-New generation of hydrolysis-stabilized PBT compounds unveiled

Compounds based on polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) need greater resistance to hydrolysis and aging in hot and humid environments when used in automobiles. For instance, the high electrical power densities of high-voltage systems in electric vehicles lead to greater temperature loads. Furthermore, additional thermal loads arise when charging the battery. In combustion engines, there is a trend towards turbocharged engines, which results in increased temperatures in the engine compartment.

When offered a choice between two packaging options for the same quality of product, a huge majority across Europe – nine in ten respondents (91.5%) – said they would choose the packaging with 85% less plastic. When asked if they would pay a 12½% premium for this reduced-plastic packaging option, 62% of respondents said they were willing to do so.

These are just some of the results emerging from new research from DS Smith, Europe’s leading sustainable packaging company, published today.

-Zero-tolerance quality for nonwovens at Techtextil India

Some sweet-toothed individuals might dream of a room full of candy floss. The fairground treat certainly has its appeal, but what if you had to find an object as thin as a one cent coin hidden inside the sugary mass? A sticky problem, for sure.Petrochemical Bioparaxylene PEF

Now, let’s imagine we are dealing with tufts of man-made fibre instead, the kind used as feedstock for spunlaced nonwovens. This is when things get serious – the most critical medical and hygiene applications for these products demand zero-tolerance of any contamination fragments larger than 1 mm. Still a big task, yet the Uster Jossi fibre cleaning system has the solution, finding and ejecting unwanted substances in the blink of an eye, manufacturer Uster explains.
