Recently, INTCO polystyrene device successfully developed high-quality polystyrene products GPPS, through test, its gloss and impact resistance have achieved the desired results. The trial production, worked out the product formula, the corresponding production process and operation conditions, has laid a foundation that the product enter into the high-end home appliances market for the future.
To increase the market competitiveness of plastic products, INTCO is close to the market research and development of new products. With the use of polystyrene devices, production and equipment conditions have been greatly improved, developing the two new products is aimed at high-quality polystyrene, it is featured by good gloss, impact resistance, heat resistance, stable performance and favored by high-end customers, mainly widely used in insulation panels, picture frames, air-conditioning shell, automotive interior parts, the market demand and the development prospects are considerable.
The production of recycled GPPS is based on the original production of general polystyrene (GPPS) products, its production difficulty is that polystyrene gloss and strength, is a pair of indicators of reverse constraints, the product achieved high Gloss and high impact which is expected to target at the same time.
To ensure the smooth development of new product development, the device carefully formulated "recycled GPPS production program", the new product development team held several meetings on the technical indicators of GPPS and its influencing factors to develop a preliminary raw material, the main process parameters.
In the trial production process, the technical staff kept up with production, the key equipment run every 2 hours, and in accordance with the timely adjustment results of process parameters. Through continuous optimization of the process parameters and formula adjustment, to find the balance of the two aspects of performance with the product gloss and strength, product parameters achieved the established targets.
At present, the product has been sent to the downstream high-end customers for trial. The next step, the device will continue to achieve macro-product performance and microstructure analysis, and further improved based on customer feedback, and continuously improve product quality.
