Food Grade PolymersFood grade polymers are finding more and more applications in food handling and processing equipment for industries and households. Polymers can potentially replace metal, lower material cost, and provide corrosion resistance. Modified food grade polymers using graphite are particularly suitable for demanding applications that require the materials to be conductive or lubricious. Graphite-modified food grade polymers are an …

Polymer Tribology PerformanceSelf-lubricated / tribological polymers are best suited for environments in which liquid lubricants cannot be used, and maintenance-free operation is required. In addition, tribological polymers offer low wear, vibration reduction, design flexibility and lower weight. Self-lubricated polymers have found a wide range of applications in automotive, household and industrial equipment. Fig. 01PEEK Coefficient of Friction and Wear Rate …

Polymer Thermal ConductivityConductive polymers, used for polymer thermal conductivity, are gaining more following in the consumer and automotive electronics applications, be it for lower cost or for weight and size reduction purposes. Modified polymers using graphite are particularly suitable for demanding applications that require the materials to be thermally and electrically conductive. Graphitic additives have proven to impart high thermal …
