As a supplier of high-performance resins and plastic compounds, the company will reveal its commitment to develop new, cost-effective technologies and solutions and the products on display are as follows. Schuladur polyester compounds and Reinforced Schulamid nylon compounds are used as alternative to metals.
A. Schulman will feature innovative products used for polymeric surface modification associated with antistat effect, coefficient of friction, antibacterial effect and matte appearance. In addition, advanced additives for biaxially-oriented polypropylene (BOPP) applications like high cavitation agents and new silicon grades are also displayed. Other products on display include high-technology masterbatches, rotational molding powders, Schulablend M/MK, Schulamid 612 compounds and density-reduced materials.
A. Schulman offers masterbatches for light filtering, antifogging effect and UV absorption. Schulablend M/MK is an ABS/PA blend with excellent UV-stability used for surface improvements to eliminate painting. Schulamid 612 compounds from the company are ideal for chemical-resistant application and use at high heat-deflection temperatures.
The company will also exhibit its full range of products and its advanced thermoplastics capabilities and expertise resulting from the acquisitions of Mash Compostos Plasticos and ICO Polymers.
