Components in the Xaloy package system include:
“Wear resistance is only one of the requirements for successfully processing the highly filled compounds called for in metal replacement and other high-performance applications,” says Mark Colella, Global Product Manager for Nordson’s Xaloy brand. “Our new Xaloy plasticising system enables moulders to overcome the challenges to productivity and part quality posed by today’s increasingly higher loadings of glass fibre reinforcement.”
