Our products

Our customers increasingly demand innovative solutions to make people’s lives better, safer, more convenient and healthier, while addressing the challenge of climate change. New standards in design, comfort and ease of use are combining with the quest to cut energy use. These trends are driving the demand for high performance plastics. With our broad, high-quality materials portfolio and in-depth technology know-how, we work in close collaboration with customers across the globe to develop new applications in response to their search for better, smarter, stronger, safer, smaller, lighter, longer-lasting or more sustainable solutions. 

PA46

High-temperature Aliphatic polyamide with a melting temperature of 295°C and high crystallinity level and fast crystallization speed, resulting in Stanyls three key strengths:

  • Excellent high-temperature mechanical properties
  • Excellent wear and friction behavior
  • Superior melt flow

PA4T PPA

ForTii has a unique PPA's technology with high amide density. The ForTii platform includes polymers that are the highest crystalline, highest melting point and highest glass transition temperature amongst all PPA resulting in:

  • Best mechanics <160°C
  • Highest peak temperature performance
  • High chemical resistance

PA410

EcoPaXX is a high-performance aliphatic, biobased polyamide which uniquely balances benefits of typical short and long chain polyamides such as low moisture uptake and high mechanical performance. EcoPaXX has wide applicability and is especially popular as PA66  performance booster since it can be processed in the same tools.

  • 30% lower moisture uptake than PA66 with higher mechanical performance
  • Excellent surface finish
  • 72% bio-based

PPS

Poly(p-phenylene sulfide) (PPS) is a polymer made up of sulfur atoms and phenylene rings. It is a semi-crystalline polymer with a melting point of about 280°C. The highly stable chemical bonds of its molecular structure brings PPS below key strengths: 

  • Dimensional stability
  • Heat aging performance up to 240 °C
  • Chemical resistance at elevated temperature

TPC

Thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) with high temperature resistance, good processability and excellent elastic behavior. Arnitel belongs to the TPE subcategory of thermoplastic copolyesters (TPC). 

  • Broad range of hardnesses varying from 85 shore A up to 72 shore D.
  • High temperature resistance within the TPE family. Depending on the type of TPC and stabilization up to 170 C continuous use.
  • Mainly used to replace rubber in automotive, electronics and other industries.
