  • Sustainable office chair is built with recycled ghost fishing nets

    The Ahrend Remode is the most sustainable office chair yet—it is lightweight, modular, and made of recycled and recyclable materials. The chair’s structural seat components, backrest mechanism and the star base are manufactured from Akulon® RePurposed, a high-performance polyamide, made from recycled fishing nets. The mechanical recyclate closes Remode’s value chain designed for recycling and reduces CO2 emissions.

  • Predict moisture vapor transmission rate of several Arnitel® grades.

    Arnitel® material grades are frequently used in film applications that are permeable to water vapor or "breathable." For proper application designs, engineers want to be able to predict moisture vapor transmission rates (MVTR) for material grades and know how it affects material performance in specific applications. Our Moisture Vapor Transmission Rate Tool allows you to easily estimate the MVTR of a material you are considering.

  • Decrease EV battery damage risks when using Pocan®AF4130, a flame retardant PBT+ASA grade

    Engineering thermoplastics like PBT and PBT blends have potential for applications in the EV battery sector. Although PBT has been widely utilized in electrical and electronic automotive components, it may be challenging to find a material specifically for battery components. Certain requirements must be met, and so Envalior and Hella tailormade a material for BMU and CMU housings that is resistance to heat and chemicals.
