High-performance Plastics, compound solutions, and master batches from Albis Plastic

High-performance Plastics… From October 16th to 20th, 2018, Albis Plastic GmbH will be presenting its portfolio of high-performance Plastics, compound solutions, and master batches at Fakuma 2018 in Friedrichshafen, Germany (hall A3, booth A3-3105).

As one of the world's leading distributors and compounders of technical thermoPlastics and elastomers, the Hamburg-based company will be showcasing products and exhibits from long-term partners BASF, Covestro, INEOS Styrolution, Lanxess, LyondellBasell, Eastman, Solvay, MGG Polymers, and MBA Polymers, as well as its own portfolio of complimentary own brand products.

"We have many new and exciting developments following market trends particularly in recycling, health care, and lighting," says Albis CSO Ian Mills. "We're really looking forward to presenting them to our customers and business partners. This comprehensive selection of products will help us make good on our promise to deliver the perfect solutions every time for our customers’ specific needs."

Tailor-made compounds for health care applications

With Alcom MED, Albis Plastic has expanded its product portfolio to include tailor-made compounds for health care applications such as medical products, pharmaceutical packaging, and diagnostic applications. These products are based on a variety of different polymers and include colouring as well as a variety of fillers. Besides the technical features of its products, Albis also offers benefits such as recipe uniformity, dedicated change management, and regulatory support.

Lighting product line for the latest design developments

Alcom LDDC, the newest addition to Albis's Alcom Lighting product line, created in response to the latest developments in vehicle interior design. The product can be used to create high-gloss lacquer surfaces that can be back-lit in any color, resulting in exceptionally high-quality symbols and displays on seamless functional surfaces in any color imaginable - with no discoloration.

In addition, the company expanded what is already a market-leading lighting portfolio to include Makrolon polycarbonate materials from Covestro. The portfolio includes specially developed materials with light diffusion effects, high reflection coefficients, and increased thermal conductivity—plus Makrolon LED materials, whose high degree of optical purity makes them perfect for crystal-clear injection molding and extrusion applications.

Ultramid Deep Gloss from BASF is making automobile interiors shine as well; the special polyamide combines the chemical resistance of semicrystalline polyamides with the high gloss and depth of view of amorphous Plastics.

Compounds for complex applications

For more complex applications, the Ultramid Advanced N line of compounds offers exceptional mechanical properties at higher temperatures, increased resistance to moisture and aggressive media, and some of the best dimensional stability ever achieved in polyamides.

Ultramid Vision is a semicrystalline polyamide that allows light to pass through largely unhindered, yielding transparent yet highly durable components. Its balanced profile of properties makes it perfect for chemically demanding environments, which is why it is used in a variety of industries for visual controls, illumination, and lighting design. The Albis trade fair stand will feature the Pro Glove, an exhibit that brings the advantages of Ultramid Vision to life.
