Phenolic Plus BRUGGOLEN® TP-H1803
Brüggemann's Phenolic Plus BRUGGOLEN® TP-H1803 is a new heat stabilizer for polyamides designed to outperform conventional phenolic/phosphite based stabilizers, i.e. blends of sterically hindered phenolic antioxidants with organic phosphites. BRUGGOLEN® TP-H1803 bridges the price-performance gap between these blends and copper based stabilizers.
New flow enhancer
BRUGGOLEN® TP-P1810 from Brüggemann is the first flow enhancer for semi-aromatic polyamides which is available on the market. This product joins BRUGGOLEN® TP-P1507, which is already used worldwide for aliphatic polyamides such as PA6, PA6.6 and PA12. As a result, the company now offers flow enhancers for the entire polyamide spectrum. Both BRUGGOLEN® TP-P1810 and BRUGGOLEN® TP-P1507 demonstrate very significant improvement in melt flow while retaining the mechanical properties of finished components. Supplied in pellet form, they are easy to dose and disperse during direct injection molding and compounding.
Upcycling from polyamide waste
When recycling polyamides, Brüggemann's BRUGGOLEN® M series of reactive chain modifiers allow precise and reproducible adjustment of relative viscosities, by either lengthening excessively short chains or shortening those which are too long. Producers can use small amounts of these modifiers to tailor relative viscosities to their needs in a single compounding step. The resultant upcycled materials exhibit excellent mechanical properties and are suitable for the same applications as prime materials of similar viscosities. This removes the need to blend the recyclate with prime polymers and opens up a wide range of possibilities for establishing a profitable market for secondary polyamide raw materials which meet the high-quality requirements of the molding industry.
