Bioplastic PHA puts new muscle in flexible PVC compounds

Wednesday, June 12th, 2013 | Permalink

New research from Metabolix is putting an interesting twist on the fitness-of-PVC-for-medical applications debate. Naturally produced plastics called polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) can be used as a modifier to significantly improve the physical properties of a PVC compound while simultaneously reducing the amount of phthalate plasticizers needed to make the material flexible for applications such as bags and tubing.

Carbon nanotube ABS compound delivers enhanced paintability

Friday, May 31st, 2013 | Permalink

The paintability of ABS resin has been enhanced through addition of carbon nanotubes (CNT) in a compound development from Korea’s LG Chem (Seoul). Lucon PS 6080EX grade from the supplier enables painting without the need to apply a costly primer layer. Polycarbonate, PC/ABS, mPPO and, and PPS grades are also available, offering electrostatic discharge (ESD) and electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding properties.
