ALBIS Launches ALCOM® MS “Anti Squeak” to Reduce Unwanted NoisesALBIS PLASTIC has developed ALCOM® MS “Anti Squeak” especially for customers in the automotive and consumer electronics industries to reduce noise.

  • It’s ABS-, PC-, or PC+-based component materials provide improved “stick-slip” behavior
  • Reduces the risk of unwanted noise when coming into contact with other casing materials
  • Prevents the creaking and cracking noises that consumers associate with lower product quality in day-to-day use

Make Undesirable Background Noise a Thing of the Past

This gives the ALCOM® MS “Anti Squeak” potential areas of application in areas ranging from plastic components and housings in truck interiors to consumer electronics casings— anywhere that involves components being inserted, clipped, or screwed together, where even the smallest relative motion between connected plastic parts could create noise.

“Consumers base their impressions of product quality on not only haptic and visual assessments, but on acoustic ones as well,” says Eric Fautz, Product Specialist - Business Line Specialties. “Using the ALCOM® MS ‘Anti Squeak’ eliminates bothersome noise, which has a lasting positive effect on end customers’ usage experience.”

In a test pursuant to VDA 230-206 (the Ziegler test), the newly developed materials yielded impressive results even under adverse testing conditions, with no significant effects on the new compound’s mechanical and rheological properties. All materials were evaluated in terms of lacquerability and low emissions for vehicle interiors.
