SCANREX | PPA

SCANREX is Polykemi’s product family of glass fiber reinforced plastic compounds based on partially aromatic polyamides (PPA).

SCANREX

SCANREX is Polykemi’s latest addition to our product families. SCANREX is based on partially aromatic polyamides. The materials have extreme mechanical properties, very high operating temperatures and high dimensional stability. Polykemi offers glass fiber reinforced grades of SCANREX for injection molding. The materials can be used as a replacement for metal.

Raw material

SCANREX is based on partially crystalline partially aromatic polyamides, PPA. The presence of aromatic structures in the polymer chain results in greatly enhanced properties of PPA  compared to the linear polyamides, such as PA6 and PA66. For example, PPA has greatly increased heat resistance, chemical resistance, and mechanical properties.
