Rotuba exited the sheet business to focus on custom profiles for LED light fixtures. It now ranks as North America’s leading profile extruder in this burgeoning market.
Rapid expansion of LED technology has spurred development of new formulations for a wide range of lighting components. Here are examples of activity in this fast-moving field.
Aiming to expand further in LED technology, Evonik teams up with global optical elements supplier.
Evonik has invested in a start-up company that has developed a high-tech leg-lengthening implant that uses Vestakeep PEEK.
Evonik's new PPA is aimed at high-end LEDs found in headlamps, flat-screen TVs and moveable lens module units for smartphones.
New pipelines feature inner plastic pipe covered with a composite of unidirectional tapes which are then sheathed by the plastic--HDPE, PP, nylon 12, and PEEK can be used.
With its Plexiglas observation dome, the Lula1000 submarine is discovering numerous previously unknown species.
Evonik's new black-colored nylon 12 meets stringent requirements for fire protection for cable and conduits of railway cars and more.
At recent Plastec West show, material suppliers introduced grades that can withstand more and more varied sterilizations and/or materials that utilize specialty additives to impart antimicrobial properties.
More economical, higher performing, sustainable, and more finely tailored to specific applications—those features summarize the key advantages claimed for new additives showcased at K 2013.
Among the host of new additives at K 2007 were a number of unusual entries: additives to add scratch resistance or reduce odor, leaps ahead in PP clarifying, specialized antioxidant protection for nanocomposites, a growth enhancer for greenhouse films, and a naturally free-flowing TiO2. In addition, “Green” was the theme of exhibits that highlighted “all-natural” additives for biopolymers, and colors to enliven recycled resins.
Molders, extruders, and compounders found a host of new additives, including colorants, compatibilizers, impact modifiers, foaming agents, and processing aids.
