When formulating textured, special effects or anti-slip surfaces the fillers which create the unique surface property, vary in size and density, and normally require stabilising additives to avoid sedimentation of individual components.Continue reading “TECHNOCEL G® for unique surfaces!”
When recycling plastics, the proportion of polypropylene (PP) in polyethylene (PE) is limited to ~5%. As of today, mixtures of addition polymers (e.g. pure HDPE) and condensation polymers (e.g. nylon) are also incompatible. Compatibilisers are often used, but they often impair the mechanical properties of recycled plastics.Continue reading “Titanates and zirconates for plastics recycling”
High temperature coatings are needed to protect metal surfaces such as grills, cookers, non-stick cookware, engine components, boilers, vehicle exhaust systems and even the working parts of rockets from oxidation over a long period of time. These materials are usually liquid coatings, but powder coatings have also been developed that can withstand temperatures of over 700 degrees Celsius.Continue reading “Heat-resistant pigments FALCOHEAT”
The use of magnesium oxides in the rubber industry is very relevant for many halogenated and non-halogenated elastomers for various reasons. Magnesium oxides are available in different qualities with their corresponding properties.Continue reading “Magnesium oxide as curing activator for elastomers”
In many cases, ATH/MDH fillers are the best choice to meet the standardized requirements for HFFR cable compounds. To perfectly embed the filler particles into the polymer matrix, SICO has developed an innovative additive that revolutionizes mechanical properties and LOI (limited oxigen index) of your product.Continue reading “Flame retardant, perfectly hydrophobic additive for HFFR applications”
4 birds with one stone. This is exactly what you can achieve with your compound by adding 0.3-0.5% of a titanate or zirconate. The high-performance additive causes a nano-fine distribution of your filler or pigment. You profit several times over:
- Filler contents up to 80%
- Improved mechanical and optical properties
- Flame retardancy
- Cost savings
In the course of energy-related façade renovation with external thermal insulation composite systems (ETICS), there is an unmistakable trend towards more intensive colours on façades. Customers increasingly want darker colours. The problem is that dark surfaces heat up more than light ones when exposed to sunlight. In addition, the surfaces of ETICS heat up much more intensively than solid stone masonry. Therefore, the plaster shell of an ETICS is exposed to great stresses due to the occurring, strong temperature fluctuations of the surface. Cracks and deformations are the result. If one analyses the pigment composition of dark shades with a HBW <20, one quickly finds that black pigments play a central role. The darker and thus more colour-neutral the shade, the blacker pigment is used.Continue reading “IR reflective pigment ( Cool Black)”
The efficient production of technical rubber goods and tyres requires high performance, quality and safety in all processing stages.
In animal experiments, nitrosamines have been shown to be carcinogenic. They are therefore suspected of causing cancer in humans, especially stomach cancer.Continue reading “Nitrosamine-free Rubber Masterbatches”
