Polyplastics to highlight new material technologies at K Show

Polyplastics to highlight new material technologies at K Show


Polyplastics, a leading global supplier of engineering thermoplastics, and its subsidiary TOPAS Advanced Polymers GmbH, a leading manufacturer of cyclic olefin copolymers (COCs), will jointly showcase their leading-edge material technologies and products at the upcoming K 2019 exhibition which runs Oct. 16-23 in Düsseldorf, Germany.


The triennial K show will provide a center stage to reinforce Polyplastics’ leading role as the world’s largest manufacturer of polyoxymethylene (POM) and a specialist in engineering plastics, supported by over 50 years of material science and product development experience. Under its exhibition theme of "Your Ideas. Our Material. Success Together,” Polyplastics will highlight the latest developments in DURACON® POM.

For automotive applications, Polyplastics will discuss the recent launch of DURACON® POM grades for the production of injection molded automotive fuel system components. A new high-flow/high-rigidity POM grade has a melt flow rate (MFR) around 14. This material suits a wide range of molding conditions (cylinder conditions, injection pressure) and is used in Europe.

Other key highlights in POM include a new grade which combines high strength with good creep and sliding properties.

Polyplastics will also focus on the latest development in DURAFIDE® PPS, DURANEX® PBT, and LAPEROS® LCP. For electric vehicle applications, the company has developed new DURANEX® PBT and DURAFIDE® PPS materials - targeted for engine peripheral parts such power control units (PCUs) – to deliver high insulating properties, lower water absorption, and meet harsh operating conditions (-40°C to 150°C, up to 95% relative humidity).

Polyplastics continues to see strong growth for its TOPAS® COCs which have a unique performance profile and continue to find strong appeal in the healthcare industry (drug delivery and blisters/trays) and diagnostics (POC/PCR/microfluidics). The company continues to work closely with OEMs and processors on new solutions to create next-generation products. The unique attributes of TOPAS COC - purity, drug compatibility, transparency, biocompatibility, and dimensional stability – are finding their way into demanding, high-performance end uses. TOPAS COC resins are being employed in wearable drug delivery devices for medications such as insulin and pain medicines.
