A new high-performance life for plastic waste: Lavergne and Clariant develop halogen-free flame-retardant compounds for electronics based on recycled ocean-bound plastics (OBP)

Laptop computers are a typical end application for Lavergne’s VYPET™ OBP compounds using Clariant’s Exolit® OP flame retardants. 
(Photo: Clariant)Clariant teamed up with Lavergne, a world leader in the production of sustainable engineering resin from recycled plastic, to develop halogen-free flame-retardant polyester compounds made from ocean-bound plastics. With the first grade already commercialised, the advance is supporting demand from major electrical and electronics brand owners for flame retarded post-consumer recyclate grades for equipment parts.

Clariant Masterbatches introduces new colors for high temperature resins used in FAKRA connectors

Available in 14 standard colors, new Clariant masterbatches help ensure performance and color stability in high-temperature engineering plastics. 
(Photo: Clariant)Clariant announces availability of color masterbatches for use in producing new FAKRA high-speed data connectors for next-generation automobiles. The new masterbatches, available in 14 standard colors, were developed by Clariant in cooperation with major global polymer producers. UL-Yellow Card listed, change controlled, and globally available, the color concentrates help ensure performance and color stability in high-temperature engineering plastics – including Nylon 66, polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) and polyphenylene amides (PPA) – used to make the FAKRA connectors.
