In July we reported on new colorants and additives to be shown at NPE in Chicago, based on information available before the show (see Learn More box). But the miles of aisles at McCormick Place held still more newsworthy product introductions.
Colorants were the most numerous class of additives making news at the huge triennial plastics exhibition last month in Chicago. Some of the new colorants were aimed at specialized applications, from natural-fiber composites to laser marking, while others were for aesthetic special effects, such as color shifts and diamond-like sparkle.
Americhem Inc., Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, has introduced what it says are the smallest color and additive minipellets ever.
A translucent capstock of an acrylic/ASA alloy with streaks of coloring coextruded over foamed wood-fi lled ABS profi les gives them depth of color like wood grain.
Four compounders are adding capacity: Infi nity Compounding, Logan Township, N.J., a two-year-old compounder of engineering thermoplastics, recently installed its third compounding line.
