Domo Chemical Focuses on U.S. Market with its Engineered Thermoplastic Compounds, Films
Domo’s engineered nylon compounds are for automotive, oil & gas, sports & leisure, consumer goods and industrial applications.
German engineering thermoplastics compounder Domo Chemicals made its U.S. debut at NPE2108, highlighting its year-old operation in Buford, Ga., called Domo Engineering Plastics, where the company compounds engineering thermoplastics for automotive, oil & gas, sports & leisure, consumer goods and industrial applications. Products highlighted include Domamid nylon 6 and 66 compounds developed for high fluidity, stiffness and aesthetic appeal; Econamid nylon 6 and 66 based on environmentally sustainable feedstock; and Thermec nylon compounds with enhanced performance at high temperatures. The newest additions for the NAFTA region are Domamid H22, an ultra-low-viscosity nylon for injection molding highly filled compounds and long-glass fibers; and Domamid H33, H36 and H40 high-viscosity series for extrusion, available in either pure or in finished versions (lubricated or lubricated/nucleated).
New materials and processes for injection and blow molding, extrusion, compounding, and thermoforming were discussed at the recent SPE Polyolefins Conference.
Reversal of some factors driving prices up could change the trajectory in the second or third quarter.
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.
