At CHINAPLAS 2017, Andreas Stuber, the managing director of AKRO-PLASTIC, told CPRJ that AKRO had a very strong growth in 2016,

“Till year 2016, AKRO worldwide annual production capacity achieves 150,000 ton and as for China, we will complete the phase-III production in Suzhou this June, and Suzhou plant will reach an annual output of 15,000 tons, which will better satisfy our customers’ needs in quality, prices and supply cycles of special materials!”

Andreas Stuber believed that the automotive market in China is still going to grow but there will be more and more electrical cars.

“These cars will require more tailor-made specialty rather than standard grades chemicals. AKRO will continue to invest on our innovation, and we put about 35% of the annual revenues for our innovation investment. With the ICX® (global identical compounding) technology, we can ensure the low variance of different product batches, even if the products are manufactured from different countries, in different periods!”

AKRO-PLASTIC brought ICF and PST for CHINAPLAS 2017.

ICF is a new carbon fibre reinforced type series based on PA6, PA 6.6, PK, PPA and partially aromatic CoPA (AKROLOY® PA) combines high strength with lower density at an attractive price. The compounds are finished with a carbon fibre content of 10 % to 40 %.

Beyond that, the product also includes outstanding properties as good tribological properties (low-wear), good electrical conductivity, good thermal conductivity, excellent stiffness and flexural stiffness, good flexural stress, etc.

And this application just won the award jointed given by “Auto and Parts” and “TUV” as “The Most Popular Innovative Lightweight Application in Auto Industry”.

This time, the ICF material was displayed through application on clutch pedal and centre console.

Clutch pedal can be manufactured in water-injection process, in partnership with Engel, PME Fluidtec and Moldetipo, able to reduce the weight of the component by 10 % whilst achieving improved mechanical values.

Centre console made by 10 % ICF reinforced PA 6.6, can reduce 13% of the weight, with comparable stiffnesses.

PST (Plasma-SealTight®) developed by Plasmatreat and AKRO-PLASTIC represents a completely new approach to obtaining a media-tight and very strongly bonded hybrid compound.

This new industrial solution offers a process which precisely matches the composition of a plasma polymer layer generated under atmospheric pressure to the recipe for the plastic compound and the process parameters to create a long-time stable, mediatight bond of the injection-moulded part.
