A Wide Range of Plastics Compounds Available Worldwide
K.D. Feddersen offers a large plastics portfolio. The graphic shows you the most important products and their basic features:
Starting with base polymers such as ABS (acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene) and reinforced PP (polypropylene) through our engineering plastics such as PP compounds, PA (polyamide), PK (polyketone) or PC (polycarbonate) to high-performance plastics with outstanding properties such as PEEK (polyetheretherketone), LCP (liquid crystal polymers), PPA (polyphthalamide) and PPS (polyphenylene sulphide), to name but a few. Our portfolio includes all grades of amorphous or semi-crystalline polymers with a continuous service temperature (RTI/TI) of 50 to 240 °C.
Polymers, engineering plastics, high-performance plastics
Polycarbonate Acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene Blend
Acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) and blends, for example with polycarbonate (PC), have good heat resistance, dimensional accuracy and good flow properties. They are used, for example, in automotive interiors.
Engineering plastics compounds which are characterised by outstanding mechanical properties, heat resistance, high tenacity and wear resistance.
Polyphthalamide and Blends
With its high heat resistance, low moisture absorption and good dimensional accuracy, PPA is ideal for applications with high thermal stresses, such as function elements in the engine compartment.
High-temperature polymer with a continuous service temperature of 240 °C, very good hydrolysis resistance and very good mechanical and chemical resistance. The areas of use include demanding technical applications, e.g. in the aerospace industry. Inherently flame-retardant (UL V-0).
Liquid Crystal Polymers
Liquid crystalline polymers with very good mechanical properties. Thin-walled precision applications made of LCP, e.g. in scales or medical devices, retain their shape even in contact with water or organic solvents, thanks to their hydrolysis and chemical resistance. Inherently flame-retardant (UL V-0).
The semi-crystalline copolymer polyoxymethylene has high dimensional stability, good sliding behaviour and high stiffness, making it suitable for cogwheels as well as sliding and guide elements, for example.
Polybutylene Terephthalate and Blends
Versatile thermoplastic material, which is particularly characterised by very high dimensional accuracy, stiffness and strength as well as good electrical properties. Areas of application are e.g. connectors or housings in the electrical and electronics industry.
Unique engineering plastic with very good chemical resistance, low moisture absorption and very good resilience. Polyketone is often used for technical components in mechanical engineering and the automotive industry.
Semi-crystalline high-temperature plastic with high stiffness, strength and creep resistance as well as resistance to almost all solvents, acids and alkalis. It is used for highly stressed moulded parts, e.g. in the automotive sector. Inherently flame-retardant (UL V-0).
Amorphous thermoplastic material, distinguished by its mechanical and chemical properties. ABS products are easy to process and are suitable for painting, printing and electroplating.
Polystyrene with outstanding electrical performance that benefits from rapid solidification during cooling and high heat resistance. The semi-crystalline sPS is used, for example, in automotive electrics for cooling water management and in sanitary equipment.
Long fibre Reinforced Thermoplastics
Compounds reinforced with long glass fibres achieve at least twice the impact strength and 2 to 3 times the notched impact strength of short fibre compounds. Applications are mostly demanding technical applications at higher temperatures.
Polypropylene is a versatile semi-crystalline thermoplastic with a very low density. As a compound, it is low-shrinkage, scratch-resistant and low-emission, making it suitable for automotive interior applications.
