EcoPaXX® is well suited to a wide range of automotive applications. Its combination of strength and stiffness, along with chemical and high heat resistance makes it especially ideal for demanding Under-the-Hood components and safety applications.
EcoPaXX® is a long-chain polyamide that offers you an outstanding blend of properties, including stiffness (highest among all long-chain polyamides) and toughness, especially against bending. It also performs reliably in extreme heat and is very resistant to chemicals and moisture. In fact, EcoPaXX is the highest melting aliphatic, long-chain polyamide, thus combining the unique properties of 4-based polyamides (high-crystallinity, melting point, stiffness) with those from the long-chain character (low-moisture uptake, chemical resistance).
This versatility makes it ideal for a wide range of applications in industries ranging from automotive to E&E to packaging to consumer goods. Each industry demands some very specific qualities from its materials, and in every case EcoPaXX delivers. And of course, it has a neutral carbon footprint.
Electrical and electronics
As the E&E industry continues to reduce its environmental footprint and adopt a lifecycle-based approach to production, EcoPaXX® provides a perfect opportunity to ensure manufacturers start as they mean to go on.
Consumer goods, sport and leisure
From skiing gear to zips and fasteners, manufacturers are looking to produce lighter, smarter - and greener - designs that meet the needs of modern consumers. EcoPaXX® fits the bill nicely.
EcoPaXX® is very well suited for making thin, strong transparent films. They can be advantageously employed for all kinds of packaging.
Building & Construction
Building and construction are often resource-heavy activities. Today, engineering plastics can replace conventional materials in a wide variety of applications – improving performance while reducing environmental impact.
