RTP Company has developed high-flowing conductive polypropylene compounds for thin-wall injection molding. These materials have typical melt flows of 20 gm/10 min, versus from 1 to 3 gm/10 min with earlier compounds. Typical electrical properties for the new high-flow grades are a surface resistivity of 104 O/sq and a volume resistivity of less than 25 O/cm. For more info visit www.rtpcompany.com.
The transformative nature of designing and making things was the overarching, common theme at separate conferences held in Boston by two giants in the PLM space: Autodesk, with its Accelerate 2015, and Siemens’s Industry Analyst Conference 2015.
