Defying Environmental Influences

Lanxess

The housing parts for the batteries in this e-scooter from Askoll Holding srl, Dueville, Italy, consist of a PBT+ASA blend (© Askoll)

A new compound from Lanxess Germany GmbH, Cologne, Germany, promises to be more or less light and moisture resistant. Pocan is the trade name for a combination of polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) and acrylic ester-styrene-acrylonitrile (ASA) with glass fibers which will be available immediately and is designed for geometrically complex and large-surface housing parts in electrical and electronic applications. Due to its very low ASA content, Pocan undergoes hardly any warping (Fig. 6). Not only that, but the blend is highly flame retardant and very resistant to weathering – additional UV-protective coating is therefore superfluous. For general protection against hydrolysis, the company offers Stabaxol A. This antihydrolysis agent is eminently suitable for the bioplastic polylactide (PLA), but can also be used in other thermoplastic polymers such as polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and polybutylene terephthalate (PBT).

The Macrolex Gran series of microgranules from Lanxess consists of hollow spheres and is suitable for coloring thermoplastics. The hollow spheres are very easy to crush, a fact which allows the primary particles to be uniformly dispersed in the polymer, including food-contact grades. Apart from easier dispersing, the material manufacturer claims that processing in general is facilitated. As less dust is developed, the costs of protective measures and equipment cleaning are lowered.
