Akromid® S3 GF 30 4

Technical DataSheet | Supplied by Akro-Plastic

Renewable resource-based polyamide 6.10. Has a renewable-resource content of up to 70 % and therefore fulfils the current definition of a bioplastic. It is synthesized from castor oil which is obtained from the seeds of Ricinus communis, the castor oil plant. From a technical standpoint, AKROMID® S closes the gap between PA 6/PA 6.6 and PA 12. It is characterized by significantly lower moisture absorption compared to PA 6 and PA 6.6. Exhibits excellent cold impact resistance. Other outstanding characteristics include very good chemical resistance due to the structure of the polymer and high hydrolysis resistance, although it can be processed like all common polyamides. The materials from the PA 6.10 product family are further characterized by exceptional dimensional stability, good surface quality, good abrasion resistance wear behaviour, and an improved carbon footprint. Used in automotive sector (Connectors, housings, non-return valves, power steering-fluid reservoirs, corrugated tubing and fluid pipes), machin construction & tool building (Gears, door handles, fittings, office equipments, housings, functional parts, connectors, plugs, power tools), sports & leisure (Components in high-end garden tools, bicycle accessories, sail-boat accessories, winter sports accessories).
