Adhesives & Sealants Headlines


Sartomer Co. has announced the opening of a plastics laboratory to help further develop its global plastics business. The lab, located at the company’s Exton, PA, headquarters, is dedicated to research and development of functional additives for plastic applications.

The new lab allows Sartomer chemists to perform full pellet-to-pellet conversion, and to mold and test thermoplastics up to 400ºC. The facility includes a C.W. Brabender® extruder; a Morgan-Press molder; an Instron® POE2000 impact tester; an Instron tensile tester; a TA Instruments dynamic mechanical analyzer; a TA instruments differential scanning calorimeter; and a TA Instruments rheometer.

Sartomer’s Krasol®, Ricon® Poly bd® and SMA® resins can be used to modify plastic properties, including adhesion, barrier, compatibility, heat resistance, impact strength, flexibility, dielectric, compression set and melt-flow index. Sartomer will showcase these technologies in booth #45084 (South Hall) at NPE 2009, June 22-26, 2009, in Chicago.
