K 2016 Preview: Materials & Additives
Driving the wide range of new developments in engineered plastics and additives are higher performance, safety, and sustainability.
Materials at NPE: New Solutions to Enhance Processing, Performance, Sustainability & Cost
There was no shortage of new thermoplastics and additives covering the full range of end-use applications.
Why Processors Are Rediscovering Liquid Colorants
In extrusion, injection, and blow molding, liquid color is enjoying something of a renaissance. Cost is one reason, but advances in pigments, carriers, delivery systems, and innovative service programs have played a role too.
K 2013 Preview: Materials & Additives
The K 2013 show will present a broad range of engineered plastics materials, including thermoplastic composites, as well as additives. Automotive and electronic applications will be the main targets, as well as medical, packaging, lighting, and construction.
Coupling Agent for PP
A new coupling agent and compatibilizer is specially designed for natural fi bers in polypropylene.
Polar PE Wax Couples Natural Fibers in HDPE
A new highly polar metallocene PE wax grafted with maleic anhydride is designed for bonding and compatibilization of natural fibers in polyethylene composites.
K 2004 Wrap-Up on Additives: Problem-Solving Additives Tackle New and Old Challenges
The latest K show was rich in additives that can ease processing and end-use problems of thermoplastics and thermosets.
Additives (K 2001 Preview)
This year’s show will present such a large number of new polymer additives that only a few categories can be covered this month: antioxidants, halogen and non-halogen flame retardants, PVC heat stabilizers, and impact modifiers. Next month, we’ll report on new uv stabilizers, colorants, additive concentrates, lubricants, and more.
