Suzorite® for plastics
The “rite” choice
Naturally occurring micas are excellent ways to improve noise reduction in polymeric plastic compounds. If you’re making plastics for applications like power tool housings, under-the-hood automotive parts, bitumen membranes for use in automotive and domestic appliances, or even water-based vibration damping coatings for trains, boats, buses and aeroplanes, you need noise and vibration damping, without elevated costs.
Suzoriteis a highly lamellar phlogopite mica that will act as a vibration dampener while also improving structural properties and reinforcing the plastic compound. It’s a cheaper alternative than glass fiber and can be used as a partial replacement without affecting stiffness.
Highly lamellar, Suzorite micas generate sound damping performance comparable to, or exceeding, glass fiber – and in all cases superior to those of the virgin resin.
Suzorite has a high aspect ratio, making it ideal for improving mechanical properties of plastic composites, such as flexural modulus and strength, heat deflection and tensile strength. It also improves cross-flow shrinkage and shrinkage isotropy.
And in Polyamide 6 plastics, it is an effective partial replacement for chopped glass fiber.
In addition, Suzorite is ideal for improving noise reduction in polymeric compounds for:
- Power tool housings
- Under-the-hood automotive parts
- Bitumen membranes for use in automotive and domestic appliances
- Water-based structural vibration damping coatings for trains, boats, buses, aeroplanes, cars and many other applications.
