Nylon 6/12 Compounds suit automotive fuel handling applications.Teknor Apex Co. Pawtucket, RI 02861
Sep 06, 2012 Chemlon® 813 CI and 830 GHI fiber-reinforced compounds, based on nylon 6/12 polymer, provide chemical resistance and minimal moisture absorption required in fuel line components for automotive industry. With 13% loading of carbon fiber, Chemlon 813 CI provides antistatic conductivity. Chemlon 830 GHI compound has 30% loading of glass fiber, promoting strength and rigidity in applications such as connectors. Finished part dimensions are acceptable in existing tooling used for nylon 12.
PVC Elastomer Compounds are suited for EV charger cable.Teknor Apex Co. Pawtucket, RI 02861
Jul 09, 2012 Intended for manufacturers of charger cable for electric vehicles (EVs), Flexalloy® 89504-90 is 90 Shore A formulation for insulation, and Flexalloy® 9610-78 is 78 Shore A formulation for jacketing. Materials respectively exhibit brittle points of -46 and -38°C and operate continuously in temperatures to 105°C. Able to be processed on standard PVC equipment, compounds are based on ultra high molecular weight PVC resin for toughness, abrasion resistance, and elastomeric resilience.
PLA Alloys perform like ETPs and provide up to 40% biocontent.Teknor Apex Co. Pawtucket, RI 02861
Jun 26, 2012 Based on alloys of polylactic acid (PLA) and engineering thermoplastics (ETPs), Terraloy® BP 70010 and 70011 compounds provide strength, stiffness, and heat distortion temperature as alternatives to polycarbonate (PC), ABS, and PC/ABS blends while respectively incorporating 40 and 36% levels of bio-based content. Compounds enable manufacturers of electronic housings and other components to incorporate bio-based content without sacrificing essential mechanical and thermal properties.
High-Flow Rigid PVC Compound is suitable for large, thin-wall parts.Teknor Apex Co. Pawtucket, RI 02861
Jun 04, 2012 As alternative to engineering thermoplastics, Apex® RM 8911 provides strength and stiffness for large products, such as appliance panels, thin-wall parts, and complex structures, with elaborate flow paths. Chemical-resistant compound produces high-gloss finish and is UL-94 recognized for applications requiring V-0 or 5 VA flammability ratings. Nominal values include specific gravity of 1.35, 83 Shore D Hardness, tensile modulus of 349,000 psi, and tensile strength of 5,570 psi.
Vinyl Compounds incorporate bio-based plasticizers.Teknor Apex Co. Pawtucket, RI 02861
Feb 21, 2012 Featuring petrochemical content of 35% or less, BioVinyl(TM) Flexible Vinyl Compounds incorporate phthalate-free DOW ECOLIBRIUM(TM) Bio-Based Plasticizers, which are manufactured using plant byproducts and can help minimize greenhouse gas emissions. Typical applications include consumer and industrial products, automotive components, certain medical devices, and certain wire and cable uses.
TPE Compounds impart non-slip surfaces to products.Teknor Apex Co. Pawtucket, RI 02861
Jan 11, 2012 Monprene® Wet Grip Series styrenic block copolymer compounds retain their rubber-like traction when wet with no loss of elasticity or other key mechanical properties, making them suited for soft-touch applications like grips, handles, knobs, and cushions. They are available in hardnesses from 10 to 45 Shore A and can be applied onto variety of substrates by means of 2-shot, coinjection, or insert molding.
