Reinforced Plastics CHANGE TOPIC

Reinforced Plastics

Product
 

BASF has developed a polyamide 6 particle foam that it says has high temperature and chemical resistance when in contact with fuels, oils and lubricants.

Product
 

Lanxess has added two new materials to its Durethan TC range of thermally conductive polyamide compounds.

News
 

UK-based MSA Manufacturing Ltd (MSA) has added new factory space and improved its processes for reinforcement kitting and preforming.

News
 

Dura Composites has reportedly achieved Gold level status with Constructionline, a UK procurement and supply chain management service.

Product
 

Scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute have researched a way to develop flame retardant thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) more quickly.

News
 

Adhesive specialist Henkel has reached a material supply agreement with an Australian manufacturer of one-piece automotive carbon composite wheels.

News
 

Chemicals company Evonik reports that it is expanding capacity for polyamide 12 (PA 12) by more than 50% at its largest site in Marl, Germany.

Product
 

Vision Systems says that it has supplied resin transfer molding (RTM) composite products to the RACER (rapid and cost-effective rotorcraft) project.

News
 

Solvay says that it is expanding its thermoplastic composites capacity with a new production line at its US facility in Anaheim, California, USA.

Product
 

Lanxess says that its Tepex continuous-fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composite has been used to form structural components in passenger cars.

Feature
 

Production machines do not utilize the full diversity of composite materials, To exploit this diversity, production machines have to be flexible as well.

Feature
 

While maximum theoretical carbon yield for the carbonisation of viscose fibres is 44%, in reality the carbon yield is just in the range of 20%.

Feature
 

A breakthrough technology from the Technical University of Munich makes it possible to produce carbon fiber without any fossil materials.
