TECHNOCEL G® for unique surfaces!

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. Description With TECHNOCEL G® from CFF GmbH & Co. KG, we offer a lightweight filler developed to create cost-effective, innovative and unique surfaces…

Titanates and zirconates for plastics recycling

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. You don’t have to accept such disadvantages! Even…

Heat-resistant pigments FALCOHEAT

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…

Magnesium oxide as curing activator for elastomers

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. Goals With the outstanding quality of our RA150, the technical and economic requirements are met. Description A moderate to high magnesium oxide for…

Flame retardant, perfectly hydrophobic additive for HFFR applications

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. Goals Polyolefins have excellent insulating properties, but they are…

Titanates and Zirconates in Compounds

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 propertiesFlame retardancyCost savings As a long-standing partner…
