DuPont™ Zytel® HTNFE170016, Revolutionary Nylon-based Glass Fiber Reinforced Resin
Nylon-based glass fiber reinforced resin

DuPont™ Zytel® HTNFE170016 resin, a nylon-based glass fiber reinforced new material, features strength that can overshadow other general engineering polymers currently applied in laptop covers. With DuPont innovative glass fiber orientation technology and its high flowability property, this new material realizes lighter and thinner laptop designs instantly. In addition, it has fundamentally solved the deformation problem, becoming the ideal choice for bigger laptop cover design. Laptop designers can now make designs unrestrained.

LUXAN K: Exceptional Gloss for Transparent Materials

The new LUXAN K family provides exceptional luster in transparent foods and cosmetic packaging. It also suits automotive interior trim, household appliances, or sports and leisure goods. LUXAN K is exceptional in its high transparency and brilliance. Combining with dyes in particular, they add value to applications based on transparent resins. And they create both see-through and 3D effects. Meantime, LUXAN K combines extraordinary sparkles with high Chroma and unrivalled color intensity. With LUXAN K, shades such as "Piano Black" obtain an unmatched brilliance and convey a touch of sumptuousness. LUXAN K is approved for food contact. It is suitable for polyolefins, PVC and engineer plastics.

Multiple Functional Nano Targeted Enhancement Technologies

Tiangang and Tinaco jointly introduce "Nano Targeted Enhancement Technology (NTET)" and a series of innovative solutions to the plastics industry in CHINAPLAS 2017. This technology is based on nano encapsulation technologies which produce outstanding and unprecedented enhancements to plastics in areas like mechanical properties, anti-yellowing, weatherability, mold prevention, high fog applications, and so on.

As market expands, the electronics & electrical industries are promoting healthier, trendier and cozier life experience to customers by introducing functional novelty to their products, such as degermation in refrigerators, self-cleaning and sterilization in air-conditioners. At the same time, new products and concepts, such as intelligent wearable, VR/AR, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), glasses-free 3D and flexible displays provide significant diversity to the market. The pursuit of multiple functions brings new opportunities and challenges to electronics and electrical industries in their quest for smart manufacturing and CMF (color, materials and furnishing) concepts.

"Smart Manufacturing Technology Zone" to Present Industrial Automation Solutions

Following the "Smart Manufacturing Development Plan (2016-2020)" published in 2016, the electronics and electrical industries will undoubtedly speed up their transformation and upgrading processes. To achieve this goal, manufacturers would need to continually raise their level of automation and smart manufacturing in order to speed up product development and improve their product mix.
