WINONA, MN, USA - May 30, 2006 - Find thermoplastic solutions with RTP Company in booth 7805 at NPE 2006 - the International Plastics Showcase. RTP Company, global leader in specialty compounds, will be introducing several cutting-edge technologies and product expansions at this highly anticipated event June 19-23 in Chicago, IL.
"RTP Company has invested a tremendous amount of technology this past year in developing several innovative products for our customers," said Steve Maki, Vice President of Technology at RTP Company. "A new line of PermaStat PLUS(TM) products with improved electrical performance designed to meet the ATEX (94/9/EC) directive for companies having equipment that will be operating in potentially explosive environments has been developed, as well as long fiber concentrates that will further improve the economic advantage of converting from metals to engineered thermoplastic compounds."
Maki also revealed RTP Company has expanded carbon nanotube products for static control and nanoclay compounds for improved barrier properties to meet the new fuel emission standards for recreational vehicles and lawn & garden equipment. Additional introductions at NPE include thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) that offer enhanced overmold bondability to a variety of rigid substrates, an expanded range of UniColor(TM) Universal Masterbatches, and improved high purity technology with very low levels of ionic impurities and outgassing.
Continuous innovation stems from RTP Company's nucleus of engineers, many of whom will be available at the show. There will be eight informative innovation stations, including Sheet, Conductive, Color, TPEs, Value Products, Structural, Application Development, and Multi-Technology Solutions. Each area will include data and applications that highlight RTP Company's growing strengths. Four of these focused areas, Sheet, TPE, Value Products and Color, have grown into divisions with appointed General Managers since the previous NPE in 2003.
