Extrusion International 5-2023

43 Extrusion International 5/2023 Evolution Accelerator for Plastics Making new technology possible and creating real added value - that is the goal of the LEHVOSS Group. Concrete product ideas are just as much a focus as sustainability and tangible profitability. At the FAKU - MA, the Hamburg-based company will present numerous application examples that go beyond the limits of what was previously feasible. For the LEHVOSS Group, the trade fair is all about increasing perfor- mance. The Customized Polymer Materials division presents products that are unique in the world and open up completely new possibili- ties in the design and processing of plastics. The LEHVOSS Group is also setting the course for the future in the area of masterbatches and additives. Weight reduction is the keyword here, and the results are quite im - pressive. With newly developed propellant masterbatches, 24% lighter com - ponents could be manufactured in the automotive sector – with an ad- dition of just one percent. The mas- terbatches are suitable for standard injection molding and extrusion processes, are ADC-free and have excellent processing properties. For example, a significant reduction in sink marks can be achieved from a dosage of just 0.1%. Due to their physiological harmlessness, they can also be used in the food industry. When it comes to flame retardan - cy, the Hamburg plastics profession - als score points with halogen-free masterbatches based on nitrogen, phosphorus and mineral additives with high intumescence. A high level of material compatibility is achieved through specially adapted polymer carriers: the possible uses range from film structures to cables and components with high wall thicknesses. The additive Inovia en- ables PMMA and PC to be flame re - tardant, which is also halogen-free, without sacrificing transparency. In addition to the latest technolog- ical solutions, the company wants to demonstrate their main strength at the trade fair: the rapid and practical development of high-performance plastics.
