SHOW PREVIEW | FAKUMA 2018


Akro-Plastic will be showing the first in its new Akromid B+ PA6 family of compounds, which are intended as alternatives to PA66 materials. The first grade in the range is a 50% glass reinforced com- pound claimed to provide the same strength at 80°C as a conditioned PA66 GF50 (115 MPa breaking stress) and near the same levels of stiffness. “Our new polymer-modified PA6 grade is priced between PA66 and PA6 and thereby opens up considerable savings potential,” says Thilo Stier, Head of Innovation and Sales at the company. “We will be presenting the first components made of the new material and complemented material values such as ageing and conditioning to trade fair visitors at our stand.” The company says 30 to 50% glass fibre

reinforced Akromid B+ compounds are already available for sampling, with a grade with 60% glass fibres to follow shortly. Other novelties include a new addition to its Akromid PST range of PA compounds for adhesion to metal during overmoulding. Developed in partnership with Plasmatreat, the product line now includes a grade formulated to adhere to aluminium. “In some aluminium variants, tensile shear tests result in breakage in the aluminium and not in the adhesive surface,” says Cyprian Golebiewski, Akro-Plastic Head of Application Technology. Also new is Akromid A3 GF 30 4 L black (4678), a new hydrolysis-stabilised PA66/PP blend offering very good mechanical properties and hydrolysis resistance. The company says the proportion of PA66 is reduced in this new grade, providing an additional weight advantage. � www.akro-plastic.com

Albis Plastic will be showing a number of new introductions to its own product portfolio as well as the latest developments from prinicpals such as Covestro and BASF.


Its own novelties will be headed up by its


expanded Alco Med range of compounds for medical applications, a new addition to its Alcom Lighting range for high gloss automotive applica- tions, and new high flow additions to its Alfater XL line of TPVs. The latter “Easyflow” grades are high gloss black products available in hardnesses from Shore A50 to D40. Following its recent acquisition of Wipag, the company will also be showing an expanded range of recycled compounds. These include carbon reinforced PP grades intended to compete with glass reinforced PA as well as a new PET/PBT blend addition to its Altech Eco family. � www.albis.com


Ampacet will exhibit a number of new products aimed at improving the quality of recycled plastics in terms of odour and colour. Odor Scavenger 1000258-E is a wide spectrum odour absorbing masterbatch suitable for neutral- ising odours in post-consumer recyclates, allowing usage at higher percentages without sacrificing end-product quality. REC-O-BLACK 216 is a


black masterbatch produced from carbon black pigment recovered from post-consumer recycling of rubber products such as tyres in a PCR PE carrier resin. Blue Edge 78 (7600078-E) masterbatch counteracts the yellow/brown tint in post-consumer recycled PET, providing a lighter bluish tone that is more appealing to the customer’s eye. Ampacet will also show its Biorange master-


batches for use with compostable bioplastics and biodegradable resins. All products in the range are compatible with compostable polymers and comply with the EN 13432 composting standard. � www.ampacet.com


Ascend Performance Materials will introduce its Vydyne R433H PA66, which is designed to rein- force down-gauged steel and aluminium in vehicle body in white (BIW) structures. Vydyne R433H has improved energy absorption


over traditional glass-filled PA66, reducing noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) and absorbing impact energy from crashes, says the company. “The BIW accounts for nearly half the weight of a vehicle,” says Vikram Gopal, Ascend’s Senior Vice President of Technology.


Ascend will also highlight its new manufacturing


facility at Tilburg, in the Netherlands. The acquisi- tion of the Britannia Techno Polymer compounding operation this summer gave Ascend its first
