From formula development to expertise in the use of additives – at WIPAG, we have comprehensive knowledge of the compounding of plastics.
Odours and emissions: important issues in the automobile industry
We achieve TVOC reductions and improved odours through our new formula; this is especially advantageous for polyolefins which are now increasingly being used in vehicle interiors.
A real-life example of targeted improvement of material properties
The properties of polycarbonate blends such as PC/PET start to deteriorate as soon as the plastic is injected for the first time; the effects of this deterioration include a higher melt flow index and a reduction in notched impact strength.
Using the right additives, the recycled material can, however, be restored to the quality level of new material.
Adjustment of material properties:
- filler content
- UV protection
- impact strength
- mould release
- odour improvement
- reduction in emissions
