During Chinaplas 2010 RadiciGroup is showcasing its portfolio of Radilon® PA6 and PA66 engineering polymers and copolymers, Raditer® PBTs, Heraform® acetal copolymers and Heraflex® TPEs. In addition, the Group is presenting its Radipol® PA6 and PA66 polymers and Radichem® adipic acid, AGS dicarboxylic acid mixture and dicarboxylic acid esters.

Particular focus on Radiflam® and Radilon® engineering plastics for the Electrical/Electronics and Automotive sectors. RadiciGroup's presence in China through its sales unit, Radici Chem (Shanghai) Co. Ltd, and production site, Radici Plastics Suzhou, allows its Plastics Business Area to better meet the needs of its customers worldwide and serve as a reliable partner for its local customers. RadiciGroup Plastics in China offers quality, high technology, efficiency and full customized product development support from start-up to the approval stage. During this year's Chinaplas, particular attention is being given to Radiflam® flame-retardant engineering plastics, which are widely used in the electrical/electronics sector, one of the industries of greatest interest to RadiciGroup.

"As announced last year in November,” said Danilo Micheletti, RadiciGroup Plastics Chief Operating Officer for North America, South America and China, "in the first quarter of 2010 we concluded an important project involving the establishment of our first development and technical support centre based in Suzhou. We transferred the expertise and know-how we have in Europe directly to China and this will allow us to continually improve the local level of service we offer our customers."

“Starting today,” Micheletti continued, "we are able to offer the Chinese market a full range of polyamide 6 and 66 engineering polymers and copolymers, also available in a variety of colours. An important new development, for the most part concluded, is a complete portfolio of PA flame-retardant engineering plastics, including halogen-based Radiflam® AE, phosphorous-based Radiflam® AF and halogen- and phosphorus-free Radiflam® HF. These UL-certified products are ideal for electrical and electronic applications. The market demands a complete range of products, besides polyamides, and for this reason we have enhanced our offering to include PBTs, thermoplastic elastomers and acetal copolymers."

After gaining a firmer foothold in the US market through the significant acquisition of American compounder MDE in the past few months, RadiciGroup Plastics ( aims to strengthen its presence in Asia — China in particular, which is the Group's second most important market after Europe. The acquisition of MDE, a company well entrenched in the automotive industry in America, as well as in Asia, has given RadiciGroup Plastics about 250 active automotive certifications that can be used worldwide. And it is specifically for the automotive sector that RadiciGroup is featuring Radilon® high-performance PA 66 engineering plastics at Chinaplas 2010. This line of products for the most critical components in car cooling systems – radiator tanks, thermostat housings and water hoses – is designed to ensure high thermal resistance when in contact with water and glycols at temperatures that may reach up to 135°C in continuous operation, in the case of the highest performance polymers.
