Ticona Engineering Polymers boasts that its new Hostaform grade can outperform standard reinforced thermoplastics.
The Florence, Ky., firm has introduced a long-glass-fiber acetal copolymer for structural applications such as automotive parts, appliance components and gears.
It exhibits high impact resistance, inherent lubricity, and fuel and chemical resistance. It also has better temperature resistance than standard polyolefin-based long-fiber products and lower moisture absorption than standard nylons, according to Ticona. Its impact, creep and stiffness performance make it suited for structural end uses.
