High performance materials designed for regulated food contact environments. Enhancing productivity, increasing component lifetime and cost down.
Extreme-Temperature Performance – allowing continuous operation in temperatures of 260°C and up to 300°C for short-term usage
Purity – exceptional high purity
Chemical Resistance – resistant to aggressive cleaning agents and processes, insoluble in all common solvents
Mechanical Strength – excellent strength, dimensional stability and stiffness as well as long-term creep and fatigue properties
Wear Properties – high abrasion and cut through resistance combined with a low friction coefficient
Light Weight – enabling reduced mass and lower energy consumption, improved efficiency and cost reduction
Regulatory Approvals – appropriate food and water certification
Environmental Friendliness – fully recyclable, halogen-free and RoHS and REACH compliant. Chemically inert to water and pressurised steam
Hydrolysis Resistance – low moisture absorption, resistant to steam, with low permeability
Easy Processing – 1-shot injection moulding process allows for optimised part design and eliminates the need for secondary processing steps and saves labour, space, machine invest
Electrical Properties – maintained over a wide frequency and temperature range, improved dielectric strength vs. PI/PTFE
