Provide cost-effective nontoxic alternatives to other high- or low-density materials.
Ikonik® materials are composites providing functional properties such as densification, magnetization, or light-weighting by incorporating industrially-refined particles such as glass bubbles, glass beads, ferrite, steel, stainless steel, copper, and Tungsten. These particles are coated with Tundra’s proprietary technology (TundraKoat™) and are compounded into thermoplastics allowing for functional properties. These products can be processed using standard thermoplastic molding equipment. Ikonik® materials can be used in the automotive, ballistics, sporting goods, general balancing & ballasting, and magnetics markets. The Ikonik® platform also incorporates mineral filler particles such as Calcium Carbonate, Talc, Mica, Titanium Dioxide, and others for polymer extension, improvement of certain properties, or a mixture of both.
- Reduction of Weight (Densities as low as 0.7 g/cm3)
- Low Dielectric Constant
- Dimensional Stability
- Cycle Time Reduction
- Reduced Resin Demand
- Coated magnetic particles can be loaded into almost any polymer imaginable. Increased particle loading leads to greater end article magnetism.
- Flexible Magnets
- Tundra’s coating provides increased product flexibility which in turn provides better magnetic wet-out and increased surface conformity. This results in a better product.
