RTP Company introduces value products

RTP Company : 18 May, 2005  (New Product)
RTP Company's Value Products were developed to provide industry standard solutions when typical properties and price competitiveness are required and quality, speed, and service are essential. These products are immediately available at a lower cost and come with the complete technical support and service you have come to expect from RTP Company. A family of reinforced nylon products has been commercialized. Polypropylene and polycarbonate products will follow soon.
Customers around the world are familiar with RTP Company's ability to develop customized solutions to often complex and challenging problems. RTP Company produces literally thousands of new and unique products every year. RTP Company is now able to leverage its in-depth knowledge of polymers and additives with its Value Product line.

'The new Value Products Division of RTP Company helps to expand our core competency in specialty compounds by making quick, proven, cost effective material solutions available,' commented Kevin Jennings, Value Products Division Manager. 'We want customers to think of RTP Company for all of their reinforced plastics needs, from the most complex technical challenges to the most basic cost-driven projects.'

PEEK Long Fiber Compounds introduced by RTP

Specialty compounder RTP Company expands its Long Fiber product line with Victrex PEEK (Polyetheretherketone). These RTP 2200 Series PEEK Long Fiber Compounds significantly improve impact strength when compared to conventional short fiber PEEK materials, making them ideal for metal replacement applications.

'RTP Company's Long Fiber Compounds are superior to short fiber products because the longer fibers mechanically interlock, which typically reduce warpage and shrinkage and absorb higher stress levels,' commented Bob Wick, Product Manager at RTP Company. 'PEEK Long Fiber Compounds from RTP Company offer several important additional advantages, with the most noteworthy benefit being a significant increase in notched Izod impact.'

Recent tests prove that RTP Company's Long Fiber PEEK 30% glass-filled compounds have more than twice the impact strength of short fiber PEEK 30% glass-filled compounds. Long fiber PEEK containing 40% and 50% long glass fiber also demonstrated dramatic increases over their short glass fiber counterparts. Other expected benefits include improved long-term creep and fatigue and better dimensional stability especially at elevated temperatures.

Long fiber compounds are ideal metal replacement materials. They offer many benefits including weight reduction, increased throughput, part consolidation, reduction of secondary processing, and improved chemical resistance to name a few. PEEK Long Fiber Compounds are suitable for metal replacement applications in the compressor and pump markets where excellent chemical resistance, high mechanical properties, elevated temperatures, and outstanding wear resistance are required.
