Innovative technology helps reduce emission footprints

Mitsubishi Engineering-Plastics Corporation (MEP), meets the rapidly-changing stringent regulatory and functional requirements of the automotive, electronics and general industries markets for low formaldehyde emissions with a new polyacetal (POM) product family. MEP has announced the innovative low-odor and low-residue Iupital 05 Polyacetal Series.

Traditional industrial polyacetal offerings can give off undesired gaseous formaldehyde products during processing, which hampers its adoption in low emission driven industries, including automotive applications, electronics and general industry.

This formulation allows the popular Iupital product line to significantly reduce the production of formaldehyde while maintaining chemical, thermal, electrical, and mechanical properties with wear resistance.

By optimising manufacturing technology through proprietary R&D efforts, the MEP engineering team has succeeded in reducing the amount of formaldehyde typically generated by about 50%. This innovation optimises injection molding production due to less mold deposit, reduces down time for cleaning molds as well as extending the life of the mold, resulting in lower operating costs.

Additionally, the Iupital 05 Series significantly emits less formaldehyde odors during molding, thus improving the working conditions

MEP will introduce this new generation of innovative polyacetals with a range of different viscosities, including the standard flow version F20-05 and the high flow grades F30-05 and F40-05.

According to Kazuhiro Ando, Executive Officer of MEP Japan, the key driver in MEP’s new developments are matching industry needs raised by customers, through the provision of value added products and services, whilst contributing to our natural environment. With this new manufacturing innovation, we are confident MEP can not only successfully extend the already widely adopted Iupital portfolio by providing a sought after solution for emission reduction to industry, but also contribute positively to society by offering products with a further improved environmental footprint”.
