“We have just increased our production capacity,” pointed out Alberto Sessolo, CEO of Radici Plastics Suzhou Co. Ltd, “aiming primarily at enhancing our flexibility in order to better satisfy our customers, also for special application needs.

In particular, we have been following the evolution of electric cars very closely, and we are working on a number of very interesting projects in collaboration with both local and global OEMs.

Our objective is to continue to grow, despite the fact that the world market, including China, started sending out signals of a slowdown from year-end 2018 to the beginning of 2019. In any case, we are confident that we are going to achieve our objectives.” RadiciGroup automotive Chinaplas 2019

Regarding products, markets and applications, Erico Spini, global marketing manager of RadiciGroup High Performance Polymers, explained RadiciGroup’s focus at Chinaplas: “Today China is the world leader in the development of new vehicles with electric engines. For this market, RadiciGroup offers materials specifically developed for applications on electric and hybrid cars.”
The range of products for this kind of application include PA 6 and PA 6.6 engineering polymers, such as RADIFLAM® HF and RADIFLAM® FR, halogen- and phosphorous-free products with excellent flame-retardant characteristics, which are used primarily for battery system components and power management units (e.g., inverters).RadiciGroup automotive Chinaplas 2019

What is more, materials developed for charging plugs and sockets, which must ensure durability and safety.

In an electric car, the heating and air-conditioning management system must be especially efficient to optimize batteryusage and the working of many other parts.

Thus, besides traditional polyamides, RadiciGroup offers long molecular chain polyamides for applications requiring enhanced performance: biobased
PA 6.10 (Radilon® D – PA 6.12 Radilon® DT) to PPA (Radilon® Aestus T1) and PPS
(Raditeck® P).

These are polymers for engineering applications with very high chemical resistance
and, in the case of Raditeck® P, excellent intrinsic flame resistance, as well.

“We are working on new flame-resistant products,” Mr. Spini continued, “to be used for components under electrical voltage, which, for safety considerations, must be orange in colour.

The colour mustremain stable during long exposure in unfavourable conditions and high temperatures.”
Safety is the keyword that characterizes RadiciGroup brand products for the electrical/electronics sector: an expanding range of UL-approved products that safeguard the environmentand are formulated to give components a long service life and enhanced safety.RadiciGroup automotive Chinaplas 2019

These materialsfeature excellent properties such as high flame resistance, insulation, UV resistance and more.
Among the most important electrical segments making use of Radilon® and Radiflam® are power distribution systems and industrial control systems, where components such as plugs, sockets, switches, connectors and others are needed.

The water, heating and sanitary systems market has experienced considerable growth drivenby new civil and industrial construction.

RadiciGroup High Performance Polymers has released PA6.6 products (Radilon® A versions suitable for drinking water contact) and more recently PA 6.12products (hydrolysis resistant Radilon® DT).

For more critical applications where parts are in contact with water at temperatures of up to 85°C, RadiciGroup offers KTW-certified PPA Radilon®
Aestus products.
“Transport is another attractive sector for us, considering the strong development China is experiencing,” Mr. Spini concluded.

“Our high-viscosity and glass-fibre reinforced polyamide-based materials are used to make components, such as rail fastening systems, insulating plates and other structural parts, for which good performance characteristics are an essential requirement.”

-Why China Hasn’t Slapped Tariffs On U.S. Oil Imports

The United States has quickly become one of the top crude producers in the world thanks to the shale boom fueled by the shale oil and gas powerhouse that is West Texas’ Permian Basin.

In fact, the U.S. is on track to overtake Saudi Arabia as the world’s leading exporter of oil, natural gas liquids and petroleum products by the end of the year in a development very, very few could have predicted.

At the same time that the U.S. has risen to the top of the global oil production game to become the fastest-growing oil producer in the world, China has also broken its own records to become the fastest-growing oil consumer in the world.

-Plastic furniture manufacturers adopt PP

According to a recent study, increasing demand for low-cost, lightweight and durable furniture is driving end-users to adopt plastic instead of traditional, wooden or metal.

Ongoing developments in engineered plastics and growing focus on recyclable plastics will remain instrumental in shaping the future of the plastic furniture market.

The study estimates that developing countries in South Asia will account for approximately 32 per cent revenue share of the market in 2019. Increasing growth of the construction industry and increasing disposable income is mainly attributed to the surge in demand for plastic furniture in the region.

Manufacturers are introducing unique designs at affordable prices to tap the sales potential in developing nations in the region. Polymers Petrochemicals Carbon Fibres

-Unilever to use ‘detectable’ black plastic in packaging

Consumer goods company Unilever is to use a ‘detectable’ black pigment in plastic packaging for its TRESemmé and Lynx cosmetic product brands, to enable the material to be sorted for recycling in MRFs.

Unilever says it will phase in the use of the new polymer on its black High Density Polyethelyne (HDPE) bottles for packaging in the two brands this year – equating to a total of around 2,500 tonnes of the material.

-Sonoco Alcore to display EcoSPAN textile cores at ITMA20

Sonoco Alcore will debut Sonoco’s new, patented EcoSPAN engineered textile cores to global manufacturers at ITMA 2019 exhibition, in hall 7, stand D113. The leading textile and garment technology exhibition will be held from June 20-26, 2019, in Barcelona, Spain. Sonoco Alcore is a world-class technological leader of the paper tube and core industry.

Sonoco’s EcoSPAN technology creates a tailored friction surface to drive optimal performance in the demanding realm of Spandex yarn production. Unlike current Spandex yarn cores that use a film-based material on the outer surface, which creates friction-driven transfer problems and minimises the ability for customisation, EcoSPAN cores use a patented, customisable, aqueous coating, eliminating the need for additional film materials on the outer surface.

-Focus on Industry 4.0 at ITMA 2019

The future of the textiles industry is more and more determined by Industry 4.0, which has many dimensions and possible fields of application. In three of them (smart services, operations and factory), key solutions are provided by the machinery industry. The other ones from smart textile products, marketing and sales, employees up to strategy and organisation are specific know-how issues for textiles mills.

At the ITMA 2019 in Barcelona, next month, visitors will have the chance to see how Industry 4.0 solutions are impacting the textiles process chain. Six weeks prior to the show, Nicolai Strauch, press officer of the VDMA Textile Machinery Association, Germany, spoke to experts of VDMA member companies about their products and services with regard to digitisation and Industry 4.0.

Vietnam-Russia economic and trade relations have been growing continuously over the past years, according to the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT).

Vietnam and Russia established a strategic partnership in 2001 and upgraded it to the level of comprehensive strategic partnership in 2012.

Bilateral trade enjoyed a strong surge as the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU)-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (FTA) took effect in October 2016.
