Visit Venator at K 2019 at Stand K11 in Hall 8a - 16 to 23 October 2019, Dusseldorf Messe
At the K show this w eek, Venator w ill be promoting SACHTOLITH® TC additive - an innovative, soft, w hite, zinc sulfide that can improve the heat management capabilities of polymer systems, w ithout adding electrical conductivity.
Continuing grow th in the consumer electronics sector, and the rise in popularity of LED lighting systems, is increasing demand for polymers that can conduct heat. With products becoming smaller and lighter, designers are actively seeking out plastics that can mitigate the damage that heat can do in confined spaces - to replace the use of metals.
Compatible w ith polycarbonate, ABS, Teflon™ and other resins, SACHTOLITH® TC additive is an ideal filler for plastics used in applications w here a moderate amount of heat is created. With the ability to dissipate heat quickly and efficiently, applications for SACHTOLITH® TC additive include heat sinks for LED lighting systems, components and housings for consumer electronic devices such as phones, laptops and smart w atches; plus sw itch boxes, fuses, and coverings for small electric motors and battery systems.
In addition to being a good conductor of heat, SACHTOLITH® TC additive has metal deactivating properties, w hich can improve polymer system longevity. As a result, this novel additive is suitable for use in applications w here oxidative degradation can be accelerated by the presence of trace metals - for example, in w ire and cable insulation. Chemically resistant on the pH scale betw een 4 and 12, SACHTOLITH® TC additive can be used in abrasion sensitive systems. It can also be used in glass reinforced plastic products, w here it can provide a bright w hite color and heat conductivity, without breaking delicate glass fibers.
Commenting, Jorg Hocken, Global Application Manager at Venator, said: 'Traditionally, the low thermal conductivity of polymers has held back their use in some applications. The development of SACHTOLITH® TC additive can help increase the number of applications polymers can be used in . Where product designers w ould historically have been reliant on the use of metals, they can now sw itch to using plastics - confident in their mechanical stability and their ability to disperse heat.'
During K, Venator w ill also be promoting TIOXIDE® TR 29 - a brand new titanium dioxide (TiO2) pigment. Venator's highest performing w hite pigment for low moisture applications and demanding processing conditions, TIOXIDE® TR29 combines ultra-low moisture content, w ith excellent dispersion properties and a high packing fraction - and is designed for use in the manufacture of highly technical thin films, and in engineering polymers w here moisture sensitivity is a consideration.
