Evonik at Fakuma: Features PMMA & PA Products for Auto, Lighting & Cable and Sports Sector

Published on 2014-10-15. Author : SpecialChem

As the producers of PLEXIGLAS® and various high-performance polymers such as the polyamide 12 VESTAMID®, now celebrating its 50th birthday, Evonik is focusing at this year's FAKUMA in Friedrichshafen on specialty products and solutions for the automotive sector, lighting and cable applications, and sports equipment.

Evonik specialists are presenting products and solutions from the Acrylic Polymers and High Performance Polymers Business Lines. To mention just a few examples:
  • PLEXIGLAS® Resist AG 100, one of the world's first PMMA compounds for automotive glazing, offers design freedom and functional integration — and can be processed using any of the usual methods for thermoplastics.
  • Specialty PLEXIGLAS® and PLEXIMID® molding compounds for high-purity optical parts in headlamps: High transmission and optical purity combined with low birefringence to prevent color fringes at the lens systems are the key requirements on these specialty products.
  • The high-temperature resistant polyamide VESTAMID®: This is distinguished by particularly high resistance to continuously high working temperatures and doubles the lifetime of automotive cables.
  • VESTAMID® for cables and cable conduits: This new polyamide 12 grade meets the requirements of Hazard Class 3 (HL3) of the new EN 45545-2:2013 standard for rail vehicles, which contains the highest standards for fire protection.
  • VESTAMID® and DAIAMID® for sports shoe soles — custom designed for high performance.
