With their excellent impact strength, high heat resistance, and exceptional flame retardancy, Akulon® grades cater to a multitude of applications ranging from automotive to consumer goods.
  • Arnite® is a portfolio of polyester (PET and PBT) materials that deliver excellent electrical insulation properties along with superior dimensional stability, and heat and chemical resistance. With grades suitable for various processing techniques, Arnite® is widely used in applications that require strength, rigidity, and dimensional stability such as automotive, electrical and electronic components.
  • Arnitel® is a high-performance thermoplastic copolyester (TPC) that offers a unique balance between flexibility and strength, making it ideal for applications requiring elasticity and chemical resistance. Arnitel® is also highly regarded for its ability to deliver performance in high-temperature environments.
  • Durethan® A and B: Based on polyamide 6 and 6.6, these materials offer high stiffness and outstanding strength, despite very low weight. They also offer good electrical insulation and resistance to heat, chemicals, and abrasion. Glass-fiber-reinforced and mineral-reinforced grades are available, alongside flame-retardant, extra-tough, and easy-flow polyamides.
  • EcoPaxx® is a bio-based, high-performance polyamide that aligns exceptional performance with environmental responsibility. With excellent chemical resistance, high mechanical strength, and low moisture absorption, EcoPaxx® provides an ideal solution for sustainable product development.
  • ForTii®: A high-performance semi-aromatic polyamide (PPA), ForTii is constructed on novel ‘C4’ diamine technology that gives it industry-leading mechanical properties due to its optimized crystallization morphology. ForTii exhibits superior stiffness and mechanical strength at extreme temperatures, as well as good chemical resistance, making it an ideal choice for electronics, automotive electrical components, and structural automotive parts.
  • ForTii® Ace: This variant of ForTii is a premium high-melting PPA, known for its remarkable mechanical strength and stiffness properties up to 160°C and high chemical resistance. Durable and versatile, it is often used in electronics, electrical automotive parts, and structural automotive components, as well as in food and drinking water contact applications.
