APT Hosts Seminar on Latest Developments of Milastomer in the Automotive Industry

Advanced Polymer Trading conducted an educational seminar for its customers on the latest developments of Milastomer in the Automotive Industry.Advanced Polymer Trading and Mitsui conduct Seminar

Advanced Polymer Trading (APT), an international trading company specialising in the world wide trade of rubber, plastics and petrochemicals, is pleased to announce the success of an educational seminar, it conducted in co-operation with Mitsui Chemicals, on the latest developments of Milastomer in the automotive industry.

Milastomer is Mitsui’s Thermoplastic Olefinic Elastomer which is particularly suited for the automotive industry where it is used for interior trims including dash boards and doors.

The customer seminar covered a variety of topics including:

  • Milastomer for automotive sealing profiles applications as a replacement for EPDM rubber.
  • Milastomer for automotive instrument panel skins.
  • Milastomer for airbag covers.

Unlike traditional rubber, Milastomer does not need compounding or vulcanization by the end user and every grade of Milastomer can be molded or extruded similar to polyethylene and polypropylene. Also like PVC, Milastomer has excellent moldability when processed on calendering machines.

APT Launch New Project with Mitsui Chemical Europe and EVAL Europe to Develop New Milk Packaging

Advanced Polymer Trading FZC has launched a new project with Mitsui Chemical Europe and EVAL Europe to develop the usage of ADMER and EVAL in milk packaging.

Advanced Polymer Trading (APT), an international trading company specialising in the world wide trade of rubber, plastics and petrochemicals, has started a new project together with Mitsui Chemical Europe and EVAL Europe to develop new ways of using ADMER and EVAL in milk packaging.

EVAL Europe’s EVOH copolymer resins are particularly suited for food applications where it acts as a functional barrier. Keeping oxygen out, an EVAL layer can preserve the flavour and the quality of the milk and protect sensitive vitamin content.

ADMER adhesive resin, manufactured by Mitsui Chemical Europe, is a functionally modified polyolefin that serves as a tie layer in multilayer applications such as films used for food packaging. These special films contain barrier materials such as EVAL to protect the filling from oxygen, odors and UV-light and thus prolong the shelf-life of the packed goods.

This new venture with Mitsui Chemical Europe and EVAL Europe builds on the existing agreements already in place with APT.
