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.
Anti-creak – Puts an end to noises
Who is not familiar with the unpleasant sounds and noises of everyday life? When plastic parts rub together they noise can be enough to make your hair stand on end, as the saying goes. New developments in additives are able to eliminate the annoying noises made by plastic parts in household, health and technical environments.
Electrically conductive products from GRAFE – Now with lower PAH
For the protection of consumers, it is required that electrically conductive products meet high legal standards. Wherever they may come in contact with skin, even for short periods, it must be ensured that PAH concentrations in materials do not exceed maximum levels. The GRAFE Group has successfully developed reduced-PAH conductive compounds to meet the standards required by the GS seal for tested quality in the Categories 1 – 2.
Color Trends for 2014
Colors go in trends that are generally very short-term and come around again quickly. The GRAFE-Design-Center is presenting its 2014 trend colors for plastics packaging masterbatches in a series of creative comic strip adventures.
Secure hold with a reliable closing
When the bio-trash begins to smell bad and the bag rips on the way to the trash bin – that may well be the end of a good mood. Protecting the environment is also an important role for bio trash bags. The GRAFE Group took on the task for the company pely-plastic to create an environmentally friendly and sturdy drawstring.
Saving Time and Energy
Resource-optimized production of plastic components such as packaging is becoming increasingly important, since cost savings can be made right from the production stage. These are achieved through the incorporation of an additive masterbatch that permits faster processing at lower temperatures.
The use of infra-red transparent (IRT) colors on biologically degradable plastic mulch films
Mulch films can be used when cultivating crops in order to achieve earlier and higher yields as well as to enhance the quality of many different types of vegetables.
Work safety made by GRAFE
Blankenhain/Thuringia, October 2013 –GRAFE Polymer Technik GmbH is one of the most innovative partners to the plastics processing industry. The company from Thuringia is presenting its latest material development at the K: a permanently antistatic compound for the manufacture of safety helmets. The primary objective in developing this material was to meet the requirements of DIN EN 397, since protecting the health and safety of people is of highest priority.
Weight reduction in aircraft engineering
Blankenhain, October 2013 – Mass mobility, on the streets and in the air, continues to grow steadily. With this in mind, new developments which offer alternatives to traditional materials are of particular importance. A significant factor is the development of increasingly lighter materials for the production of faster and more dynamic vehicles and aircraft.
