Evonik Industries AG has developed a new polyphthalamide compound with improved mechanical properties.
Vestamid HTplus M1035 P1 is a glass-reinforced material with high burst pressure strength capable of standing up to the alternating stresses in auto casing components. High impact strength and corrosion resistance are also key for this end-use.
Evonik of Marl, Germany, says the new PPA exhibits good flow behaviour, allowing smoother and defects-free injection-molded parts. Products in the Vestamid HTplus lineup are semi-crystalline resins designed to replace metal.
The product is offered through Evonik's Resource Efficiency segment that focuses on high performance materials that provide environmental and energy-efficiency benefits.
