Color expertise starting from tool configuration

Plastics with metallic effects are now an important design element - whether in automotive visible parts, the furniture industry, electronics or household goods. The Thuringian company GRAFE, headquartered in Blankenhain, has extensive expertise in this field. "We often face the challenge that the customer has a tool available at their site and asks us to deliver a masterbatch with no flow lines. Even though the tool’s design makes it virtually impossible", reports sales staff Thomas Beer.

Improved performance for UV and thermal stabilization

The Thuringian company GRAFE, headquartered in Blankenhain, Germany, develops new color additive combination masterbatches for ABS and PC/ABS, which achieve improved performance in terms of UV and thermal stabilization with lower addition doses. They are suitable for a broad range of applications in a wide variety of industries where the plastic is exposed to direct sunlight and requires particularly good load-bearing capacity and high heat resistance.

Color expert for additive manufacturing

Once a niche for hobbyists - today a mass market: Over the past ten years, 3D printing has developed into a high-turnover business and is now an important step towards series production. If you take a look at the forecasts for the future, they look excellent with double-digit growth rates. According to a report by the International Data Corporation (IDC), the global 3D printing industry is expected to generate sales of 13.8 billion US dollars in 2019. By 2022, the additive manufacturing market is expected to grow to $22.7 billion.

Electrically conductive PA6 with very good mechanical properties

GRAFE, Blankenhain, has developed an electrically conductive PA6 with very good mechanical properties and will present it at K 2019. "The conductivity is achieved through the use of conductive soot. No glass fibres are used to reinforce the material and no carbon fibres are used to achieve electrical conductivity.
This makes our compound less expensive, because the absence of  fibers makes it much more cost-effective," explains GRAFE sales manager Lars Tonnecker.

Antistatic masterbatch reduces dust attraction on plastics

Their own high-performance antistatic masterbatch with a long lasting effect, has been further developed by the family business from Blankenhain. The product was introduced at the K 2019. "We have adapted the recipe and optimized it for other carrier materials. Depending on the application and storage conditions, the long-term effect can last up to four years. It occurs immediately after the end product has been manufactured," explains additive specialist Dr. Carlos Caro, referring to the special feature of the development. "The surface resistance is in the static-dissipative range between 10E6 and 10E9 ohms. These values are very difficult to achieve with other products on the market".

Plastics improve the world. GRAFE wants to show the potential of this material with a clear positioning.

Huge patches of garbage in the ocean, particles in the Arctic, a ban on disposable bags and straws: Everyone is talking about plastic, but its reputation is not a good one at the moment. The company GRAFE, headquartered in Blankenhain, wants to take advantage of these difficult times to break new strategic ground at K 2019 and demonstrate a clear positioning " promote plastics". The company will be presenting its entire development potential on a considerably larger, 217 square metre stand under the motto "Plastics have improved the world - GRAFE improves plastics".

Effective flame retardant for polycarbonate and polyethylene terephthalate

GRAFE has developed a new effective flame retardant for polycarbonate.
It contains neither halogen nor phosphorus and achieves a UL94-V0 classification even at comparatively low dosages. "The carrier system of the masterbatch is based on an impact-resistant base material and thus compensates for negative influences on the mechanical properties by adding flame retardant additives," explains Dr. Jan Stadermann, head of the Material Science Department at GRAFE.
