Lanxess developed a new polyamide for physical and chemical foaming

April 07/2011

(Lanxess) -- Despite major benefits, foaming processes in the past have been unsuccessful in gaining widespread acceptance for use in injection molding. One of the reasons for this was the poor surface quality of the resultant components. To counteract this problem, Lanxess has developed a new polyamide 6 and polyamide 66 Durethan designed specifically for physical and chemical foaming.

Both materials produce excellent molded part surfaces that in most cases are smooth and flawless with virtually no opalescent streaks or areas that appear porous. They are therefore suitable for applications that also place high demands on the visual quality of the part such as visible components under the hood, states Maik Schulte, a development engineer at Lanxess.
