EMG did a terrific job in bringing together some 25 trade press members to hear preliminary news from some key players in plastic materials and additives.
Aimed at thinner and more sustainable electronic devices, the new grades boast an improved processing window.
With thermally conductive plastics rapidly growing in demand, the addition of nanodiamonds to the arsenal of thermally-conductive fillers is only welcome.
To support the consumer electronics business, DSM Engineering Plastics expands U.S. footprint.
Rising benzene prices have already impacted prices of PS and nylon 6 appears to be next.
There was no shortage of new thermoplastics and additives covering the full range of end-use applications.
Full portfolio of nylon 66 compounds now globally available through supply alliance.
As high-performance materials follow the path taken by some commodity resins, farming could replace drilling as suppliers rely more on plants than oil or gas for feedstocks.
While price increases for nylon 66 are attributed to supply contraints, those for nylon 6 are linked to upward raw material costs.
Lots of news in engineering thermoplastic compounds, TPEs, and purging agents, plus a wide range of colorants and additives.
