Hpp & specials: new products developed by Lati

LARTON GK/400
It is a reinforced PPS with a high glass fibre and carbon fibre content.

This product was developed to meet important and specific engineering requirements, for places where fire and explosion hazards are absolutely to be avoided. The main characteristics which the product must guarantee are:
  • Excellent flame-retardancy properties (UL 94-V0)
  • Electric semi-conductivity, to discharge static electricity to the ground
  • Excellent chemical resistance, especially for a continuous contact with hydrocarbons
  • High rigidity, to resist to explosion pressures expected at inspection
  • Low shrinkage
  • Excellent dimensional stability

See specific product characteristics in the attached chart

LATIOHM 75/4 PD01 G/20-V0
LATIOHM's peculiar characteristics are reported in the specific technical documentation. This particular material is based on PBT reinforced with glass fibres and special fillers. It is the first product developed by LATI, in the LATIOHM category, which presents both a low electric resistivity and low combustibility. Material has flame retardant properties (UL94-V0) even at low thickness. Possible applications for this material are those fields which generally require:

  • Excellent behaviour in the presence of fire
  • Electric semi-conductivity
  • High rigidity and good mechanical performance in general
  • Good tribologic properties
  • Low shrinkage
  • Good chemical resistance in general
  • Good price/performance compromise

LARAMID K/35

This aromatic polyamide (PPA) is reinforced with special carbon fibres and has been developed for clutch bushes for the automobile industry to be used instead of metal. The main requirements met by this product are superior mechanical performance (rigidity and load resistance) as well as a good thermal conductivity which increases heat dissipation better than other technopolymers. The low hygroscopicity of the basic resin allows a good long term mechanical performance without any particular decline due to the absorption of humidity. Other important characteristics of this material are high thermal resistance and the low linear thermal dilatation.

LATILUB 88/50- 15T G/30

PEEK glass fibre reinforced and lubricated with PTFE. This high performing product has been developed for the automotive industry. Its characteristics can be summarised as follows:

  • High rigidity
  • Excellent thermal resistance
  • High self-lubricating properties, even under load and at high temperatures
  • Intrinsic self-extinguishing properties (UL94-V0)
  • Low shrinkage and low thermal dilatation
  • Excellent chemical resistance
