Polyplastics, one of the global suppliers of engineering thermoplastics jointly with TOPAS COCs will showcase the recent advancements in material technologies and products at the upcoming K 2019; with automotive and healthcare industries amongst the highlights.
Polyplastics Showcasing for Automotives
At the show, Polyplastics will discuss the recent launch of DURACON® POM grades for automotive applications to produce injection molded automotive fuel system components. A new high-flow/high-rigidity POM grade has a melt flow rate (MFR) around 14. This material suits a wide range of molding conditions (cylinder conditions, injection pressure) and is used in Europe.
Other key highlights in POM include a new grade which combines high strength with good creep and sliding properties.
Polyplastics will also focus on the latest development in DURAFIDE® PPS, DURANEX® PBT, and LAPEROS® LCP. For electric vehicle applications, the company has developed new DURANEX® PBT and DURAFIDE® PPS materials - targeted for engine peripheral parts, such power control units (PCUs) – to deliver high insulating properties, lower water absorption, and meet harsh operating conditions (-40 °C to 150 °C, up to 95% relative humidity).
TOPAS® COCs for Healthcare
Polyplastics will jointly showcase with its subsidiary TOPAS Advanced Polymers GmbH manufacturing cyclic olefin copolymers (COCs).
Polyplastics continues to see strong growth for its TOPAS® COCs which have a unique performance profile and continue to find strong appeal in the healthcare industry(drug delivery and blisters/trays) and diagnostics (POC/PCR/microfluidics). The company continues to work closely with OEMs and processors on new solutions to create next-generation products.
The unique attributes of TOPAS COC - purity, drug compatibility, transparency, biocompatibility, and dimensional stability – are finding their way into demanding, high-performance end uses. TOPAS COC resins are being employed in wearable drug delivery devices for medications, such as insulin and pain medicines.
Polyplastics will present at Hall 7A/B02 showcasing under its exhibition theme of "Your Ideas. Our Material. Success Together” at K Show which runs Oct. 16-23 in Düsseldorf, Germany. The triennial K show will provide a center stage to reinforce Polyplastics’ leading role as a leading manufacturer of polyoxymethylene (POM) and a specialist in engineering plastics.
