Compounds with thermal conductivity

Polymer materials can be equipped with very special functions by adding fillers and additives. For example, it is possible to modify the electrical or thermal conductivity of plastics in this manner. Thermally conductive polymer materials, in particular, have been growing in popularity through new applications, for example in the automotive industry.

Function and Color Made to Measure

Dust films on plastic surfaces, e.g. on automobile interiors, are disturbing for the visual impression. Dust accumulation can now be prevented or delayed by means of specially developed static inhibitors that are matched to the respective plastic. Moreover, the conductive inhibitor can be added together with the colorant in a single step.

Energy consultants looking out for new savings potential

Preserving fossil resources and avoiding atomic waste so as to protect future generations and prevent radioactive disasters – such goals can be achieved through the continual development of renewable energy sources. However, the resulting additional costs are passed on to all energy consumers through the German renewable energy surcharge. With the help of GRAFE consultants and special additives these costs can be reduced.
