Turkey's Tekla to develop WIT for manufacturing hollow plastic parts

November 22/2011

(BASF) -- Teklas, a Turkish supplier to the automotive industry, has actively pushed the development of water-assisted injection molding technology (WIT) for manufacturing hollow plastic parts. The company has recently started to produce fluid-carrying tubes for automobiles in high volumes from BASFs special Ultramid A3HG6 WIT. This glass fiber reinforced polyamide 66 grade has been developed specifically for WIT, and offers good inside and outside surfaces as well as the required high chemical resistance. The new tubes that Teklas is currently developing for almost all large European automobile manufacturers provide individual conveying of cooling water, air and oil in the engine compartment.

Perspectives of development of the polymers markets, pricing issues and other important aspects will be discussed at The Polymers Summit-2011, which will be held in Moscow on November 30, 2011 at the Ritz Carlton Hotel. The Summit is organized by MRC with the support of ICIS. The main idea of the Summit is to find a "the golden mean" between producers and converters. When producers receive exactly such margin of production, which helps them to invest in production expansion in order to substitute polymers imports, and the converters receive such price of feedstock that helps them to compete imported finished products. The Summit site gives an access to the live video of the Summit, speakers' presentations, as well as opportunities to ask questions or make appointments to any Summit partcipant.
