Novel engineering plastics, polyurethanes and masterbatch preparations
Hydrolysis-stable, Crystal-clear and High-gloss
BASF SE, Ludwigshafen, Germany, is making further inroads into the automotive industry, medical technology and electrical industry with novel engineering plastics, polyurethanes and masterbatch preparations.
The PBT grades Ultradur B4300G6 HR and B4330G6 HR are especially hydrolysis resistant and conform to the strict USCar regulations as well as withstanding the challenging flexural stress tests at 100% air humidity and 110°C.
The external gear wheel of the first oil pump that regulates the oil-volume flow rate via an external gear pump with evolvent gear wheels is made of Ultrason KR 4113. The polyethersulfone reinforced with carbon fibers, graphite and PTFE was chosen to withstand high temperatures, be oil resistant and, first and foremost, show very good sliding friction properties.
With Luran HD, the company presents the second transparent plastic for medical technology. While the first, Terlux HD, offers higher impact strength, the novel production is better resistant to high temperatures and UV.
Terluran BX 13036, a blend of PMMA and ABS, it is claimed, combines the mechanical properties and scratch resistance, high gloss and good color depth of both materials. The piano lacquer effect is intended for both black formulations and white surfaces of electrical and domestic equipment. The new material is currently being launched.
For clear top coats such as on TV frames, telephones or coffee machines, Luran CC (SAN) is available as a specially UV-stabilized formulation. It is claimed to be as brilliant and scratchproof as PMMA, more scratchproof than PC and more lightweight and inexpensive to process.
