The new generation expandable graphite

by Angelina Schöffel, June 2020
Until now, the starting temperature of max. 230 °C has been limited expandable graphite for the use in high-temperature polymers such as polyamide. With our new generation expandable graphite GHL PX 95 HT 270, we have been able to develop a new expandable graphite quality that shows its protective characteristic from 270°C. 

Conference Polyamide 2020

10. - 11. November 2020 in Würzburg
Components made of PA are now taken for granted in the automotive industry - e-mobility and new applications are reshuffling the cards for polyamide nowadays. The SKZ Polyamide engages new topics around raw material supply chains, new developments and new, exciting applications.

We will be giving a presentation on expandable graphite as a halogen-free flame retardant for polyamides and are looking forward to an exciting exchange with you.
