ROWALID®-LS Masterbatches Laser Marking for Thermoplastics

BETTER WITH THAN WITHOUT
The majority of thermoplastics cannot be marked economically sufficient without the addition of special laser additives. ROWALID®-LS masterbatches enable laser marking of thermoplastics. The special additives increase the absorption ability of the polymer matrix or change color themselves (intrinsic effect) and thus create a permanent change in color. A whitish/light grey marking is achieved by foaming, whereas carbonization or coloring of the additive results in a dark/dark grey marking. By combining special additives and colorants even colored markings can be achieved.

FAST AND DURABLE
ROWALID®-LS masterbatches are optimized for infrared lasers with a wavelength of 1064 nm (neodymium-doped yttrium-ortho-vanadate laser (Nd:YVO) and neodymium-doped yttrium-aluminum-granate laser (Nd:YAG)). The markings are durable and chemically inert. The marking process happens quickly, precisely and contact free and can easily be reproduced. Another advantage compared to standard printing processes is the flexibility.

INDIVIDUALLY DEVELOPED FOR MANY APPLICATIONS
Almost all thermoplastics, e. g. PE, PP, PS, PA, PC, PMMA, PBT, PET, ABS and TPU can be marked this way, without significant change of other properties. The laser writeability can be easily combined with e. g. color or UV protection. Like all ROWA Masterbatch products ROWALID®-LS can be specifically matched according to the customer’s requirements, no matter if the application is fonts on power plugs, bar codes on animal ear tags or logos on automotive switches. Regulatory specifications and conformities like toy application, food contact or absence of antimony can be taken into account on request. ROWA Masterbatch is able to objectively measure the quality of the marking and determine the ideal parameters like frequency and marking speed in their own laser center. For this a Nd:YVO marking laser manufactured by the company Photonenwerke is used.

Optimized for the future: Improving the scratch resistance of PMMA with ROWALID SR Masterbatches

The many positive properties of acrylic glass (polymethyl methacrylate, abbreviated PMMA) have made it very popular and it is used in various industries. ROWA Masterbatch has improved the scratch resistance further enriching this valuable plastic.

Pinneberg/Germany, September 6th, 2019 – Acrylic glass is frequently used in outdoor applications such as windows and facades and to create advertising spaces and company signs. Indoors it is used for room dividers, acrylic glass furniture and various decorative products. But the demand for this valuable plastic from the automotive industry, aviation technology and jewelry production is also increasing - and for good reasons:
Compared to silicate glass, acrylic glass weighs half as much and is highly shatter resistant and stable. It is a transparent and UV-stable plastic, thermally insulating and frost and heat-resistant. When used outdoors PMMA can also withstand the effects of weathering for many years without yellowing or becoming brittle.
 
These sustainable properties will ensure that the plastic will be used in ever increasing applications and is regarded as a trend-setting material – but unfortunately it has one disadvantage compared to glass; its low scratch resistance. However, this scratch resistance can now be significantly increased by a polymer-specific masterbatch.

Various test methods have been developed to assess the scratch resistance of molded plastic parts depending on the application and type of surface. ROWA Masterbatch chose the cross-hatch test, in which a test probe is guided over the surface at defined grid spacing whilst a controlled force is applied. The width, depth and visibility of the scratches produced by the probe are then used to assess scratch resistance. A microscopic and visual evaluation showed that the previously high scratch resistance of PMMA (PMMA has the highest scratch resistance of all thermoplastics) can be significantly improved using ROWALID SR Masterbatches. Customers can use this new anti-scratch masterbatch as an additive to their standard products.

Flexible lighting design with high luminous efficacy

Light-scattering masterbatches for thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPU): ROWA Masterbatch, manufacturer of polymer-specific masterbatches, puts a sparkle in the eyes of their customer with the new ROWALID® products.

Pinneberg/Germany, September 19th, 2019 - The popularity of LED lighting has made translucent plastics increasingly important for luminaire covers. The covers are used to diffuse the light emitted by the point-shaped luminaires as uniformly as possible, making the point-shaped light sources (hot spots) invisible by high light diffusion. At the same time, the user naturally wants the highest possible luminous efficacy.

The use of suitable materials can save on the number of luminaires and energy. With ROWALID® LDX masterbatches, components can be uniformly illuminated with a silky matt finish at maximum luminous efficacy without the hot spots shining through.

ROWA Masterbatch has so far successfully provided ROWALID® LD and ROWALID® LDX products for hard plastics such as polycarbonate, polymethylmethacrylate and polystyrene. New additions to the portfolio are ROWALID® LD and ROWALID® LDX products for thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPU). The flexibility of these soft thermoplastic elastomers enables new applications in lighting design.

The e-mobility megatrend: ROWA Masterbatch is along for the ride

It is becoming increasingly obvious in the everyday street scene: E-Mobility is one of the big, maybe even the biggest megatrend. Whether for use as private cars, buses, shuttle service or sharing vehicles, different types of electric vehicles are on the road in both local and long-distance traffic – and more and more often ROWA Masterbatch is along for the ride.

Pinneberg/Germany, September 1st, 2019 – The Federal Motor Transport Authority has estimated that in Germany alone there are currently over 200,000 electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles. And this is just the beginning. In the coming years the automotive industry plans to launch numerous battery-powered cars and plug-in hybrids onto the market. At the end of 2018 there were 60 electric car models available on the European market. The Transport & Environment Organization expect this figure to rise to 214 by 2021, and by 2025 around 22 percent of all new cars will be plug in vehicles. These estimates illustrate the megatrend towards e-mobility and also highlight the challenges and opportunities facing suppliers and material producers.

ROWA Masterbatch has been well positioned in this field for a long time. The company has polymer-specific solutions for more or less all plastics; currently 160 different polymer carriers are in use. ROWA Masterbatch is already capable of meeting new, customer-specific requirements and product needs coming from the e-mobility market environment. One example is PBT plastics, which are used for the orange color identification of high voltage. High temperature resistant thermoplastics such as PA66, PPA, PPS, etc. are also in this field.

Another use for ROWALID® Masterbatches in electric vehicles is for the on-board electrical systems, where cable harnesses are installed using connectors. These connectors are produced in corresponding signal colors to ensure simple, error-free connection. The most common plastics are PBT and TPU. ROWA Masterbatch already supplies the required colors used in this sector. Polymer-specific color concentrates can be produced within a very short time for the desired custom color coding of specific polymers used for electric car components. ROWA Masterbatch is well prepared for the expected increasing demand for special solutions for the automotive industry - the future is now!
