WINONA, MINNESOTA, USA – (12/16/13) – Global custom engineered thermoplastics compounder, RTP Company, has recently introduced a new line of high performance, injection modable wear and friction resistant compounds, called Ultra Wear.

These new Ultra Wear compounds are capable of performing at a pressure/velocity ratio (PV) of up to 100,000 and an elevated temperature of up to 400°F (205°C). RTP Company is able to achieve this industry-leading performance by leveraging synergistic wear additives combined with high temperature and chemically resistant polymers.

One of the key benefits of using Ultra Wear compounds versus thermoset composites is the elimination of costly secondary operations, such as annealing and machining. Other key benefits include better mechanical properties, greater design freedom and reduction of production time and costs.

Applications that may demand RTP Company’s Ultra Wear compounds include bearings, bushings, seals, rings, thrust washers and gears for nebulizers, micro pumps, compressors and other drug delivery devices.
