VAMP TECH, the Italian thermoplastic based compounder specialized in formulating, manufacturing and distribution of flame retardant solutions, is now the partner of Suzhou Double Elephant (苏州双象), one of the largest PMMA manufacturers in China.

VAMP TECH had signed new distribution agreement that came into force on July 1 with Souzhou Double Elephant, and to import the Chinese company’s PMMA in Europe. PMMA is mainly used in an array of optical applications like LCD screens, LED technology, optical fibres, automotive lightings, etc.

At Fakuma fairgrounds, Romeo De Castro, Marketing Director of VAMP TECH spa, explained: “In the past years, there was a shortage of supply of PMMA in Europe, and we see opportunity to distribute PMMA not produced in Europe.”

The company has been distributing PMMA in Italy from the most important European producers since the beginning. With this agreement, it foresees the possibility to enlarge its distribution business activity to other markets outside Italy.

“Some Chinese products are perceived as good quality products in Europe now. We have presence in China with some connections, therefore we form a partnership with Suzhou Double Elephant,” he continued.

Potential in solutions for E-Mobility

Meanwhile, China is a fast growing and important market for VAMP TECH’s own products. At present, 50% of the company’s products are exported to other countries in which China is the third biggest market.

About 75% of VAMP TECH’s products are used in the E&E industry. However, the company finds the demand for high performance materials is on the rise in the automotive industry, and it believes the Chinese market will be a growth engine.

“E-Mobility is one of the major trends in automotive industry, in particular, in China,” said Romeo De Castro. “Our products can be used in battery systems, charging stations, cables, etc., for electric vehicles.”

E-Mobility poses new challenges for plastics. For example, common electrolytes for Li-Ion batteries are flammable under certain conditions, potential sparks or high temperature caused by malfunctioning of the system can cause flames, flammability is thus a major concern.

At Fakuma, VAMP TECH also promoted its capability in developing customized solutions for this application. Beyond flame retardant properties, the product portfolio offers solution to main critical needs like chemical and heat resistance, dimensional stability and crash resistance.

In addition, the company has recently enriched its portfolio of flame retardant solutions for public transportation sector with a new material complying EN 45545-2 norm.

VAMPALLOY 1527 V0 has been appointed with HL3 level for the category R22/R23. The material is a PC/ABS blend which has been specifically designed for the substitution of PVC for the extrusion of cable channels and cable ducts.
