SABIC, a global leader in the chemical industry, today introduced LNP ELCRIN WF0061BiQ resin, a novel material that uses ocean-bound polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles as a feed stream for chemical upcycling into polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) resin.
Polybutylene terephthalate (PBT)
After one year without trade fairs, the companies of the Feddersen Group are finally looking forward to meeting their business partners in person again at Fakuma 2021. They will be coming up with a whole bouquet of new products and services to provide ideas and inspiration for new, future-oriented and sustainable applications.
The new Pocan XHR (Xtreme Hydrolysis-Resistant) product range from Lanxess boasts outstanding resistance to hydrolytic degradation in very hot and humid conditions.
Customized compounds based on polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) can be a cost-effective alternative to high-performance thermoplastics in the production of fuel filler flaps.
Lanxess offering products and solutions along the value chain of lithium-ion batteries.
Lanxess sees great application potential for its Durethan and Pocan in the New Mobility growth market. This is why the High Performance Materials business unit founded the “e-Powertrain team”.
Specialty chemicals company Lanxess is raising its prices for its engineering plastics of the brands Durethan A and Pocan.
Researchers at ETH Zurich and the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology (Eawag) succeeded in an interdisciplinary study to demonstrate that soil microorganisms metabolically utilised the carbon in the PBAT polymer both for energy production and also to build up microbial biomass.
LANXESS will be presenting its portfolio of high-performance plastics for the electrical and electronics industries at the “Light + Building” industry fair in Frankfurt, Germany.
DSM’s new hydrolysis-resistant Arnite PBT provides new cost-effective alternative to high performance polymers
Royal DSM is adding hydrolysis-resistant grades of polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) to its Arnite family of thermoplastic polyesters.
BASF has developed an Ultradur (PBT, polybutylene terephthalate), modified for co-extrusion with PVC, that replaces steel in PVC windows as the stiffening element.
The worldwide producer of tailor made thermoplastics compounds will be focusing on Blends - the family of compositions with two base polymers
