FAKUMA 2017: VELOX presents the largest, high-performance raw materials and solutions

VELOX GmbH, a leading pan-European distributor of raw material specialities for the plastics industry, will be presenting an innovative product range at FAKUMA (booth 5001 in Hall B5), which will be held in Friedrichshafen from 17 to 21 October. In addition to its partner products, VELOX is also introducing PrimeTec®, the company’s own brand for highly specialised solutions for the plastics industry.

Polyphthalamide (PPA): Application-specific and heat-resistant

One highlight of the extensive product spectrum of VELOX is the recent expansion of the product portfolio of the partner PENTAC Polymer GmbH: Polyphthalamide (PPA) offers the possibility for the development of compounds for steadily increasing working temperatures. Additionally, it can be customised to the particular application. Named under the trade marks PENTAMID AHT1 and PENTAMID AHT2, PPA is characterized by their high dimensional stability, especially in high temperature conditions, and is predestined for high duty applications and metal replacement in automotive and engineering. Actual focus is set to high glass fibre reinforced grades.


ASACLEAN PF – High-temperature grade for cleaning of super-engineering resins

Another innovation is ASACLEAN PF, the new high-temperature grade without glass fibres from Asahi Kasei Corporation, which is especially suitable for purging high-performance plastics such as PPS, PEI, PEEK, PSU and others. Asaclean PF has excellent thermal stability and can be used for temperatures between 280°C to 420°C.This grade is ideal not just for rapid colour or material changes, but also for hot-runner purging as well as for machine shutdowns/sealing. For instance, the PF grade has been used for PEI (black) purging: 500 g of ASACLEAN with an injection moulding machine of 50 tons and at a cylinder temperature of 380° C.


ADINS Clay und ADINS Fireproof  for effective flame retardancy

In the additives segment, VELOX presents the products ADINS Clay and ADINS Fireproof from the partner TOLSA – a modified magnesium silicate (sepiolite)  with needle structure that can be used as a synergist in almost all flame retardant systems. In addition to an improvement in the mechanical properties, the ADINS synergists create an enhanced crust, which greatly reduces the release of heat and smoke. The products are available on request with different coatings for better dispersion in the carrier material.

 
   Application example: ASACLEAN PF Grade is used to clean PEI (black). Amount used: 500g. Injection moulding machine: 50 ton. Barrel temperature: 380°C.



VOELPKER wax 4418: Bio-based ester wax with a wide range of applications

Furthermore, Völpker Spezialprodukte will be present with its plastics series. The renowned broadband wax additives WARADUR serve as multifunctional ingredients that provide flow/ mould release improvement and surface optimisation. In addition, they act as excellent dispersion aids. The new development VOELPKER wax  4418 is a patented organic ester wax, based on renewable plant waxes and reveals a similar effect spectrum. It combines in an ideal manner  the characteristics of a multipurpose plastics processing aid with the call for bio-based raw materials. It is therefore also perfectly suitable for thermoplastic polymers, that are derived from renewable resources.


PrimeTec®: Tailor-made solutions by VELOX

In addition to the distribution of the partner products, VELOX has continued to expand its business activities and now offers highly specialised and application-specific solutions for the plastics industry. Under the brand name PrimeTec® the company provides individual new developments as well as modifications for a wide range of products. At FAKUMA, VELOX’ experts will answer all questions concerning PrimeTec®.

"We are delighted to present a wide range of innovative specialties together with our long-standing partners at this year's 25th anniversary edition of FAKUMA. We look forward to the professional exchange and the many encounters with new and existing customers at our booth 5001 in Hall B5 ", says François Minec, General Manager of VELOX.
