The Ultramid® Advanced portfolio:
We provide the PPA you need.
For lightweight and high-performance parts to be used in many different applications – from the automotive and the E&E industries to mechanical engineering and consumer goods: the new polyphthalamide (PPA) portfolio by BASF:
The PPA portfolio is globally available. It is supplemented by BASF's simulation tool Ultrasim® and our profound experience in application development. So you can find the right material for the right part with a matching, tailor-made application profile.
BASF’s simulation tool Ultrasim® is used in the design of parts for all industries. With customized models, BASF has further developed the calculation tool in such a way that parts made of Ultramid® Advanced grades can also be simulated. Using Ultrasim®, the physical behavior of the part can be predicted on the basis of manufacturing parameters, fiber anisotropy and load direction or speed. The mathematical part optimization can furthermore provide the best possible design under the given conditions. Ultrasim® is therefore a unique tool for optimizing customer parts at a very early stage so that they can handle highest loads. With these precise predictions, costs and time associated with prototypes or extensive mold corrections can be avoided.
With its long experience as well as its technical and material expertise of engineering plastics, BASF can contribute to realize challenging applications and provide the most efficient technical solutions for PPA applications across all industries. Emerging trends in the markets result in challenges that need intensive joint discussions and learnings. BASF has the experts to engage with the relevant experts at processors, manufacturers and OEMs and thus to provide extensive information on materials, consultation on new application development and technical service for processing.
