PTS and FPL Collaborate in the Area of High-Tech Compounds
A new technical collaboration and licensing agreement between two compounding companies, Formulated Polymers Limited (FPL) in Chennai, India and Polymer Technology & Services LLC (PTS) in Murfreesboro, TN/USA, will expand the availability of PTS compounds in Asia, particularly South East Asia. The agreement was signed in April by FPL Joint Managing Director Sekar Venkateswaran and PTS President Tom Hooper. PTS compounds are already manufactured in China.
“With this collaboration, FPL will have the capability to offer processors supplying the electrical and electronics industry in India and across South-East Asia an expanded range of Underwriters Laboratory-approved flame retardant products,” says Hooper. “This is an important step in our strategy at PTS to reach those processors around the world demanding high performance UL-compliant flame retardant compounds.” PTS now has its own or licensed manufacturing operations in the USA, Europe, China, and India.
Both FPL and PTS also have technical collaboration agreements with Eurostar Engineering Plastics in Fosses, France, under which they produce and distribute Eurostar’s range of STARFLAM® flame retardant polyamides; this encompasses over 120 UL-certified products.
