Technyl® is a brand family of polyamide-based engineering plastic
The engineering plastic Technyl® is based on PA6 and PA66 as well as on various co-polyamides such as PA66/6. The product is available for a range of demanding applications automotive, construction, consumer electronics, consumer goods industries, as well as various industrial applications.
The most important applications of Technyl®
Many applications are possible, especially in automotive, construction, consumer electronics , industrial and consumer goods industries.
Technyl® can be processed by all methods known for thermoplastics. The main methods are injection molding and extrusion. Complex moldings are economically manufactured in large numbers from Technyl® by injection molding. The extrusion method is used to produce films, semi-finished products, pipes, profiled parts, sheet and monofilaments. Semi-finished products are usually further processed by cutting tools to form finished molded parts.
The basis of the Technyl® grades are polyamides which are supplied in a variety of molecular weights or viscosities, have a range of additives.
The Technyl® range comprises the following groups of products:
Technyl® BLUE range is a heat stabilized material family for automotive thermal management combining superior hydrolysis and thermal ageing performance in presence of aggressive coolants.
Technyl® ORANGE, a brand-new range of fire-resistant products for high-voltage automotive components and cabling in electric vehicles.
Technyl® ranges meet growing demand for downsized engines that combine lightweight performance and power output.
Technyl® One is a new polymer technology patented by Solvay that effectively yields high temperature performance.
Technyl STAR® encompasses high flowability grades that offer unmatched freedom for part design.
Technyl eXten® is a partially bio-sourced polyamide. It allows to reduce the carbon footprint and to preserve non-renewable resources.
Technyl® Max caters for powertrain system mass in electrical vehicles and their strong demand for cost-effective light-weighting solutions.
Please note that BASF does not sell or distribute any Technyl grades to customers and distributors inside the European Economic Area and Switzerland.
