Heramid® A PA66
Heramid® is the trade name for a range of post-industrial PA6 and PA66 products manufactured using secondary raw materials and intended for injection moulding and extrusion for automotive, electrical/ electronics and industrial applications.
Heramids® are PA6 and PA66 plastic compounds made mostly from secondary raw materials selected from the industrial waste and scrap that are produced by RadiciGroup polymerization and compounding plants. Thus, they are engineering plastics that aim at optimizing the technical performance to environmental impact ratio. The testing performed in the R&D and Quality Labs ensures that all the required technical and safety documentation can be provided for all the products.
The Heramid® product range is proof that it is possible to integrate environmental commitment in the manufacture of PA6 and PA66 thermoplastic compounds. Each Heramid® product possesses unique characteristics that make it suitable for the manufacture of plastic components for use in a variety of different industries, from electronics to automotive. Furthermore, Heramid® thermoplastic compounds are processable by injection moulding or extrusion, thus meeting the needs of the diverse production processes used for the manufacture of components for automotive, electrical and technical industrial applications.
The product versions covered by this Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) are Heramid® A NER GF030/1K, a 30% glass-fi bre reinforced, heat stabilized, black PA 66 compound and Heramid® A NER MP/ 1K, a toughened, heat stabilized PA 66 compound. Both versions are injection moulding grade products.
