Polymer Technology & Services LLC has broadened its involvement in engineering grade polystyrene through a new arrangement with Idemitsu Group of Chiba, Japan.
Idemitsu is consolidating its distribution and market support with Polymer Technology to capitalize on the latter company's technical expertise and applications experience. The key Idemitsu polymer affected by the arrangement is Xarec SPS, a high performance syndiotactic polystyrene.
Xarec SPS is a non-polar engineering thermoplastic with high heat and chemical resistance. Its non-polar nature gives it exceptional stability in the presence of water. The polymer is widely molded into parts for automotive, electrical/electronic, medical and water contact components.
Polymer Technology of Murfreesboro, Tenn., has been distributing Xarec SPS compounds for more than 13 years but now will have more capability to supply custom blends tailored to specific applications. Idemitsu recently retooled its Xarec SPS production plant in Chiba, Japan. Polymer Technology produces and distributes an array of engineering resins.
