grades - SABIC PP 622L and SABIC PP 621P-
are engineered for advanced film technologies such as multi-layer
constructions, and for improved aesthetics and versatility.
materials provide a high level of clarity and gloss, low stress whitening and
high tear resistance. The molecular structure of both grades is tailored for
high performance processing. Both are compliant with U.S. Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) and European Commission (EC) food contact regulations.
They are able to deliver excellent sealing performance and puncture resistance
for extended shelf life and increased safety in food packaging and other
Sabic says they
provide significant advantages over homopolymers in a wide range of packaging
applications, enabling converters to produce film with high clarity and
exceptional sealing and puncture resistance performance.
The Beam Store from Suitable Technologies is managed by remote workers from places as diverse as New York and Sydney, Australia. Employees attend to store visitors through Beam Smart Presence Systems (SPSs) from the company. The systems combine mobility and video conferencing and allow people to communicate directly from a remote location via a screen as well as move around as if they are actually in the room.
An MIT research team has invented what they see as a solution to the need for biodegradable 3D-printable materials made from something besides petroleum-based sources: a water-based robotic additive extrusion method that makes objects from biodegradable hydrogel composites.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
