Exhibitors' Showcase Part 2 presents the raw materials and compounds on exhibit at K 2022, with product description and contact details of exhibitors.
ACTEGA: TPE for medical applications
Actega has improved the formulations for its ProvaMed® portfolio. The TPE formulations display an excellent degree of transparency. An important factor wherever the flow of fluids needs to be highly visible or the position of the tubing must be traceable. The high-purity and elastic material is smooth, flexible and kink-resistant. Other points include good recovery behaviour and damping properties, enabling hoses to return to their original shape after deformation. The compounds have been approved in accordance with USPVI and ISO 10993 and are free of PVC, silicone, latex and plasticisers. They are allergen-free and any interaction between tubing material and pharmaceutical or endogenous substances, can be avoided.

DuPont: Bio-based TPEs
DuPont Mobility & Materials features its new Hytrel® ECO B, a range of bio-based TPC-ET thermoplastic elastomers. Developed to help customers improve the environmental footprint of their products, Hytrel® ECO B grades deliver performance equivalent to those made from fossil feedstock, but with biomass content up to 72% by weight. As a result, OEMs reap the processing benefits and mechanical properties of Hytrel®, but at a lower impact on the environment and without processing requalification. DuPont produces Hytrel® ECO B using a biomass balance approach certified by the ISCC+ (International Sustainability & Carbon Certification) standard.
KRAIBURG TPE: TPE sustainability solutions
Highlights of exhibits include: Proof of Recyclability where Institute cyclos-HTP, an independent company specialised in assessment and certification, has successfully tested and certified the compatibility of selected TPS materials in the recycling stream for HDPEs and PPs on behalf of KRAIBURG TPE; RC/UV - With a proportion of post-industrial recycled materials ranging from a minimum of 20% to a maximum of 40%, the series meets the high requirements for OEMs’ automotive exteriors; Interior PIR TPE - The new product solution contributes to meeting recycling quotas with a proportion of recycled material of up to 38%; Universal PCR TPE that is tailored to meet the requirements for many consumer and industry applications and allows a portion of up to 41% post-consumer recyclate.

Modern Dispersions: Nanocarbons
Modern Dispersions Inc. presents its latest developmental work with nanocarbons to boost the performance of masterbatch and compound solutions. Modern Dispersions continues to undertake research and development work with new grades of carbon black, graphite, and nanocarbons to improve thermoplastic compound properties such as colour, UV resistance, and electrical and thermal conductivity. Due to the lower filler loadings required with nanocarbons, better physical properties can be achieved with these types of compounds. Modern Dispersions will also showcase its extensive product portfolio including black masterbatches, wood-polymer composites (WPC), and colour concentrates.

Momentive: LSR and hardcoats
Momentive Performance Materials focuses on the requirements of modern mobility concepts with corresponding developments from the areas of Liquid Silicone Rubbers (LSR) and Hardcoats. These include flame-retardant LSRs grades for the cost-efficient production of hard-soft composites, and grades that crosslink at low temperature, thus facilitating the production of thick-walled parts. The LSR grades NL6830FR and NL6850FR, both in dark gray, meet the UL94-V0 requirements at 1 mm thickness. With Shore A hardnesses of 35 and 45, respectively, they combine balanced yet very good mechanical properties with low compression set. Silopren™ LSR 2725/40 is a further developed, self-lubricating grade.

WACKER: Silicone resin binders
The industry is increasingly faced with the challenging task of producing mechanically resilient plastic components that can permanently withstand temperatures above 200 degrees Celsius. WACKER has developed a novel material solution for this purpose, to be presented for the first time at the K 2022. With the help of the silicone resin binders SILRES® LR 700 or POWERSIL® Resin 700 and the silicone moulding material POWERSIL® Resin 710 based on it, moulded parts can be pressed, pressure gelled or even injection moulded. The product is therefore suitable for moulded parts of heat class R, which must permanently withstand temperatures of up to 220°C. The solvent-free phenyl-methyl silicone resin binders SILRES® LR 700 and POWERSIL® Resin 700 are low-viscosity, clear liquids.
