PPS: new RadiciGroup engineering plastics
From specialties for metal replacement to LCPAs: RadiciGroup expands its offering with new innovative products. At Fakuma 2017, the Group presents its latest product innovations.
The RadiciGroup Performance Plastics Business Area is exhibiting at Fakuma 2017 (Hall A1 Stand 1106) in Friedrichshafen, Germany. Germany is a strategic market for RadiciGroup, and the Group’s chemicals and engineering plastics businesses both have production sites in the country.
To meet the ever more exacting requirements of the engineering plastics market – notably the important German automotive industry – in terms of innovation and performance, RadiciGroup has carried out its strategy of becoming a partner that can always be counted on. And, to this end, the Group has continued to expand its range of high performance polymers. At Fakuma 2017, RadiciGroup is officially announcing its new PPS-based products: high-performance polymers, particularly suited to engineering applications.
The distinguishing characteristics of the new Raditeck® P materials are as follows:
- Superior chemical resistance to oil, fuel, solvents and water-glycol solutions.
- Retention of mechanical properties when exposed to high temperature in air and other fluids.
- High dimensional stability thanks to very low hygroscopicity.
- Natural flame resistance.
“The Raditeck® P products were created as part of RadiciGroup’s strategy of expanding its speciality products portfolio,” stated Erico Spini, marketing manager Europe of RadiciGroup Performance Plastics. “A wider choice of available materials allows us to better support our customers, specifically in their projects involving innovation and metal replacement. At Fakuma 2017, we are presenting five Raditeck® P grades, from a 40% glass-fibre fill to a 65% mixed mineral-glass fibre fill. Naturally, we are ready to create new customized grades, in line with our collaboration philosophy, which has always positively influenced business relations between our company and our partners.”
