Particle filled polymers

Polymers are used in a wide range of applications. Additional particles filled in the polymer change the properties significantly and extend the possible applications to a dimension which partly reaches the field of metals:

  • soft- and hard magnetic properties
  • electromagnetic shielding
  • higher electric conductivity
  • higher thermal conductivity
  • improved mechanical properties

As an example Magnetite, filled in a polymer, enables soft magnetic properties and increases the electric conductivity of the compound. Also the thermal conductivity is increased, which changes cooling times during the production process. The production can be done by an ordinary, partly adapted, polymer process chain as extruding and injection moulding.
