Use of a proprietary polymeric alloy results in a lower specific gravity for these new wear and friction compounds.
An industry gathering sponsored by NatureWorks is a forum for materials, additives, and processing advances.
A new conference brings together the leaders in this emerging field of technology.
Find out at a brand-new conference this June in Novi, Mich.
RTP Co., Winona, Minn., has introduced the Ultra Performance Structural Compounds series to its portfolio of high-temperature structural compounds.
Two innovations in medical tubing and more than a dozen new materials, coatings, and adhesives were on display at June’s Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) East show in Philadelphia.
WEB EXCLUSIVE: A laser-markable, glass-reinforced ABS was customized to meet tensile strength and printability requirements of an innovative cable-tie tool from HellermannTyton, Milwaukee.
WEB EXCLUSIVE: Following the success of it 30-amp SmartPlug system in marine, RV, and EMS vehicle markets, Seattle-based SmartPlug Systems decided to develop a 50-amp version of its shore power connector system.
WEB EXCLUSIVE: RTP Co., Winona, Minn., has added specialty TPEs to its line of biocompatible compounds for medical devices.
High-surface-area, sub-micron-size additives have been making significant commercial strides in thermoplastic applications, albeit generally later than had been expected just a decade ago.
WEB EXCLUSIVE: Two compounders recently launched new grades of compounds based on biopolymers or on biofiber reinforcements.
Bioplastics take center stage.
Four suppliers are bringing out higher-performance materials partly or wholly based on PLA biopolymer.

WEB EXCLUSIVE: When Leatherman Tool Group decided to introduce a new folding knife line with improved features, its customers were very clear about what they wanted.
RTP Co., Winona, Minn., has come out with a series of biocompatible styrenic-based TPEs for use in medical devices.
WEB EXCLUSIVE: When a national truck fleet approached Maxi-Seal Harness Systems of Grandview, Mo., to design a new modular wiring harness for the underside of long-haul semi-trailer trucks, Maxi-Seal saw an opportunity to deliver a new level of reliability.
The second conference on biopolymers hosted by NatureWorks testified to the burgeoning interest in this new field of plastics.
Smaller parts, a wider range of resins and reinforcements,and retrofittable molding equipment were among the news indirect-compounded long-fiber thermoplastics presented at a recent Plastics Technology conference. Extrusion and thermoforming are also new extensions of this process.
It’s not just for small parts anymore: One of the latest developments in metal-powder injection molding (MIM) is its first commercial large part—a 3.5-lb flow-body housing for a passenger jet plane.
