K‘2013 Preview

K‘2013 Preview Treffert Over the years, many coloring agents, pigments and dyes have been developed for standard and engineering plastics. Whether these are suitable for coloring bioplastics, however, must be separately researched for each polymer type and application. Also, almost all plastics have their own color, which is why Treffert S.A.S. not only develops its own formulae for all colors but also adapts the coloring agent to each specific bioplastic. Joining and laser marking of engineering bioplastics are also possible with the color and function formulae used by Treffert polymer technology. High color quality depends on good dispersion; hence the way the dye is delivered to the processor is hugely important. Whether in masterbatches or concentrates, the pigments, dyes and/or special additives are optimally distributed in a carrier in high concentrations. Masterbatches for color and function are always tailormade to customer specifications. 5D04-11 Croda Coatings & Polymers Croda Coatings & Polymers will present an extensive selection of sustainable monomers (building blocks), polyols and additives for use in high-end applications. These products offer a wide range of different functionalities alongside high performance properties. PriamineTM 1075 is a truly innovative flexible dimer diamine bio-based monomer for high-end polyimide plastics offering excellent moisture protection, enhanced solubility and affinity for a wide range of substrates. This dimer diamine truly stretches the boundaries in polyimides as it offers the formulator a new window of application opportunities. Croda Coatings & Polymers has extended its range of 100% bio-based Priplast TM polyester polyol building blocks for polyurethane applications with the introduction of Priplast 3293. Priplast 3293 is semi-crystalline and its availability broadens the amorphous Priplast range to meet the requirements for high demanding polyurethane applications by offering performance characteristics such as hydrolytic and thermo-oxidative stability combined with an improved environmental profile. 7C10 Show Review See the K’2013 Review in our next Issue! Sulzer Chemtech Sulzer’s development of a new high performance PLA technology produced from lactide was awarded with the Frost and Sullivan Innovation award in 2010. Their PLA technology gives access to a wide range of PLA grades, covering a broad span of molecular weights with extremely low residual monomers. This also includes pure PDLA, PLLA and stereocomplex materials, allowing to achieve a temperature stability up to 180 °C. The polymerization process is continuous, avoids the application of solvents and is based on Sulzer’s proprietary static mixing solutions. The absence of heavy rotating parts results in reduced OPEX and maintenance costs. In parallel to delivering new PLA capacities to its customers, for example, in Europe and Asia, since 2012 Sulzer operates its own 1,000 tonnes/year PLA demonstration plant in Switzerland. Companies intending to invest in new PLA production capacities, or to develop specific applications based on PLA, can rely on Sulzer’s Polymer Technology team to support them with fully developed process technology solutions and commercial quantities of PLA material. To organize a visit to Sulzer’s PLA demonstration plant or to order PLA sample material, contact Sulzer (e.g.) at their booth. 09/E24 40 bioplastics MAGAZINE [05/13] Vol. 8
