RadiciGroup at Chinaplas: Nylon specialities at centre stage.

On 23 April, CHINAPLAS 2014, the 28th International Exhibition on Plastics and Rubber Industries, opens in Shanghai. Last year, the international trade show was attended by 114,000 visitors from 138 countries.

At this year’s event, RadiciGroup Plastics, represented by Radici Plastics (Suzhou) Co., Ltd., is showcasing its range of engineering plastics, with an emphasis on specialities. The Group’s local production site in Suzhou was created in 2006 and, since then, has been providing both local and global customers with efficient, high quality before- and after-sales service, as well as flexible and reliable logistics service.

“Over the years our production site in China has grown and changed in order to keep up with the market,” said Edi Degasperi, CEO of Radici Plastics (Suzhou) Co., Ltd. ”We have expanded our product range, invested in R&D and technical support for our Asian customers, and increased our production capacity. We have grown at quite a fast rate on the Chinese market, which has allowed us not only to strengthen our presence in both the electrical/electronics and industrial sectors, but also, and most importantly, to develop yet another application market, the automotive industry. Thanks to our numerous OEM approvals, from GM, FORD, VW, AUDI, FIAT-CHRYSLER and others, we have many new projects in the works, while many others have already reached the mass production stage. In response to the volume growth we have experienced, we plan to install a new extrusion line by the end of the year to increase our production capacity by about 5,000 tons/year.”

“As of today, Radici Plastics Suzhou has the capability to produce and supply the local market with a wide range of products, from engineering plastics to nylon and PBT, acetal copolymers and elastomers from thermoplastic polyamide” Mr. Degasperi continued. ”Following the recent installation of sophisticated additive delivery systems on our extrusion line, our product range also includes nylon specialities, such as Radilon® HHR and Radilon® Xtreme, which are being showcased at CHINAPLAS.”

The spotlight is on: RADILON® nylon specialities with enhanced heat resistance - the HHR (High Heat Resistant) and new RADILON® XTreme lines; RADISTRONG® PA6 and PA6.6 long-fibre plastic specialities, ideal for use as metal replacements; and the RADILON® DT PA6.12 and RADILON® D PA6.10 long-fibre polyamide families.
