Sealing inspection. The Basler Vario inspection system inspects different circular parts in order to measure dimensions and to detect surface defects, according to the company's four-page, four-color brochure. Modules described can be combined for the special requirements of each individual product. The mechanical system is specially designed to handle form-stable mass rubber products. The dimensional sensor measures the ID/OD or the cross-section with high precision, according to the literature. (Basler Vision Technologies)

Urethanes. An eight-page, full-color brochure presents the features and benefits of the company's thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPUs) for medical and surgical devices. Advantages such as durability, fabricability, ease of disposal and the absence of plasticizers are said to make these TPUs increasingly popular for high-performance products such as critical "can't fail" medical situations, according to the literature. The brochure describes the properties and performance characteristics of urethane, and compares TPU to other commonly used flexible materials such as PVC. Tables compare the properties of these materials. (Stevens Urethane)

Acrylonitrile-butadiene polymers. This producer of synthetic rubbers for the tire and automotive industry, as well as technical goods production, offers its newsletter highlighting Europrene N Green acrylonitrile-butadiene polymers. These products are said to represent an advanced technical solution for demanding applications. The Green grade is achieved by an intensive washing process during the polymer finishing, therefore producing a cleaner polymer, according to the literature. Since the backbone of the polymer has not changed, customers who are currently using Europrene N grades can substitute the Green grades. (EniChem Americas)

Laboratory extruder. The PolyDrive extruder, featured in a six-page, four-color, fold-out brochure, is developed to provide solutions for extrusion applications. Combined with the specific accessories, such as the extruder barrel, screws, dies, post-extrusion units and feeding units, it provides the optimum answer for applications concerned with the extrusion of polymers and rubber, according to the literature. Equipped with a self-explanatory operating concept, as well as "intelligent" electronics, PolyDrive is designed to be used as a robust solution for everyday usage. The extrusion parameters are stored after entry and can be called up at the touch of a button from that moment on. The extrusion process can be followed on the large-scale display. (Haake)

Thermoplastic vulcanizates. Uniprene thermoplastic vulcanizates are featured in a six-page, four-color, fold-out brochure. Uniprene is a specially designed thermoplastic vulcanizate which contains a highly crosslinked elastomeric phase finely dispersed in a thermoplastic matrix. The crosslinked elastomeric phase provides functional performance similar to vulcanized rubber, while the thermoplastic phase provides the processability of plastics. The literature highlights typical applications, functional characteristics and available grades of Uniprene. (Teknor Apex)

Polyurethane additives. Two product bulletins highlight the company's Dabco 2039 catalyst and Dabco DC4000 silicone surfactant, both of which are designed for application in flexible polyester slabstock foams. The bulletin on Dabco 2039 catalyst explains that the catalyst serves as an alternative to less versatile amines, such as N-ethylmorpholine (NEM), N-methylmorpholine (NMM) and benzyldimethylamine (BDMA). Also included is a table showing the relative use level of Dabco 2039 catalyst versus other standard amine catalysts. The product bulletin on Dabco DC4000 surfactant highlights the benefits of the surfactant in a wide variety of polyester foam formulations. The bulletin also contains test formulations and performance data of Dabco DC4000 surfactant in a variety of polyester slabstock foam formulations for industrial and textile applications.
