and applications

A large number of grades for different applications are available as high-modulus materials based on Durethan® and Pocan®.

The following list sets out the products together with their strong points: high stiffness and strength, as well as additional advantages like high hydrolysis resistance, flowability or surface finish.

With 60% glass fiber reinforcement, highly-reinforced Durethan® DPBKV60H2.0EF achieves a very high modulus at high temperatures too. Being an easy-flow grade, it can still be processed as easily as a PA 6 GF30.
A high modulus, low tendency to creep, low warpage and good flow properties make this grade ideal for applications such as structural parts.

In the case of PA 66, both Durethan® AKV50H2.0 and the easy-flow variant of Durethan® AKV50H2.0EF are available.
Durethan® AKV50HRH2.0 with a considerably improved coolant resistance has been developed for intensive long-term contact with coolants.
