DIC.PPS & Primef®

DIC.PPS & Primef® compounds are valued for their excellent resistance to heat and chemicals combined with outstanding low creep behaviour. They are inherently non-flammable, eliminating the need for flame retardants. This unique combination of properties enables engineers to realize significant cost savings leading to an ever increasing demand in automotive, E/E and appliance markets.

Unlike many global competitors, DIC employs proprietary state-of-the-art manufacturing technology for crosslinked / branched and linear PPS polymer and to perform downstream custom compounding of specialized product grades containing glass fiber, carbon fiber, mineral fillers and impact modifiers – to name only a few.

DIC Develops World's First PPS Compound for Laser Direct Structuring

DIC Corporation has developed and commercialized the world’s first PPS injection molding compound for Laser Direct Structuring (LDS) technology. This process allows for selective metal plating of three-dimensional (3D) mechatronic parts. LPKF Laser & Electronics, a German-based laser manufacturer, recently tested and approved DIC’s new PPS compound for use in LDS technology.

Molded Interconnect Device (MID) technology integrates electrical and mechanical functionality within a single construction unit. The direct application of conductor tracks on 3D parts completes conventional PCB (Printed Circuit Board) technology by adding another level of design freedom.

LPKF’s Laser Direct Structuring is a commonly used MID technology. The 3D circuit carrier is injection molded from a modified compound which allows for laser activation and the successive metallization of the conductor tracks on the surface.

The newly developed DIC.PPS LP-150-LDS is the world’s first LDS-PPS registered and listed by LPKF. This compound offers significant advantages for LDS applications which require high thermal and chemical resistance as well as dimensional stability. The compound provides additional benefits such as weight, space and cost savings through high design flexibility.

DIC.PPS LP-150-LDS bridges the gap between conventional engineering plastics, such as nylon, to more expensive high-temperature polymers, including LCP or PEEK.

DIC to Increase its PPS Compounding Capacity to maintain Leading Global Market Share for PPS Compounds

Tokyo, Japan – The DIC Corporation recently announced the start of Polyphenylene Sulfide (PPS) compounding in Zhangjiagang, People’s Republic of China. Annual production capacity will be 6,000 tons.

As the global demand for PPS compounds increases 6-8% annually, this new facility will enable DIC to meet new demand as worldwide manufacturers transfer production to China.

DIC.PPS compounds are valued for their excellent resistance to heat and chemicals as well as outstanding low creep behaviour. This unique combination of properties enables engineers to realize significant cost savings which lead to new applications in the automotive, E/E and appliance market segments. DIC.PPS compounds are inherently non-flammable, eliminating the need for chemical flame retardants, many of which have been banned to meet worldwide environmental standards.

Production at the new plant in Zhangjiagang will increase DIC’s global PPS compounding capacity to approximately 40,000 tons annually.  In the coming years, DIC expects its share of China’s PPS compounds market, currently 20%, to surpass 35% and further reinforce the corporation’s leading global market position.

DIC Establishes European PPS Technical Centre

Tokyo, Japan - DIC Corporation is currently establishing a new technical facility in Europe for Polyphenylene Sulfide (PPS). The new laboratory will provide technical support to our European PPS customers and facilitate the continued growth of PPS in ever more challenging applications. The European PPS Technical Centre will be located within the corporation’s existing Sun Chemical’s Eurolab in Karlstein, Germany. The new laboratory is scheduled to open in November 2015, although analysis-related operations with existing resources already started in September.

DIC.PPS compounds are valued for their excellent resistance to heat and chemicals combined with outstanding low creep behaviour. They are inherently non-flammable, eliminating the need for flame retardants. This unique combination of properties enables engineers to realize significant cost savings leading to an ever increasing demand in automotive, E/E and appliance markets; resulting in PPS growth rates well above Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

Europe has a substantial market for PPS compounds and is home to a number of major automotive OEM and component manufacturers. DIC Corporation entered the European PPS market in 2003 and DIC market share has risen steadily since then. After acquiring the Primef® PPS compound business from Solvay and establishing a domestic compounding plant for DIC.PPS and Primef® in Vienna in 2012 the new Technical Centre marks the next important milestone to DIC’s regional PPS infrastructure.

With the new European Technical Centre, DIC Corporation has a global supply and technical service network for PPS compounds encompassing facilities in Japan, Malaysia, People’s Republic of China and Europe.

DIC to increase its PPS polymer production capacity to maintain its leading share of the global market for PPS compounds

Tokyo, Japan - DIC Corporation announced that it will invest approximately ¥ 4.4 billion (€ 32 million) to build a new polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) polymer production line at DIC's Kashima Plant, located in Kamisu, Ibaraki Prefecture. The new line will be installed in the existing PPS polymer production facility, and will employ processes that deliver substantially increased productivity, boosting the DIC Group’s overall annual PPS polymer production capacity to a world-class 23,000 tons. The new PPS polymer production line is scheduled for completion in December 2016.

Since the last increase of its production capacity for PPS polymer in 2013, the DIC Group has stepped up efforts to expand its PPS compounds business worldwide. In 2015, the Group will complete construction of a new dedicated PPS compound production facility in the People’s Republic of China (PRC), which will join existing facilities in Japan, Malaysia and Austria. Global demand for PPS compounds is forecast to increase dramatically in the next ten years. DIC will expand its current capacity for PPS compounds to 39,500 tons in order to support the continued growth of our customers.
