Spatulas and Kitchenware

Consumer goods | Household utensils

Stanyl® PA46 and Akulon® PA66 allow reliable solutions, since Stanyl® PA46 offers much higher melting temperature and HDT than PA66 and Akulon® PA66 has significantly higher melting temperature resistance than PP and PA6; Stanyl® PA46 allows for cost effective solutions since it offers high flowability enabling very thin wall designs and faster injection moulding cycle times than PA66

Soft touch in spatulas and kitchenware

Consumer goods | Household utensils

Arnitel® TPC allows for reliable solutions because of its excellent adhesion with PBT in 2K injection moulding, its superb scratch resistance (which make kitchen tools look better even after years of intensive usage), its chemical resistance (dish washer proof) and its approvals for direct food contact

Bakeware

Consumer goods | Household utensils

The food contact grades ForTii® WX11-FC and EcoPaXX® Q-DWX10 are suitable for repeated bakecycles giving a homogeneous bake, are non-stick and stainless and are dishwasher proof;ForTii® WX11-FC allows for in flow critical tools with good weldline strength, has high stiffness retention at elevated temperatures and has low warpage.;EcoPaXX® Q-DWX10 has high stiffness, good ductility, wide processing window and excellent surface finish.

Wine Taps

Stanyl® TE200F6-FC

30% Glass Reinforced

Stanyl® is our high-performance polyamide 46 used for applications in automotive, E&E, gears and outdoor power equipments.

Stanyl® is a high performance polyamide that provides unmatched performance and value for demanding applications in which superior heat resistance, design stiffness, wear & friction and process flow qualities are required.

Because Stanyl retains its mechanical properties at high temperatures up to 220°C, this makes it ideal for extremely high-performance applications, where it outperforms PPA, PA6T, PA9T, and often PPS and LCP.
