Alternatives to PA 66 – We call it Smart Engineering Plastics Solutions

We at LANXESS are convinced that switching from PA 66 to PA 6 or PBT is possible in almost all applications. We have the experience and the skills to accompany you through this changeover process.

In recent years, there have been a number of bottlenecks in the PA 66 supply chain and a thereof resulting increase in the cost of PA 66 compounds. The comparison of properties is often in favor of more readily available materials such as PA 6 or PBT.

Also due to the technical properties, many processors have recently switched from PA 66 to other materials - often in ongoing applications with little or no tool modifications.

Do you have any questions about the change process? We will be happy to advise you.
