Hostaform S 9362 and S 9363
Additional High-Impact Grades
Ticona GmbH, Kelsterbach, Germany, has expanded its line of highly impact-resistant, modified acetal copolymers (POM) through the addition of two new grades (Hostaform S 9362 and S 9363. Like the already established product S 9364, they offer better performance than previous, conventional Impact-resistant POM grades. These graves thus satisfy the ever more demanding requirements encountered in automotive, safety, industrial and sports applications. For instance, as the result of its modified structure the highly impact-resistant grade Hostaform S 9364 provides up to 75% greater impact resistance in conjunction with up to 300% higher knit line strength. The new Hostaform-grades S 9362 and S 9363 permit productivity improvements through faster cycles with up to 40% shorter cooling time and less downtime due to reduced plate-out in the mold. They have in addition a higher heat deflection temperature (HDT), a higher modulus of elasticity and greater strength than comparable grades on the market.
Typical applications for impact-resistant POM include fasteners with exceptional chemical resistance as well as industrial applications that require great physical characteristics. POM also provides the ideal prerequisites for windshield washer end caps, which require impact resistance in addition to outstanding dimensional stability.
