Construction Polymers

The technical plastic types – also called structural plastics or Engineering plastics – are a group of plastic materials used for demanding tasks where higher requirements are placed on properties such as impact strength, stiffness, chemical resistance, heat resistance, durability and fire retardant properties, etc.

Structural plastic thus possesses a better combination of physical, thermal and chemical properties than the so-called Basic Polymers typically exhibit.

SAN - Styrene Acrylonitril

SAN is a copolymer of Styrene and Acrylonitril and is distinguished by its good stiffness, hardness, good properties at higher temperature, but most importantly, the SAN has polystyrene clarity, but has better chemical resistance than polystyrene. With these properties, SAN is used for drinking glasses, bowls, cosmetic containers, window panels, battery boxes, etc.

Plastcom has several SAN grades in stock in Kolding.

Manufacturer - Versalis

Versalis produktionsfacility for styrene basered materials is located in Mantua, Italy and Százhalombatta, Hungary. The processes are all based on proprietary technology, and are known at international level for their technological excellence.

Versalis is recognized as one of Europe’s largest manufacturers of SAN. Plastcom supplies directly from Versalis’ factories to our customers in Denmark.

ABS - Acrylic nitrile Butadien Styren

ABS is an amorphous plastic consisting of Acrylic nitrile (20-35%), Butadiene (5-30%) and Styren (40-60%). When 3 monomers are included in a copolymer, it is called a terpolymer. The material properties can be adjusted quite a bit depending on the composition, but basically ABS is a cool, strong and rigid material, with excellent dimension stability, hardness and shine. ABS has its limitations in relation to UV and chemical resistance, weather resistance and lack of transparency due to the butadiene content.

The poor weather resistance can be improved with masterbatch and additives. Contact Plastcom for more information about the possibilities.

ABS can easily be processed in injection molding, extrusion and vacuum forming. Applications are everything from household appliances, toys, cabinets, suitcases, automotive and other technical articles.

Plastcom offers deliveries both directly from the plant and from our warehouse in Kolding.

ABS comes in a variety of Sinkral® qualities.

Manufacturer - Versalis

Versalis produces its Sinkral® ABS based on an innovative continuous mass technology developed by their R&D team and is also widely used for their other control materials (SAN, GPPS and HIPS).

By being a one-step, closed loop in a continuous process, Versali’s ABS technology ensures a consistent lot-to-lot consistency, homogeneity and stability compared to the traditional emulsion batch process. From the user’s point of view, it means a more reliable and uniform raw material.

PC - Polycarbonate

Polycarbonate is an amorphous transparent plastic characterized by great impact strength, toughness, and breaking strength. The material has good heat resistance, relatively high stiffness, good UV properties as well as good electrical insulation properties. The material has limitations in connection with strong acids and bases, as well as persistent hot water.

PC is widely used when there is a need for impact strength and transparency such as safety glasses, helmets, skylight products, medical devices, lamps, contact lenses as well as parts for electronic equipment such as TV, radio, etc.

Plastcom offers: PC with different viscosity w/u UV.

Manufacturer - LOTTE Chemical

LOTTE Chemical is the largest petrochemical manufacturer in South Korea. Their process technology is unique and very environmentally friendly, as the material is produced from the greenhouse gas CO2, and Ethylene oxide.

Typically, PC is produced by using the highly environmentally damaging chemicals Phosgen and Methyl chloride. So if environmental considerations are a priority, Lotte Chemicals PC is the safe choice.

PA6 - Polyamide 6

Polyamide 6 (nylon) is a subcrystalline plastic widely used in the plastics industry. The material is characterized by being hygroscopic – meaning it absorbs moisture until it is conditioned. The properties of the material are high impact strength, toughness, durability, and good chemical resistance. Often supplied as glass- mineral reinforced qualities.

The material is light-flowing with short cycle times. Not transparent.

The material is typically used for sliding bearings, gears, couplings, electrical equipment, cookware, dowels, airtight packaging, etc.

PA66 - Polyamide 66

PA66 shares many of the same material properties as PA6, but PA66 is most often used when a somewhat higher heat resistance is desired or when the hydrolytic stability of PA6 is not sufficient. Pa66 is somewhat stiffer, has higher tensile strength and shrinks than PA6.

PA66 is used in the automotive, mechanical and agricultural industries, cookware, cable ties, fishing lines, brush fibres, extruded profiles and food packaging.

Plastcom offers: PA66 in various viscosity w/u glass fibers.

Value-adding guidance and innovation

Either we find a suitable raw material within our current range – or we develop a brand-new product for you.

Knowledge that translates into qualified elections

An optimal raw material is the foundation for a plastic product with strong properties and the prerequisite for an efficient development process and a competitive production economy.

Choosing the right plastic type and mastarbach is therefore an important but also a complex decision-making process, because there are so many factors that come into play.

When you add the environmental selection criteria to this, qualified plastic technical advice is essential for the functionality of your product, your brand’s reputation and your financial benefits.

It is our most important task to optimise all three things.

Basis Polymers

Description:

The group of Basic Plastics typically counts Polyethylene (PE), Polypropylene (PP) and Polystyrene (PS).

These 3 polymers account for about 50% of the world’s plastic consumption, and are used in everything from foils, packaging, furniture, toys, water bottles, beer boxes, medical devices, hoses, pipes, insulation etc.

In addition, the base polymers (especially PP) can be added to a wide range of additives to add special properties. It can be chalk, talc, glass, pigments etc.

Construction Polymers

Description:

The technical plastic types – also called structural plastics or Engineering plastics – are a group of plastic materials used for demanding tasks.

Here, higher demands are placed on properties such as impact strength, stiffness, chemical resistance, heat resistance, durability and fire retardant properties, etc.

Structural plastic thus possesses a better combination of physical, thermal and chemical properties than the so-called Basic Polymers typically exhibit.

PVC

Description:

PVC is typically divided into two segments – soft and hard PVC.

PVC is a versatile and therefore very attractive material. Among the predominant properties, transparency and good chemical resistance count. In addition, a high degree of stiffness is achieved by the hard types. The softened types, on the other hand, achieve great flexibility in addition to a high degree of impact resistance.

One of the great advantages of the PVC material is that it is “born” self-extinguishable – which is why you do not need to add environmentally damaging fire retardants.

All this, combined with the high recyclability of the material, makes the material very useful in many contexts.

Elastomers

Description:

Thermoplastic elastomers are a very wide product group of soft materials. They are all characterized by high flexibility, but each has their own special strengths.

The elastomers often exhibit similar properties with rubber, but where, for example, TPE has the advantage that it can be processed by traditional thermoplastic processes.

Material properties such as compression, oil resistance, transparency, durability, heat resistance, soft touch are often taken into account by designers when choosing the right material category for e.g. building materials, automotive applications, sporting goods, electrical components and household goods, etc.

Recycle - Post Consumer and Post Industrial

Description:

Recycled materials are typically divided into two segments; Post Consumer and Post Industrial.

In both cases, very well-defined compounds of high quality are developed. Post Industrial grades are of course of higher quality and a little more expensive, but the fact is that Post Consumer qualities often do the job.

As something completely new and unique, Plastcom also offers Bio-based Post Consumer materials – if reducing CO2 is a focus area.
