Blow molding grades of Akulon PA6 are available as well:
Offerering similar advantages to injection molding
High melt strength allows stable parison formation and better control of wall
Excellent toughness at low temperatures
High stiffness at elevated temperatures allowing for designing with smaller
Akulon Ultraflow provides productivity gains through improved processing
offers improved flow, fast cycling behavior, and excellent surface
appearance. Akulon Ultraflow is an easy to process PA6 that offers up to 80%
higher flow and up to a 40% reduction in injection molding cycle times with no
significant effect on mechanical properties compared to standard PA6 grades.
The improvement of flow is the result of DSM Engineering Plastics’ proprietary
technology which translates into other benefits like: improved surface
appearance, lower molded-in-stress, warpage reduction, less molding tonnage,
and increased design freedom.
Processing advantages of Akulon Ultraflow yield significant productivity gains
compared to standard polyamides:
Up to 40% shorter injection molding cycles
Up to 80% more flowability
Lower temperature settings
Lower injection pressures
Lower clamp tonnage machines
