Power tools

Check out the range of applications in power tools where our engineering plastics are used.

Leading the way in power tools

Today’s consumers are more demanding of the products they buy – for indoor and outdoor use. They want goods that perform well, look good, last longer, and use as little energy as possible – both in their product and their day-to-day use.

Our portfolio of engineering plastics are developed with the knowledge that technology and innovation go hand-in-hand. They’re used across various power tool applications.

Featured customer applications

Power Tool Housings

Consumer goods | Power tools

Akulon® PA6 is a reliable solution for power tool housings due to its lighter weight compared to metals, possible part and function integration, easier assembly and longer tool lives. It has better welding strength and surface appearance than PA66. Akulon UltraFlow PA6 has outstanding mechanical properties over a wide temperature range and in diverse conditions.

A scientific approach to building solutions

Our dedicated teams work closely with our customers to look at the entire process of developing new parts and components – whether it is a case of metal replacement, or developing solutions that are stronger, safer and more effective. Our methodical approach extends to every step of the process, from design and material performance to production and compliance.
