DSM Engineering Plastics (Sittard, The Netherlands) introduces new high-modulus, high-finish Akulon Ultraflow K-FG0 polyamide 6 (PA6) resin, its new high-flow grade, featuring 50 percent glass-fiber reinforcement, combining high modulus with improved aesthetics. The new grade can achieve significant part cost reduction for molded parts when compared with conventional PA6 and PA6/6 grades. Cost reduction is accomplished, for example, through possible cycle time reduction, use of a smaller amount of material to produce parts of comparable performance and elimination of painting.
