Thermoplastic EM Shielding Compounds have ready-to-use formula.
Adhesives & Sealants

Thermoplastic EM Shielding Compounds have ready-to-use formula.

Engineered for housings of electric and electronic devices, LUVOCOM® ES compounds deliver optimized performance against electromagnetic (EM) waves. Properties eliminate need for secondary operations/installation of metal sheets or films or coatings, while rheology, optimized for facilitated processing and thin walls, lowers risk of defects in molded parts due to imperfectly distributed...

PTFE-Modified Compounds exhibit wear resistance under high loads.

Comprising polymers lubricated with PTFE formulation, LUVOCOM® XTF series provides low coefficient of friction while preserving mechanical performance. Benefits include short running-in behavior at start-up. Minimizing deposition in tool cavities, mechanical properties result in PTFE not separating from polymer during injection molding process. Currently available versions include LUVOCOM...

TP Compounds enhance plastic automotive gear wheel resilience.

TP Compounds enhance plastic automotive gear wheel resilience.

Exhibiting increased strengths at room temperature and 240°F for gear wheels subject to high stresses, LUVOCOM® 1-8181 and 1-8520 compounds consist of polyamide 66 fortified with carbon fibers and impact modifiers. Materials also exhibit impact strength that meets/exceeds requirements of gear wheel applications. Depending on component service life, continuous operating temperature is...

Impact Resistant Compounds can replace structural metal.
Adhesives & Sealants

Impact Resistant Compounds can replace structural metal.

Exhibiting strength andÂ- impact resistance, LUVOCOM® SCF compounds are based on such polymers as PA 6, PA 66, PA 46, and PPA and reinforced with carbon fibers. Specific gravity and coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) of these electrically conductive materials enable design of light, strong components. Able to be processed on standard injection molding...

Wear Compounds reduce friction, maintain mechanical properties.
Adhesives & Sealants

Wear Compounds reduce friction, maintain mechanical properties.

Featuring tribological profile that lends to preservation of mechanical performance, LUVOCOM® 8000 PEEK™ wear compounds have deposits of lubricant that eliminate need for additional surface lubrication. Wear factors provided by these materials afford opportunities in automotive, industrial, medical, and energy markets for applications such as thrust washers, bushings, seals, and other...

Thermally Conductive Plastics target LED applications.

While meeting UL94 V-0 flame resistance requirement, LUVOCOM® thermally conductive and electrically insulative materials are characterized by thermal conductivity from 0.6–1.5 W/mK, impact strength up to 14 lb ft/in.Â-², and tensile strength up to 8,000 psi. Typical materials use base polymers PET and PA 6, which meet application requirements, extend component service life, and...

Detectable Plastics target food processing machine components.
Adhesives & Sealants

Detectable Plastics target food processing machine components.

Promoting contamination-free processing of foodstuffs, LUVOCOM® Detectables are magnetic thermoplastic compounds that combine soft magnetic components with impact-resistant polymers. Presence of fragments or particles of injection-molded, extruded, and otherwise fabricated plastic parts can be observed through metal or x-ray detection systems, allowing apprehension and rejection of...
