DSM launched a new generation of fortii ace high-performance polyamide products

based on science and technology, Royal DSM group of the Netherlands, which is active in the fields of health, nutrition and materials worldwide, has made major initiatives. Its new polyamide product fortii ace will appear at the 2016 International Plastics and rubber Expo in Dusseldorf, Germany (2016 K exhibition) to replace metal die castings and expensive high-performance thermoplastic engineering plastics, Such as polyether ether ketone (PEEK). Fortii ace, a kind of poly (phthalamide) (PPA) based on 4T chemistry, has a series of excellent mechanical, thermal and chemical properties

it is estimated that by 2025, the weight of each vehicle produced by OEMs will be reduced by about 200 kg, in order to meet the increasingly stringent carbon dioxide emission standards of major global automobile markets *. Without affecting the safety and comfort performance, reducing the size of the engine and designing flexibly in a limited space are great challenges in the current vehicle design. DSM is convinced that otii ace will play an important role in helping vehicle manufacturers and their parts and system suppliers meet carbon dioxide emission standards because of the close connection between China's extruder products and strategic new industries

"the advent of fortii ace has made DSM another important step in the process of replacing metal die castings with plastics. Vehicle manufacturers can use plastics to replace metal materials in many applications and solve the challenges they face," said konraad dullart, global business manager of fortii, DSM, "The target application fields of fortii ace materials include powertrain, transmission system, chassis and thermal management applications. At the same time, benefiting from the excellent performance of fortii ace, many industrial applications using die-casting design can also use fortii ace as a metal substitute material."

applicable to applications requiring long-term strength under high temperature conditions

dullart also said: "Fortii ace is designed to be used in fields that require high mechanical properties and chemical stability, that is, it can maintain stable mechanical properties even when used continuously at a high temperature of 150 ℃, so as to replace metal die castings. 8. Driving precision screw pairs for experimental applications may also face challenges in many aspects, such as limited design space, noise, vibration and acoustic vibration roughness (NVH)."

the glass transition temperature of fortii ACE (the temperature point at which the amorphous region of the material begins to lose rigidity and hardness) is 160 ℃, which is significantly higher than that of other polyphthalamide materials, including existing fortii products of all grades, and is at least 80 ℃ higher than that of PA66. Fortii ace is even more resistant to various automotive oils, chemicals, etc. than peek

at present, the mechanical properties of thermoplastics that replace automotive metal die castings in the market will be greatly reduced when most of them are used at temperatures above 125 ℃. "Fortii ace won't, so this is a huge progress," dullart said. With higher glass transition temperature and crystallinity, fortii ace has better mechanical properties and heat aging resistance than those competitive products based on polyamide 6T, 9t and 10t. "Fortii ace is the only polyphthalamide product with an aromatic compound weight ratio of more than 50%, dullart added

with its excellent chemical resistance and mechanical properties, some products of fortii ace can even be used as a cost-effective substitute for peek in specific applications. The fortii ace family includes different grades of products made up of different kinds of fillers and reinforcements, including up to 50% glass and carbon fiber. The latest progress of high temperature resistant polyamide caused by sheet metal corrosion

DSM engineering plastics is the pioneer of high temperature resistant polyamide. More than 30 years ago, DSM launched the breakthrough polyamide product stanyl PA46, which widened the application range of polyamide as a substitute for metal and as a raw material for connectors. And high temperature resistant polyamide substitutes, such as PPA fortii, have also entered the market. DSM is introducing a new generation of high temperature resistant polyamide products, which can meet more stringent requirements than before
