Trimmer lines

Looking further ahead, another interesting application for our plastics in wear and friction applications is trimmer lines.

Not only do we have a solid track record in MONOfilament technology but we offer very high-quality materials. Our Akulon polyamide 6 and 66 both offer a superb balance of properties. Our co-polyamide Novamid® 6/66 offers outstanding bending softness and strength, while in polyamide 6/6T it offers excellent stiffness and moisture resistance.

And then finally we have our newest green plastic EcoPaxx™ - which is 70% bio-based and retains its high-performance properties under moist conditions as well as extreme heat.
