Application Data Sheet

Design challenge
Cost Reduction & Function Integration
Designing for ductility
Designing for flexibility


  • Akulon® PA6 allows for 40-60% weight reduction versus metal
  • Akulon® PA6 allows for reliable (safer since no metal bolts needed) and cost effective solutions versus metal (due to the possibility of function integration) and versus PA66 (PA6 more economical choice)
  • Akulon® Ultraflow grades allow even for more cost effectiveness due to 25% cycle time advantage and due to high flowability enabling thinner walled designs


Proven track record at various OEMs for more than 20 years with Akulon® PA6. High Speed Data enable optimal part designs.
