Amodel® polyphthalamide (PPA) is an aromatic polyamide that outperforms standard polyamides with higher strength and stiffness at elevated temperatures, better retention of properties in humid environments, and greater resistance to a broader range of chemicals.

Algoflon® PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) is a family of fully-fluorinated polymers that provide: Chemical inertness, outstanding temperature resistance, low coefficient of friction, exceptional release and water repellent properties and outstanding heat resistance.

AvaSpire® PAEK (polyaryletherketone) is a family of high-performance polyketones tailored to fill cost and performance gaps between PEEK and other high-performance polymers.

Partially fluorinated semi-crystalline polymers offering outstanding chemical, permeation and fire resistance, low permeability, excellent weatherability and release properties

Hyflon® MFA1

Hyflon® PFA1

Ixef® PARA (polyarylamide) provides a unique combination of strength and aesthetics, making it ideal for complex parts that require both overall strength and a smooth, beautiful surface.

Kalix® HPPA (high-performance polyamide) is designed for structural components used in smart mobile electronic devices. They provide high strength, rigidity and a high-quality surface finish along with improved processing.

PEEK is one of the highest performance thermoplastics, surpassed only by Solvay’s Torlon® PAI. Its chemical resistance is similar to PPS (polyphenylene sulfide), but PEEK can operate at higher temperatures, retaining its excellent mechanical properties at continuous-use temperatures up to 240 °C; allowing it to replace metal in severe end-use environments. 

Omnix® HPPA is a family of high-performance polyamides that bridge the cost-performance gap between lower performing PA66 and higher performing polyphthalamide, such as Amodel® PPA.

Polymist® and Algoflon® L micronized powders are a family of PTFE powders specially developed for use as additives in other materials.

Tecnoflon® FKM and PFR FFKM (fluoroelastomers and perfluoroelastomers) are designed for demanding sealing applications in aggressive chemical and high heat environment.

Ryton® PPS (polyphenylene sulfide) compounds offer a unique combination of properties and a cost/performance balance unmatched by other engineering thermoplastics.

Radel® PPSU delivers the highest performance of our sulfone polymers, offering better impact resistance and chemical resistance than polysulfone and polyetherimide.

Radel® PPSU delivers the highest performance of our sulfone polymers, offering better impact resistance and chemical resistance than polysulfone and polyetherimide.

Veradel® PESU combines good chemical resistance with a high heat deflection temperature of 204°C (399°F), making it a good fit for food service applications. Inherent flame-retardant properties make it well-suited for electronic components and testing devices.
