CREPIM set up a Fast compounding and pilot platform

Monday 15 february 2016

Fast compounding platform and pilot platform to produce short batches of FR tailor made compounds up to 500 kg

Crepim has been developing for years FR polymer based formulation to help our partner to upgrade the formulation according to market requirements. We have now a database of 80 formulations, which stands for a technical base to design quickly tailor made formulation for customers.

More and more our partners need to turn over their customers a demonstrator, which fits with the end use applications. That means not only a tailor made recipe and a fire test report, but also few kgs of FR compound to demonstrate the processability through real scale industrial tools - injection molding for most of our thermoplastic based development

This is the hard point because the supplier market is not really flexible to delivers low amounts of compounded polymers. And this lack of solution can compromise the demonstration pilot phase, which secures the couple product & process

Crepim has decided to tackle this problematic by completing our offer. Up to know, Crepim uses a fast compounding platform with low scale compounding machineries to develop proactively the FR compound. The return ticket between development and testing has always been a success guarantee within short time laps

Our offer figures now two levels

1: A« fast screening compounding » plateform to develop Taylor made FR compounds.

·         Formulation adjustments and optimization.

o   PP, PC, PA 6 & 6 6....

o   PC VO reach compliant

o   PP M2 halogen free

o   PU V0 halogen free

o   ABS/PC, PET…

·         Plastic materials compatibility.

·         New additives and fillers for plastics incorporation.

·         Fillers dispersion studies.

Also note that Crepim is in deeply connected to EFRA and PINFA and we propose only mature, worldwide sourced and REACH compliant Fire retardant

 

2: Pilot platform with the ability to produce short batches of special compounds up to 500 kg to accelerate the scale up & industrialization,

·         Securing of the industrialization process with low marginal cost added

·         Proactive service and quick delivering of the compound

This offer aims to give you more versatility in your product development by controlling the downstream phase. By investigation process ability of deliver the right material with the right properties

Feel free to use our polymeric expertise for accelerating you development or for revitalizing you frozen projects. Our skills feature a full range of thermoplastic application
