Compound JV targets Mexico


PolySource of Kansas City in Missouri, US, and Omni Plastics of Evansville in Indiana have announced investments in Mexico City-based Resinal de Mexico as part of their plans to expand their activities in the country. Resinal de Mexico is a


major distributor of engineering polymer compounds in Mexico with warehouses in Mexico City, Queretaro, Monterrey and Laredo, particularly supplying the automotive industry. The new three-way partnership operation retains the Resinal name and continues to be led by its Director General Fernando Gonzalez. “As all three companies


look toward strong growth in Mexico, it became apparent that the best way to accomplish this growth was together as a team,” said Greg Jacobson, President & CEO of PolySource. PolySource, an applica-


tion development-based distributor, will bring technical expertise and its list of producers and compounders to the new venture while compounder Omni Plastics will contrib- ute its knowledge of technologies for compound- ing tight-tolerance engineering materials. ❙ http://polysource.net/ ❙ http://omniplastics.com/http://resinal.mx/

Polycompound expands development capacity


Swiss toll compounder Polycompound has expanded and reconfigured its develop- ment centre at Sissach with individually encapsulated facilities for trials and small-scale production. Development production capacity at the site is now said to be up to 400 tonnes/year. Polycompound has added a


new 20 L/D continuous kneader with a longer process- ing length and put its two existing kneaders in separate rooms. The investment, the firm said, makes it “the only provider on the market to cover the entire production capacity range – from small-scale at a few kilograms to hundreds of tonnes – and offer dependable scale-up


New kneader capacity at Polycompound’s plant in Switzerland


from one machine size to the next”.


All three lines can operate


simultaneously, excluding any risk of cross-contamination. Head of Sales Peter Imhof said that, as well as “extended advantages with regard to


processing design, flexibility and process reliability, this up-grade has also improved work safety and environmental compatibility. That is indispen- sable when handling nanopar- ticles, for example.” ❙ www.polycompound.ch
