High quality in Multi-component injection molding

Hard/soft combinations based on adhesion-modified TPV and polyamide

This paper is focused on a new adhesion-modified TPE-V series called Alfater XL 4PA0010 for high quality PA-based hard/soft combinations. These adhesion-modified TPE-V grades offer good bonding to a broad range of PA6 and PA66 including non-reinforced, glass fiber reinforced, and impact-modified PA. They are suitable for conventional 2-shot injection molding as well as for cold insert molding. Influences on the bonding, like the injection molding conditions or additives in the compounds or furthermore high moisture contents of PA have been examined. more...

TPE für Spritzenkolbendichtungen

Safe syringes

TPE eignet sich sehr gut als Dichtungsmasse, um Spritzemkolben leckagefrei abzudichten. Die Dichtungen lassen sich im Spritzguss herstellen – ein Verfahren, das quasi allen Herstellern von Einwegspritzen zur Verfügung steht. Zudem ist TPE leicht rezyklierbar. more...

Fig. 1: Example of DRS spectrum of Engage 8200 elastomers. The graphs of the spectrum are set for the next film, and radiation-treated and non-irradiated samples of aged. To facilitate the analysis of the results in terms of impact on the radiolysis addition of peroxide and vulcanization summarizes the spectrum for different film irradiated with the same dose.

Cross-linking of Elastomers

The Comparison of Radiation and a Peroxide Crosslinking of Elastomers

Radiation crosslinking of elastomers is an interesting example of a modification of polymers by means of ionizing radiation. The practical significance of crosslinking can be connected to traditional (using peroxides) with radiation treatment. The aim of this study was to describe the phenomenon of mixed radiation/peroxide and peroxide/radiation crosslinking thermoplastic elastomers Engage 8200 [1, 2, 3]. more...
