Americhem has been offering antimicrobial solutions for over 20 years utilizing EPA and BPR registered additives. Recently, Americhem has been developing antiviral masterbatches and compounds for synthetic fibers, nonwovens, and molded articles. The products show strong antiviral properties using a variety of test methods including ISO 18184 and ISO 21702.
Color & Appearance Retention in Engineered Compounds Part 3 will detail the necessary additives and formulations to enhance long term performance in indoor Building and Construction (B&C) applications. These customized polymeric solutions are also developed to achieve other necessary critical to quality (CTQ) properties, such as wear and lubrication.
Polymers can degrade due to environmental stress agents such as oxygen, moisture, heat and UV light over time. They can also develop cracking, crazing, staining, and discoloration from the constant use of hospital-grade disinfectants. We will teach you how engineered compounds with specialized additives can mitigate these major healthcare environmental stresses.
This AEC plant expansion includes the addition of an isolated 20,000 sq. ft. “Clean Compounding” room that will house six new compounding lines in the overall 60,000 sq. ft. expansion. The new clean environment and AEC Customer Design Center, coupled with Americhem’s existing ISO 13485 Certification, gives AEC unique capabilities.
This webinar will take you through the world of Non-Automotive Vehicles, or NAV, and how to balance both appearance and performance through customizing polymeric solutions. Americhem Engineered Compounds, or AEC, will also be illustrating real life case studies from successful applications manufactured for a variety of OEM customers.
Americhem experts come together with other color forecasters once a year to develop this highly coveted color trend report. We take into consideration consumer reports and convert them into industry specific trends. We will be presenting Americhem's 2021 Color Trends presentation as a lead up to our 2022 Color Trends being released in January 2021.
The overriding challenge in controlling color is how to convey accurate measurement correlation at different steps in the supply chain. Our challenge is finding a measurement system that accurately and repeatedly predicts visual perception. This webinar teaches you how to control your color and come out with the right material.
This joint presentation talks about the “new normal” in healthcare settings as it relates to polymeric products. We will be looking at infection mitigation utilizing specialty polymers through chemical resistance improvements and broad sterilization compatibility. We will review several Solvay polymers and discuss how Americhem is licensed to process and modify Solvay polymers for healthcare applications.
