Material Notes:
A characteristic property of AKROMID® S (PA 6.10) is that it has a renewable-resource content of up to 70 % and therefore fulfils the current definition of a bioplastic. The plant-based raw material used is sebacic acid, 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. At 23 °C and 50 % relative humidity, typical values for these product types are 3 % and 2.8 %, respectively. With a value of approximately 1.4 %, PA 6.10 absorbs just half as much moisture and can therefore be used as an engineering material in applications requiring a high dimensional consistency. Moreover, it 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 resistance, good abrasion resistance and wear behaviour, and an improved carbon footprint. This is due to the fact that the plant-based raw materials have already removed CO2 from the environment during their growth phase. The product portfolio currently comprises one non reinforced variant and several reinforced variants with a glass-fibre content ranging from 15 % to 50 %. AKROMID® S is a bioplastic according to today’s standards. Unlike certain materials used in the packaging industry, however, the material is not biodegradable. The distinguishing feature of AKROMID® S is its reduced ecological footprint: The use of harmful CO2 per ton of polyamide produced from renewable resources is significantly lower compared to one ton produced from fossil-based resources, without affecting the product’s performance characteristics.Applications:Automotive SectorConnectors and housingsNon-return valvesPower steering-fluid reservoirsCorrugated tubing and fluid pipesMachine Construction and Tool-BuildingGearsDoor handles and fittingsOffice equipment, housings, functional parts, amongst othersConnectors and plugsPower toolsSports and LeisureComponents in high-end garden toolsBicycle accessoriesSail-boat accessoriesWinter sports accessoriesInformation from Akro-Plastic
