RTP Company recently announced a series of thermoplastic compounds that weigh five to ten percent less than typical filled compounds, but which still retain the same mechanical properties and similar shrinkage values as other such compounds.
LT Compounds are the quickest and simplest way to achieve weight decreases in glass fiber molded parts without jeopardizing performance. LT Compounds can be dropped in, so tool adjustments aren’t required, either. Its density reduction, unlike chemical foaming agents, does not depend on wall thickness, so the parts can be attractive. The switch is cost effective and smooth.
LT Compounds work well with hand-held items, sporting goods, or devices that would benefit with weight reduction.
For nearly twenty years, Ecomass Technologies has been delivering innovative solutions through advanced composite materials and engineered thermoplastics. It has worked successfully with both government and commercial clients to solve a host of challenges. Its skill and expertise in the design and development of high-density polymers and thermoplastic compounds gives its customers the freedom to focus on design, form, and function. Ecomass’ goal is to empower its customers with the highest-performance and lowest-cost materials, thereby allowing them to effectively compete in their respective markets.
In the United States, Ecomass Technologies is the innovative and technological leader in high density engineered thermoplastics. Its line of patented, nontoxic, high-density polymer thermoplastic composite materials can be formulated to meet a wide range of customer needs.
Ecomass’ engineered thermoplastics and high-density polymer compounds have been specified as a direct substitute in a number of applications and also used as balancing weights to reduce the loads to which a part is exposed, increasing the part’s service life.
Engineered thermoplastics, “heavy plastics,” or high density polymers, while their names convey the opposite, interestingly, make parts lighter and improve performance. Regardless of whether the goal is to improve performance, balance, increase service life, or shield radiation, manufacturers need high density materials that allow them to add mass to specific locations.
Ecomass’ customer service team is recognized for its skill and responsiveness. See its website for contact information and its RFQ Form. It’s probably already worked on the solution you’re seeking.
