To maximize polymer performance in final products by mixing polymers with different properties was the goal of RadiciGroup High Performance Polymers. The result is its new specialty range of products with the brand name Radilon® Mixloy. The matrix material for these new innovative products is polyamide, the flagship product of RadiciGroup, the only industrial group in Europe today capable of controlling its entire production process, from polymer chemicals to engineering polymers, including end-of-life recycling. Totally vertically integrated production allows the Group to realize customer-tailored formulations and develop innovative projects.
With the advent of the 5G era, demand for higher product performance continues to increase, such as more flame retardant and heat resistant materials for communications applications.
In response to this increased demand, CHIMEI has developed PC 545, featuring truly high flame retardant and high heat resistant properties with great processability.
Light guides made from Plexiglas® lend a high-quality appearance to the new premium ATMs from Diebold Nixdorf. Whether in a pedestrian zone or in a shopping mall, advertisement boards are lit up everywhere and compete for the attention of passers-by. Many companies therefore place value on being recognized by their brand colors and, ideally, standing out from the crowd. The same goes for banks. However, while facades and the buildings themselves are generally found in the company colors, most ATMs still look very similar. The next generation of ATMs from Diebold Nixdorf – the DN SeriesTM – will now change this.
