It is time for the next step in the development of the Polykemi product range. We launch a new family of high performing plastic compounds called SCANREX. The premiere members are two PPA-compounds with 30 % and 50 % glass fibers called SCANREX PPA F125 F30 och SCANREX PPA F125 F50. The materials constitutes base grades in a class of materials, which has become a popular first stop for designers and engineers, faced with the task of replacing metal with plastics.
The new materials typically find use in mechanical components and automotive parts.
In mechanical applications the advantages of the materials are high wear resistance, dimensional stability, also in moist environments and in contact with oil, together with outstanding mechanical strength. Examples of specific parts where these properties are taken advantage of include ball joints bearings, gear wheels and hinges.
Within the automotive industry the material contributes to weight reduction by replacing metal in supporting constructions. In the engine compartment PPA can be found in component housings, air mass measuring valves, throttles and in fuel line connectors.
We have already noticed an interest for customer adapted materials also in this niche of the market. This also fit into the strategic direction of Polykemi to present additional high performing plastic compounds from the SCANREX-family in the time to come.
We look forward to meeting prospects and customers also in this new niche of the market.
