Expandable Graphite …
… is becoming increasingly important in the plastics industry. Under the influence of heat expandable graphite enlarges by a multiple of its original volume.
This property makes expandable graphite from RMC Remacon an excellent flame retardant additive. A particular advantage is the freedom from halogens and heavy metals.
RMC Remacon offers individualized expandable graphite solutions that have been adapted for use in the plastics industry. “Expandable Graphite
Natural & synthetic graphite …
… is used in plastics to improve thermal and electrical conductivity. The layered grid structure and the covalent bonds occurring in it allow electrical conductivity due to free electrons.
These properties are used for example in antistatic plastics. By adding graphite as a filler or additive, the thermal conductivity of plastics can be greatly increased.
In addition, graphites from RMC Remacon can be used as fillers in plastics to reduce the coefficient of friction. The lubricating properties thus achieved are used, for example, in seals or plain bearings.Ultrafine Graphite
