EcoPaXX® Q-HG6

Mit 30% Glasfasern verstärkt, wärmestabilisiert

Allgemeine Information

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.
