Kemgard® Smoke Suppressants for Rigid and Flexible PVC Applications the Talk of AMI’s PVC Formulation Conference

David Reece, Huber’s Thermoplastics Technology Manager, begins his engaging and informative discussion on the effectiveness of Kemgard® smoke suppressants in rigid and flexible PVC applications.

 

 

We consider it quite an honor and privilege when selected to speak and present a technical paper and information about our product offerings and technology at events such as trade shows and conferences.

Such was the case this week in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (U.S.), as David Reece, Huber’s Thermoplastics Technology Manager, was selected to present to more than 150 attendees at Applied Market Information’s (AMI) PVC Formulation Conference.  The annual two-day program held at The Westin Conference Center featured technical presentations from experts​ covering global trends in PVC technology, including the latest advances in a range of PVC additives like functional extenders and fillers.

David’s engaging and informative talk focused on our exclusive line of Kemgard® molybdate smoke suppressants, which are cost-effective and manufactured by patented processes in which molybdates are precipitated on an inert core.  This “coated core” approach makes more efficient use of the molybdate species by maximizing the active surface area at a much lower cost than pure molybdate chemicals, such as ammonium octamolybdate (AOM).  David reviewed new and interesting data about the effectiveness of our Kemgard products in the most demanding rigid and flexible PVC applications.

Annual Trade Show and Conference Schedule Begins in Charleston with 2019 SPE TOPCON

Our very busy 2019 trade show and conference schedule is off to a fast and productive start in Charleston, South Carolina (U.S.), as we’re live at the Belmond Charleston Center Hotel exhibiting at the Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) Thermoset Topical Conference (TOPCON).  A key annual stop, we have the opportunity to visit with technical experts from throughout the thermoset industry to discuss our halogen-free fire retardant additives and ground calcium carbonate extenders.

There’s been plenty of interest in our exclusive MoldX® optimized alumina trihydrate (ATH) products, which offer the thermoset formulator very high loadings and the advantage of lower viscosity while meeting the most stringent fire and flame retardance (FR) requirements.  At TOPCON, we’re promoting four MoldX optimized ATH grades:

 

  • MoldX® A400
  • MoldX® A110
  • MoldX® S45
  • MoldX® P18

Hubercarb® W4 ground calcium carbonate is also a high performance mineral in thermoset applications offering a rounded particle shape with chalk-like softness.  Two key advantages of the grade are it contains very low levels of crystalline silica along with low leachable chloride content.  It is milled from a unique micritic limestone ore and is one of the purest forms of GCC available.  For more information about the Hubercarb W4 grade, click here.

We’re excited and pleased about the success we’ve achieved this week at TOPCON and can’t wait to see you soon in all parts of the world as we exhibit and have the opportunity to personally meet you and discuss our product offerings which are backed by superior technical service with unsurpassed customer care second-to-none.  For samples of any of our products, contact us today!

Showcasing Our Halogen-Free Fire Retardant Additives and Martoxid® TM Thermally Conductive Fillers at the SPE Composites Conference & Exhibition (ACCE)

This week we are excited and pleased to be in Novi, Michigan, just outside of Detroit exhibiting at the Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) Automotive Composites Conference & Exhibition (ACCE).

The automotive industry is incredibly intriguing to us as the technology today changes practically on a daily basis and the future is no doubt unlimited.  We are embracing this potential by educating automotive manufacturers and others attending ACCE about our Halogen-Free Fire Retardant Additives and Martoxid® TM Thermally Conductive Fillers and how they can provide formulation benefits in a variety of applications.

We offer a unique alternative in optimizing thermal management for car and truck batteries and other automotive parts with our exclusive series of Martoxid® TM Thermally Conductive Fillers.  This generation of unique, high performing aluminum oxide additives is based on innovations to meet controlled and superior heat dissipation requirements.  Our alumina-based solutions are designed to function as a thermally conductive and electrically insulative material.

In addition and for almost four decades, Huber has been a trusted and global supplier of Alumina Trihydrate (ATH) and Magnesium Hydroxide (MDH) .  As an example, our MoldX® A400 Optimized ATH is an individual Non-Halogen Fire Retardant Additive grade to consider in automotive which allows for lower loading levels while delivering superior fire retardance.
