Explore EcoPaXX® in consumer goods & electronics

EcoPaXX is ideally suited for industries with a strong drive for sustainability. In electronics, EcoPaXX is used due to its high dielectric strength after moisture uptake and V0 halogen-free flame retardancy. In window profiles, EcoPaXX shows good insulating properties. In fashion and apparel, EcoPaXX brings high durability, aesthetics and easy processability for design freedom.

A natural performer

EcoPaXX is DSM’s most established biobased engineering plastic. It combines DSM’s propriety C4 technology with the power of nature’s C10 building block derived from castor plants, which do not compete with the food chain. The combination of the short C4 block and the long C10 block gives EcoPaXX high mechanical properties of typical short chain polyamides, but combines these with lower moisture update and higher chemical resistance more typical of long chain polyamides. EcoPaXX can easily be processed in PA66 tools while resulting in better surface quality. This makes it an ideal candidate for when performance, aesthetics and sustainability come together.
