Flexibility, stress, abrasion, chemical resistance, heat stability
PVC, polyolefin or polyamide tubes may be produced with Mesgo Mirach® PVC, Altair® PE, Avior® PP and Mizar® PA compounds, also with perfect color matching.
Flexible and spiral tubes may be obtained with Arkema Evatane® EVA or Lotryl® EMA, EBA copolymers for air conveying systems of air, dust, industrial fumes and gases, or fluids. Evatane® EVA is an advantageous Solution for flexible PVC replacement.
Standard PE, PP, EVA, EMA, EBA virgin polymers and various compounds are also regularly available at Speedy Polymers at advantageous prices with special offers, off-specs, slow movings from the major world producers.
Kureha KF Polymer PVDF (Poly-Vinylidene-Fluoride) is a fluoropolymer showing excellent resistance to abrasion, mechanical stress, chemical corrosion and heat. KF Polymer resin exerts the highest whiteness and purity on the market, and it is less expensive than other fluoropolymers.
Short and long chain polyamides are also often used for their good combination of chemical and thermal resistance. Specific PA6 and PA6.6 compounds for chemical resistance are available with Poliblend Polimid® portfolio. Specific tailor-made Ambramid® PA6 and PA6.6 can also be developed.
Long-chain polyamides are available with Nexis Fibers PA6.10 and 6.12, bridging the gap between PA6, PA6.6 and PA11, PA12, with intermediate properties in terms of flexibility, heat and chemical resistance, water adsorption and dimensional stability. Mesgo developed specific Mizar® PA6 compounds showing outstanding thermal and chemical resistance at affordable price, where expensive long-chain PA12 would be otherwise required.
Flexible, soft and anti-scratch tubes, showing at the same time very high thermal, chemical, corrosion and microbial resistance can be obtained with Sipol Sipolprene® TPC-ET or Arkema Pebax® PEBA thermoplastic elastomer block copolymers. Applications include for example transport of fluids (air, gases, liquids) even under conditions of extreme pressure, temperature span from very cold to heat, corrosion, such as in automotive, industries, industrial cleaning, marine, etc.
Ambra TPC Regrind Black 1 is a 100% post-industrial TPC-ET block copolyester regrind from a single-source automotive application with very high mechanical, chemical and thermal resistance, with similar properties and very attractive price and environmental footprint.
Solutions for the injection moulding of pipe and hose connectors include compounds by Mepol Meplen® and ecoMeplen® PP, Poliblend Polimid® and Secomid® PA6 and PA6.6, Lotte Starex® ABS, Kureha KF Polymer PVDF and may be find at the Sections “E+E, HOME, OFFICE, INDUSTRIAL, CONSUMER” and “TRANSPORTS”.
