Solvay Advanced Polymers LLC's
KetaSpire KT-851 NT is a medium-viscosity resin designed for use in melt
extrusion-based wire and cable insulation layers and for the production of
monofilaments and high denier multi-filament fibers. Cleanliness is achieved
through Solvay's proprietary filtration process and allows for production of
articles that are low in gel content and other particulate contamination.
The new PEEK grade
exhibits long-term oxidative thermal stability for use in high-temperature
environments over prolonged durations. KT-851 NT can be used for melt extrusion
of thin films down to thicknesses as low as six microns, supporting
applications such as capacitors, speaker membranes and aerospace
thermal-acoustic insulation blankets and bagging materials. Other demanding
uses are in the medical industry for components like thin-walled medical
capillaries and tubing. KT-851 is available in two versions: KT-851 NT
incorporates a trace level (0.01 percent) of a lubricant dusted on the pellets
to facilitate conveying in extrusion screws while KT-851 NL is the pure polymer
with no lubricant.
BMW has already incorporated more than 10,000 3D-printed parts in the Rolls-Royce Phantom and intends to expand the use of 3D printing in its cars even more in the future. Meanwhile, Daimler has started using additive manufacturing for producing spare parts in Mercedes-Benz Trucks.
Researchers have been developing a number of nano- and micro-scale technologies that can be used for implantable medical technology for the treatment of disease, diagnostics, prevention, and other health-related applications.
SABIC's lightweighting polycarbonate glazing materials have appeared for the first time in a production car: the rear quarter window of Toyota's special edition 86 GRMN sports car, where they're saving 50% of its weight compared to conventional glass.
