For affordable, LCP-like performance and warp resistance, Stanyl PA46 High Flow

DSM Engineering Plastics (Sittard) : 09 October, 2003  (New Product)
DSM Engineering Plastics, a business group within the DSM Performance Materials cluster, announces the introduction of Stanyl PA46 High Flow.
With a heat and warp resistance similar to liquid crystal polymer (LCP), plus high flow characteristics for thinwall or highly detailed parts, Stanyl PA46 High Flow significantly lowers the cost of engineered materials for volume production. Stanyl PA46 High Flow is the latest addition to DSMís flagship Stanyl PA46 product family, and is particularly suited for thinwall applications in E and E. These include electrical connectors, pin headers, and more, thanks to the new materialís flow characteristics and resistance to warpage.

Weld line strength is significantly higher than LCP, minimizing cracking during pin insertion. For demanding thinwall applications, Stanyl High Flow grades can replace LCP, providing the properties of LCP at substantially reduced cost. As with all Stanyl PA46 offerings, Stanyl PA46 High Flow provides resistance to distortion at high heat to 290C (554F) - as well as superior mechanical properties, excellent wear and friction behaviour, and production cycle times shorter than conventional polyamide 6 and 66.

In other applications, Stanyl is also used for automotive parts such as engine parts, chain tensioners, transmission clutch rings, bearing cages and emission control components.

Finally, there are many other electrical, appliance, and power tool uses for Stanyl PA46 High Flow. Stanyl PA46 High Flow rounds out DSMís PA46 offering, which includes reinforced, lubricated, low-wear/low-friction, and flame-retardant (FR) grades. Anything that can benefit from thinwall or highly detailed parts that must face demanding ambient or use conditions can benefit from High Flow.
