The Semi-Crystalline Products business unit at LANXESS, whose portfolio includes Durethan and Pocan, is regarded the world over as a premium supplier of high-tech polyamides and polybutylene terephthalates for high-tech applications.
The conductive polyamide 6 Durethan BCF 30 X H2.0 from LANXESS, which is already used in the production of conductive vehicle fuel filter housings and anti-static components for potentially explosive areas in coating lines, is also ideal for use in powder coating applications.
Pocan C 1202, a blend of polybutylene terephthalate and polycarbonate (PBT+PC) newly developed by LANXESS for large exterior truck components, has proven highly effective in an initial series application.
Fully automated coffee machines that make fresh cappuccino, caffè latte, espresso and other specialty drinks by the cup using pads and capsules have long since replaced the plain old coffee pot in many companies and households.
Vulcuren, the crosslinking agent from LANXESS, is not just a valuable crosslinker and anti-reversion agent for the manufacture of energy-saving “green tires”. It is also an alternative to the secondary accelerator N,N’ diphenylguanidine (DPG), say experts in LANXESS’ Rubber Chemicals business unit.
LANXESS, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of synthetic rubber, has developed a new plasticizer for polar rubber products crosslinked with sulfur.
