PlastFormance develops and distributes plastic compounds with extremly high filler contents, resulting in new material attributes due to metallic and ceramic powder fillings.
All our materials remain capable of injection-moulding
and offer the design freedom our customers are used to.
The PlastFormance allows us to craft compounds with extremely high filler contents while maintaining injection-molding capabilities. In contrast to our competitors, we work with isometric, powdery particles. As a result, the relevant physical properties (e.g. thermal conductivity) are present in all directions of the component, thus enabling completely new areas of application.
The patented PlastFormance technology allows us to craft compounds with unprecedented filler contents whithout giving up on the injection-moulding capability. The developed materials are highly functional as the filler material (e.g. ceramic or metal) transfers its characteristics to the compound while maintaining the processability of the plastic.
Best of both worlds?
Plastic compounds combine the properties of filler (e.g. ceramic or metallic) and plastic in one material. The inheritance of the filler characteristics to the respective compound becomes more pronounced with higher filler content in the finished material.
In existing compounds, the processability, especially the flowability in injection-moulding, decreases rapidly with increasing filling content. The full performance can often not be delivered because the limits of processability have been reached.
The patented PlastFormance technology makes it possible to maintian the injection-moulding capability even at very high filler contents (80 % vol.). Depending on the filler used, it is possible to adjust the desired material properties (e.g. electrical conductivity or insulation). Since we use powdery instead of flaky filler particles, thermal conductivities of up to 20 W/mK can be achieved not only in-plane, but integrally.
At this time our standard product protfolio consists of 8 high-quality compounds which are respectivly to their features and prices superior to competitor products. It shall be emphasized that we are able to develop plastic compounds which have a high thermal conductivity and a high electrical resistance at the same time.
