polyamide glass fiber coloration


With the disappearance of the use of cadmium pigments for environmental and toxicological reasons, the coloring of polyamides charged with glass fibers in yellow, orange, red and green becomes extremely difficult. The new organic molecules hardly resist the characteristics of the charged polyamide (temperature higher 300° C, chemical aggressiveness of the polymer melted, opacity and color of glass fibers).
Our R & D laboratory has developed special formulations to give color to these materials. An extract of these possibilities has been realized in form of a range of colors according to the RAL color chart. The base of these illustrations is PA6 FV30.

NEW INVESTMENT


Elixance acquired new granulation equipment for small batches. This investment corresponds to our desire to offer highly technical products for volumes of less than one ton. With the flexibility and homogeneity of our equipment, this granulation concept will provide color masterbatches for soft materials such as polyurethane (TPU), and additive concentrates of more than 50% such as UV stabilizers or antistats.
Our R & D laboratory is currently working on other families of additives to be included in this concept.

recyclability


"The recyclability of a package is its ability to integrate recycling sector, to an other life. Improving the recyclability of packaging is a strategic eco-design action".
This is the leitmotiv of the Technical Committee for Recycling Plastic Packaging.
Elixance has developed formulations to substitute some of pigments contained in packaging that were not detectable during selective sorting by infrared in disposal site.

Elixance renew the partnership with the Vannes rugby's club


Elixance renew the partnership with the Vannes rugby's club (RCV) for the 2017/2018 season. The dynamism, the spirit of conquest are part of the assets of the game of the Breton team. Values ​​we share, that's why we support it. Enthusiasm wins the crowds at the Rabine stadium. On average, about 7,000 people attend the show.
Angoulême and Bayonne have paid for it in the first two home games.

Reinforced fibers composites for 3D printing



Incorporation of different fillers in some polymer matrices improves the mechanical properties of filaments for 3D Printing. These characteristics can be interesting for injected parts.
 
Please find below some examples of developed materials:
 
On an ABS base reinforced with carbon fibers:
Advantages: lighter weight parts, low distortion during printing, parts less fragile than ABS parts.

On an ABS base reinforced with aramid fibers:
Advantages: lighter weight parts, low distortion, resistance to friction, more resistant to impact than ABS parts.

On a PLA base reinforced with flax fibers:
Advantages : bio-composite combines the ease of printing with excellent mechanical properties (modulus + 48% than ABS and weight gain of 126% than PLA)

On a PET base reinforced with carbon fibers:
Advantages : High tensile modulus up to 4700 MPa. Printed parts extremely robust, can be sanded and worked by standard post printing process. Manufacture of structural parts.

3D printing new materials


3D printing, also called additive manufacturing allow to create objects by stacking plastic layers.
 In production, the challenge of 3D printing is to produce functional pieces, more resistant with the same quality.
In collaboration with U.B.S. (University of South Britain), the Nanovia company for the filament production, and SMM Technology for the prototyping, the goal was to develop functional plastics.
Our recent results allow us to offer several materials categories:
- Bioplastics : Istroflex, flexible biodegradable plastic reinforced with a biobased filler, for the production of blow moulding. PLA reinforced with flax fibers to improve the mechanical properties.
- Fiber reinforced polymers : improvement of mechanical properties of polymers such as ABS, PC, PCTG by reinforcing with recycled carbon fibers.
- Endocrine disruptor : a range of colored materials validated without endocrine disruptor for additive manufacturing of medical product.

3D print is not suitable for all needs, but if your project is compatible, huge gains are possible.

Leistritz Machinery ZSE27
27 Novembre 2015

New operational machinery


Two new operational machines in November in Elixance.

A first line based on a twin-screw Leistritz ZSE 27 Maxx extruder and special cutting elements suitable for different polymers and sizes of pellets. It 's specially optimized to produce colored masterbatches for engineering polymers (POM, PA, PC, PMMA, PBT, PET, TPU).
It will meet the needs of customers for batches 25 to 250kg on these polymer families.

A pilot line based on a twin-screw Leistritz ZSE 27 Maxx extruder longer for the development of new materials.
With its concept of gravimetric and side feeders, it will incorporate multiple vegetable, mineral or fiber fillers during the process and realize reactive extrusion.

This pilot line will be available to customers for their specific developments.
