Ems-Grivory Receives the European Plastics Innovation Award

Ems-Grivory, a Swiss polyamide specialist, received the European Plastics Innovation Award in the category "Hybrid Product" for its Grilamid products in Brussels. They are used by sport article manufacturer Arc'teryx to make a ultra-lightweight touring ski boot: the Procline Lite.

The Arc'teryx Procline Lite is a two-in-one solution for mountaineers. A ski and mountaineering boot which can be used for both difficult climbing routes as well as challenging downhill descents. For the shell, Amer Sports used a specially modified, cold-impact strength Grilamid, which is characterized by low density, good UV resistance, high surface quality and good flowability in injection molding processes. This made it possible to realise a very thin-walled component. A further feature is the stiffness which remains nearly constant over a very wide temperature range.

The patented shell system for the uppers is made using long-carbon fiber reinforced Grilamid, which has high stiffness and strength but an also low density. This has the advantage that the boot gives better control when used walking uphill in the "walking mode" while providing the necessary stability during the downhill descent in "skiing mode". This Grilamid grade also has excellent cold impact strength.

The European Plastics Innovation Award was instituted by the pan-European trade association PlasticsEurope and the Society of Plastics Engineers, SPE. The awards honor companies that use plastics to develop new ideas, methods, products or technologies that meet the needs of society while respecting the demands of sustainability.
