This year the leader of Russian polymer compounds market R&P Polyplastic traditionally participates in the largest international plastics and rubber trade fair K 2019. The event takes place on October 16-23 in Dusseldorf (Germany).
At the trade fair, R&P Polyplastic will present its latest developments for various industry branches. Following global trends, the Russian compounder pays special attention to biodegradable materials. The company’s R&D Center developed several types of biodegradable materials for polymeric packaging. Decomposition process begins after the compounds contact with ground or water (biodegradation) as well as UV-radiation (biooxydegradation) and takes no longer than 6 months. In the short term, Russian biodegradable compounds will be tested at the customer’s production facilities.
Another promising trend for R&P Polyplastic is the production of Long-Fibre Thermoplastics (LFT). The company’s pilot production plant located in Moscow will produce first batches of LFT-materials based on glass-reinforced polypropylene in the nearest future. A new line is being installed for that purpose. In perspective, LFT-materials will be supplied to leading Russian and international auto manufacturers, producers of household appliances and mechanical engineering companies.
One of the rapidly developing segments of the plastic industry are heat-conductive materials. R&P Polyplastic is making significant progress in this direction. At the moment the company’s R&D Center is developing heat-conductive compounds based on PP, PA 6, PBT and PPC. Several brands of heat-conductive compounds based on PA 6 and PP for heat dissipation radiators of LED lamps are already being tested.
Furthermore, R&P Polyplastic continues to develop its “Export rush” program. Distribution agreements have already been concluded with several European companies including Polytrade, Polystylex and Radka. First large shipments to the international market have taken place this year. For instance, 500 tons of polymer compounds were shipped to one of the largest producers of household appliances in Turkey. In total, more than 10% of R&P Polyplastic compounds are delivered to foreign customers.
