SHOW PREVIEW | FAKUMA 2018


Right:


Automotive compounds feature heavily among Polykemi’s latest


developments


OCSiAl will display its Tuball single wall carbon nanotubes, which can enhance the electrical conductivity, thermal resistance and flexibility of thermoplastics such as PE, PA, PC, ABS and PVC plastisols. The company says the products, which have a diameter of 1.6nm and measure more than 5 microns in length, are being produced on an industrial scale and are already being used in commercial applications. These include semi-con- ductive compounds for medium and high voltage power cables with a volume resistivity below 20 Ωcm at 23°C and below 100 Ωcm at 90°C. They are also being used in injection moulded ABS parts for a mining lamp where a surface resistivity below 108 Ω/sq is said to be achieved without sacrificing impact resistance. � www.ocsial.com


Oka-Tec will show its full range of heat stabilisers for technical plastic compounds. Okabest PAT stabilisers are particularly suitable for PP com- pounds where, in addition to extensive long-term stability, low values for volatile and condensable emissions and good odour ratings are required. The company’s Okaflex range includes organic long-term heat stabilisers that additionally improve resistance to media such as oils, lubricants, glycols, greases, electrolytes and detergents. They also offer good electrical properties. � www.oka-tec.com


Below: Piovan will display its latest blending and plant management developments


Piovan Group will show new materials blending equipment from its Piovan and FDM brands, together with its latest plant-wide control innova- tions and Aquatech cooling systems. In the materials handling area, it will present a


Piovan Quantum E graimetric batch blender with a continuous extrusion control system and FDM GDS series gravimetric dosing system designed to handle pellet, flake, regrind and powder materials.


The company will also be demonstrating the


latest versions of its Piovan Winenergy and Winfac- tory 4.0 supervision software. Winenergy, as the name implies, provides energy monitoring and in-depth analysis; Winfactory 4.0 provides plant- wide monitoring and control. It will also show an Easylink+ EL20 materials handling system with automated pipe cleaning. � www.piovan.com/en


Polykemi, which marks 50 years of compounding this year, will be presenting the latest additions to its technical and recycled compounds product lines, including previewing a new translucent non-reinforced PC for use in automotive switches and light guides.


With its €1m plant upgrade at its Ystad site now complete, the company has intensified develop- ment of its flame retardant portfolio. Its POLYfill PP HC has been extended to include flame retarded glass fibre reinforced grades with up to 25% filler content while a new glass reinforced UL94 V-0 PBT for thin wall moulding is under development. It will also show examples from its POLYfill PP


HC line. These high performance reinforced PP compounds can be used as an alternative to PA6, PA66 and PBT in some applications – it says several customers have replaced PA6 GF 30% with POLYfill PP GF5030HC. Polykemi says it is now developing a 35% glass reinforced PP HC to substitute 30% glass reinforced PA66. Benefits are said to include reduced weight, easier processing and low moisture absorption. The display will be completed with a full range


of recycled compounds, including examples from its REZYcom line which combine selected recycled and virgin material. It will show a REZYcom PC/ABS grade formulated to meet automotive finish and colour requirements and a new fire retarded
