LNP has added relatively lightweight members to its line of high-specific-gravity thermoplastics. The company's Thermocomp HSG line, which in the past covered a specific gravity range from 5.0 to 10.0, now includes grades in the 2.0 to 5.0 specific-gravity range. These new materials consist of a combination of resins and high-density fillers. Thermocomp HSG compounds target applications that require a high-quality look and feel —for example, plumbing fixtures and toys. The compounds can also replace metals in applications that require resiliency, such as those used in medical devices and surgical instruments. For more info, visit LNP at www.lnp.com.
