Pana-Tetra Compound Resin

Pana-Tetra is the minute zinc oxide single crystal filler which can compound for improvement of the dimensions precision of the resin molding (the anisotropic relief of the molding shrinkage rate and the linear thermal expansion) and the surface smoothness and abrasion-resistant.

Grade

[ Metal-Substitute, Precision Molding Grade ]
  • Superior precise molding ability is performed by the low shrinkage rate and high fluidity.
  • By anisotropy relief of molding, the plane degree and the truth disc degree are improved and the warp is prevented.
[ Sliding and Abrasion-resistant Resin Grade ]
  • Low friction coefficient was achieved by the superior surface smoothness.
  • Abrasion-resistant ability is much improved by compound of "Pana-Tetra".
[ Electrification prevention, Conductive Resin Grade ]
  • High level of stable electrification prevention and conductivity.
  • Superior static electricity diffusion performance.
[ Electromagnetic Radiation Shield Resin Grade ]
  • Excellent shield by adoption of special conductive filler.
  • Steady "mold processability and molded product's surface condition".

Features

Size precision Improvement by anisotropic relief of resin mold product

By compounding Pana-tetra, the orientation of the glass fiber at the time of the injection molding (PBT resin with glass fiber) is reduced. So that anisotropy and warp of the molding resin are improved. In addition, Pana-Tatra improves surface smoothness by holding an exposure of glass fiber from the surface of resin.

Compared with mold shrinkage and warp of plate

Surface smoothness of resin mold product

Pana-Tetra improves surface smoothness by holding an exposure of glass fiber from the surface of resin (PC resin, PPS resin, & LCP resin) with glass fiber.

Weld Improvement Effect

Pana-tetra is micro-sized zinc oxide single-crystal filler in the shape of a tetrapod, and when it is part of composite PP resin, it delivers greater weld-line improvement effects when compared to talc-composite resin.

When a weld-line is generated by a colliding mass of flowing resin during molding, pana-tetra composite resin delivers greater weld-line improvement effects when compared to talc-composite resin.

Visual evaluation: Talc-composite resin is characterized by a dark shaded area near the weld-line; however, Pana-tetra composite resin showed almost no change of color.

Comparison of weld-line height and width:

  • Pana-tetra composite : Height 3 μm, Width 10 μm
  • Talc composite : Height 10 μm, Width 32 μm
