Polyplastics Offers Industry's Broadest Line of Low-VOC Polyacetal Grades for Automotive Interiors
TOKYO, Nov. 14, 2017 /Kyodo JBN-AsiaNet/--

Polyplastics Co., Ltd. offers the industry's most extensive range of 
polyoxymethylene (POM) resin grades with low-VOC emissions for the production 
of automotive interiors. These DURACON (R) low-VOC acetal grades are 
specifically designed to meet the latest regulations governing the 
concentration of VOCs in automotive interiors.

Polyplastics' low-VOC grades enable its customers to produce molded parts that 
conform to today's regulatory requirements for automotive interiors. These 
materials also contribute to an improved plant environment thanks to a 
reduction in the quantity of VOC emissions at the molding site, as well as a 
reduction in mold deposits which cuts the frequency of mold maintenance. The 
company utilizes technology which reduces the quantity of residual formaldehyde 
within resin pellets through the use of optimal stabilizers and scavengers.

Polyplastics' low-VOC line includes DURACON (R) M90-45LV -- an improved 
weather-resistant grade. It exhibits an extremely low quantity of released 
formaldehyde compared to competing grades. DURACON (R) M90-45LV features 
improved weather resistance which delays deterioration caused by ultraviolet 
light and the corresponding degradation of physical properties.

Another low-VOC grade is NW-02LV, a high-sliding material which provides 
excellent friction and abrasion characteristics and low-sliding noise. Other 
low-VOC resins include a glass-reinforced grade (GH-25LV), a low-gloss offering 
(LU-02LV), and an impact-resistant grade (TF-10LV). DURACON (R) TR-20LV is a 
high-rigidity/low-warpage grade while DURACON (R) M270LV is a high-flow 
material.

DURACON (R) low-VOC grades are also targeted at non-automotive applications 
such as office automation equipment. The downsizing of PCs, photocopying 
machines and projectors has led to rising internal temperatures, creating 
potential for the release of larger quantities of VOCs.
