VERTELLUS TO LAUNCH, SPOTLIGHT NEW ADDITIVE TECHNOLOGIES FOR OPTIMIZING POLYMER PROPERTIES AND SUSTAINABILITY AT K 2016

 

PARSIPPANY, N.J. August 4, 2016 — Vertellus, a leading global supplier of additives to the plastics and polymer industries, will introduce at K 2016 (hall 5, booth C08-2) new high- performance additive technologies that help meet increasing industry demand for improved material performance and sustainability. Among these will be the launch of a new family of masterbatches for use in plastics compounding as a unique compatibilizer for polyamide (PA) combined with recycled polyethylene terephthalate (PET), and as a chain extender to produce branched high RV polyamides with lower material and processing costs.

 

Products to be featured by Vertellus at K 2016 offer fresh solutions to multiple industry challenges. These include products that enable weight reduction in automotive parts to cut fuel consumption and emissions; replace phthalates in medical and baby products with non-toxic, bio-based plasticizers; and facilitate broader use of economical, recycled PA and PET resins. The company will also promote the use of its technology in microencapsulation products which are gaining broader use in size regulation of microcapsules in formulations for specialty inks, fragrances and temperature-reactive textiles and mattresses and in construction of energy- efficient “green” buildings.

 

Further, Vertellus will highlight the use of a monomer used to produce polysulfones which offers one of the highest service temperatures among all melt-processable thermoplastics. It also has found some uses in specialty electronic and aerospace applications.


 

Vertellus technical experts will be on hand for the duration of K 2016 – Oct. 19-26 in Düsseldorf, Germany – to answer questions and discuss the company’s robust and growing portfolio of advanced material solutions.
