NILIT at K2016
At K 2016, NILIT Plastics will showcase its complete range of polyamides (PA) compounds for different markets like automotive, electrical & electronics and more.

NILIT Plastics operates on a global scale, with 4 research and development centers and 5 production operation units in Israel, Europe (Italy and 2 in Germany) and in China, where it has recently implemented an important expansion in production capacity.

With the addition of Sales and Technical offices in Europe, China, North America and South America, NILIT Plastics is covering the needs of global and local clients.

Polyamides for High Performance Compounds

NILIT Plastics is back-integrated into polymerization of PA6.6, this provides its customers with enhanced security of supply. The upstream capability also provides NILIT Plastics with additional ability to develop special solutions starting from the polymer base.

The product portfolio of NILIT Plastics is one of the broadest in the market for polyamide compounds. This breadth is matched by the company’s depth of expertise focused on compounds based on polyamides and has in-depth knowledge of target markets and applications. NILIT Plastics is therefore regarded by the market and by its own customers as a “solution provider,” with its ability to develop and produce compounds exactly fit for application purpose, in small, medium and large quantities. The company is dedicated to high quality specialties and it has developed in the last 40 years more than 3000 different formulations, 1000 of which are in use today.

Many of these compounds have been certified by independent authorities: more than 85 compounds are UL and VDE listed for flammability and electrical performances.

Several products have been developed to be compliant with the highest standards specified in the EN45545 norm for railway vehicles operating across Europe as well as to comply with the Automotive OEMs specifications.

NILIT Plastics has also developed compounds suitable for contact with foods and potable water, and complying with the ISO-EN60335/4 standard for unattended appliances.

The NILIT Plastics product families cover the entire spectrum of application fields for polyamides. Specifically, they are:
  • FRIANYL® flame retardant grades for the electrical and electronics, meeting most stringent industry requirements, and in almost all colors;
  • NILAMID® technical grades for industrial and automotive applications;
  • NILAMID® specialty portfolio for extended performance requirements in terms of thermal, electrical, mechanical and tribological properties in particular;
  • ECOMID® grades containing high-quality PA fibers and textile recyclate for a combination of quality, high lot-to-lot consistency and competitiveness;
  • POLYNIL® base resin from NILIT’s own reactors, suitable for compounding, injection molding and extrusion with an individual chain length adjusted tailor-made compounds

Most recent additions to the NILIT Plastics range, developed to cater for new market trends, include “XS” and “XT” types.

NILAMID® XS grades are compounds based on semi-aromatic polyamides, and are intended specifically for applications replacing metals.

FRIANLY® XT and NILAMID® XT compounds based on PPA provide superior performance, particularly in terms of high heat resistance and mechanical strength.

NILIT Plastics is exhibiting on Stand D05 in Hall 7a during the K 2016 show, the international trade fair for plastics taking place in Düsseldorf, Germany, from October 19 to 26.
