Akulon®

Akulon for E&E: Stronger with higher productivity

Akulon® polyamide compounds (PA6 and PA66) are ideal for the E&E industry, not least because we offer a range of halogen-free grades. Akulon’s robust performance, and particularly the compliance of various grades to IEC and UL standards - not to mention great color stability and productivity benefits - make it ideal for applications ranging from MCB housings to connectors.

Our Akulon portfolio provides extremely robust performance in terms of UL94V and glow wire electrical performance – with an excellent balance of design flexibility, easy processing and outstanding properties over a wide temperature range.

Akulon Ultraflow

Our Akulon® Ultraflow™ grade offers even greater benefits, enabling manufacturers to produce at lower temperatures, which in turn leads to less mold deposits, less maintenance and of course lower costs. Furthermore in connectors, where miniaturization is a defining trend in E&E, Akulon Ultraflow enables thinner walled parts thanks to its superior flow properties.

This grade also offers up to 80% improved flow and up to 25% reduction in injection molding cycle times versus regular Polyamide 6 grades. In E&E in particular it requires less back pressure which in turn enables you to use either smaller equipment; or produce larger volumes with existing equipment.

Reinforced Grades

We offer Akulon in reinforced and non-reinforced grades that can be used in applications ranging from connectors and sockets to lighting drivers – all available in halogen-free grades.
