Month: September 2018

Core temperature and especially overheating of a runner’s core can be a major health risk at running events. In 2014, a healthy young adult died because of cardiac arrest caused by overheating of the core body.

MyTemp BV is start-up company based in Nijmegen that aims to develop an innovative, reliable, plug and play and affordable system to measure core temperature. The Mytemp capsule was successfully tested at the “Dam to Dam” run, a Dutch 16.1 km (10 miles) running event.

The Wittenburg Group’s Research and Development team closely cooperated with MyTemp to develop material needed for the body monitoring capsule. In 2018, Wittenburg supplied MyTemp with the special granulate to form the capsule successfully used in today’s Dam tot Dam run.

The capsule and Mytemp was aired by RTL Nieuws and can be viewed here (Dutch news)

A presentation will be given by WITCOM Engineering Plastics on “Optimising compound performance – Adding other key properties to the electrical conductivity”. Formulating electrically conductive compounds requires experience and know-how. The job even looks more difficult when the base polymer is an engineering plastic, and when the conductivity should come together with additional technical requirements. As an example, some applications require formulations to be electrically conductive, high impact resistant, flame retardant and colourable. Our broad experience with the realisation of complex conductive compounds matching multiple requirements will be illustrated through applications and results. As a specialty engineering plastics compounder, we are keen to develop the adequate solution to your needs. We can help you whenever you need more than electrical conductivity.
