Partnership Concerning Optic Applications
EMS-Grivory Cooperates with API-Trinseo
EMS-Grivory AG, Domat/Ems, Switzerland, has a tailor-made portfolio of polyamides for optic applications. In order to offer customers well-founded solutions with regard to hard/soft combinations, the Swiss polyamide manufacturer will be cooperating with elastomer manufacturer API-Trinseo.
For many glasses applications it is necessary to over-mold a hard polyamide substrate with a soft elastomer. High bonding strength between the polyamide and the elastomer is extremely important throughout the whole duration of use. For this reason, EMS-Grivory has started a development partnership with API-Trinseo.
The cooperation has two goals: First, it is intended to offer products from the existing product portfolios of both companies which bond reliably and durably according to the VDI 2019 standard in each case; and second, during the cooperation work, new products will be developed and tailor-made to suit each other. Both bio and crude oil based products with different shore hardness values will be developed and examined.
