performance materials experts, said that Durethan Performance will enable it to replace PA66 in numerous applications, but it will always be difficult for PA66 to be ousted in applications that require short-term resistance to very high temperatures, simply because PA66 has a melting point that is almost 45°C higher; it also has better resistance to hot glycol found under the hood. “It may be possible to improve the glycol resistance of PA6, but it is not a simple task,” says Heinen. Lanxess offers 66 and 6 types of polyamide

experiments. “Durethan BKV30PH2.0 showed a service life around three times longer than a standard PA6 with 30% glass fibre reinforcement at a bending load of 2.75kN,” Linder says. Lanxess plans to further expand the family, beginning with compounds containing 50 and 60% glass, which Linder says will be particularly suitable for dynamically loaded structural components such as carriers of electrical and electronic modules in lightweight automobiles. At Fakuma, Ralf Heinen, one of Lanxess’ high


(Durethan A and B), although it is only “native” in PA6 polymer; it obtains PA66 through swap deals, which is quite a common feature in the polyamides world.


At DSM, Global Business Director Joost d’Hooghe


reckons around 70% of parts can be made in either PA6 or 66. He says that while PA66, with its higher Tg, withstands short-term high-temperature peaks better, PA6 shows better long-term ageing. But another alternative to PA66 is DSM’s EcoPaXX PA410, which d’Hooghe says can be considered like a “high-end 66” with very good hydrolysis resistance. DSM is already selling EcoPaXX for expansion tanks that were previously in PA66.
