EcoPaXX® is our bio-based, high-performance polyamide (PA410) that offers outstanding performance across the board, while being made mainly from tropical castor beans which don’t compete with the food chain.
EcoPaXX® belongs to the family of long-chain polyamides, which offer exceptional performance in the most demanding of environments. That includes excellent chemical resistance, low moisture absorption, combined with a very high melting point (highest of all bio-plastics) and high crystallization rate (typical for engineering plastics like PA66 and PA46).
And… EcoPaXX® is certified 100% carbon neutral from cradle to gate. That means the amount of carbon dioxide emitted during the production of EcoPaXX is offset by the amount absorbed in plant growth, and in particular by thericcinus communis – the tropical castor bean plant that makes up some 70% of EcoPaXX.
<li>The food contact grades ForTii® WX11-FC and EcoPaXX® Q-DWX10 are suitable for repeated bakecycles giving a homogeneous bake, are non-stick and stainless and are dishwasher proof</li>
<li>ForTii® WX11-FC allows for in flow critical tools with good weldline strength, has high stiffness retention at elevated temperatures and has low warpage.</li>
<li>EcoPaXX® Q-DWX10 has high stiffness, good ductility, wide processing window and excellent surface finish.</li>
<li>EcoPaXX® PA410 allows for reliable solutions due to its superior toughness, its improved bonding strength, its high hydrolytic stability (NSF61 is hot water certified) and its excellent dimensional stability</li>
<li>EcoPaXX® PA410 leads to sustainable solutions since it is partly bio-based</li>
<li>Akulon® (UltraFlow) PA6 allows for reliable solutions due to its good mechanical properties (stiffness and toughness), its better surface appearance in comparison with PA66</li>
<li>Akulon® UltraFlow PA6 allows for even more cost effective solutions, since it enables faster moulding in comparison with standard PA6 and enables thinner wall designs</li>
<li>EcoPaXX® Q-DWX10 is suitable for hot water contact, shows excellent hydrolysis resistance and does not crack in the pressure test at -1°C. EcoPaXX® Q-DWX10 is a cost effective, reliable solution and is partially biobased.</li>
<li>ForTii® Ace WX53-FC is suitable for hot water contact, shows excellent hydrolysis resistance of the weldline strength and has great surface appearance. ForTii® Ace WX53-FC is suitable for industrial pumps and valves in for water and food contact applications operating at temperatures up to 130°C.</li>
