The two charts above indicate that PPAs with a high glass transition temperature could replace PA66 GF50% in a sustainable, cost-effective way, so long as the PPA is not based on PA66.
ForTii Ace MX53T (PA4T GF50) provides a sustainable and cost-effective alternative to PA66 GF50 within the current market and pricing regime, where PA66 is in short supply. This holds for designs that are optimized for maximum weight reduction, resulting in thinner walls, and therefore potentially faster cycle times. ForTii Ace MX53T is likely not a direct drop-in solution for existing tooling, however it is the most robust candidate material for new projects.
The material enables the design and production of future-proof parts due the material’s lower and slower moisture absorption, high dimensional stability, low creep at elevated temperatures, and excellence resistance to chemicals, including road salt, coolants, acids, and engine and transmission oils. All sales of ForTii Ace MX53T are backed by full support from our team of experts, including an extensive data package, material cards, part prototyping, design and molding support.
