Nilamid XT Semi-Crystalline Polyphthalamide Compounds

For Parts Working at High Temperature

Nilit Plastics,Migdal Haemek, Israel, is introducing NILAMID XT semi-crystalline polyphthalamides for injection molding customers who need purpose-designed high performance materials for parts working at high temperature.

Polyphthalamides are partially aromatic polyamides that have superior resistance to high temperatures in combination with excellent mechanical properties, high dimensional stability, and very good chemical resistance. Nilit Plastics will aim Nilamid XT compounds at two segments in particular, for which it expects strong demand in Europe: automotive/transportation and general industry (including appliances).

Polyphthalamides are already used in a number of components in the key markets being targeted by Nilit Plastics. These include automobile under the hood components, bushings and bearings, often as substitutes for metals that weigh and cost more on a part volume basis. Savings are also being achieved in appliances, where PPA has often replaced brass in such parts as water heater manifolds, valve bodies and coolant pumps. “Many of these are established applications, but specifier needs are changing and becoming more refined,” says Arno Wolf, Vice President, Performance Polymers, at Nilit Plastics. “This can result in a lower demand for individual grades, and this is where we come in. Nilit Plastics has dedicated significant resources to R&D and to manufacturing equipment in Germany and Italy, and we are ideally positioned to develop tailor made PPA compounds with very specific properties.”

The Nilamid XT family will complement existing families of high performance polyamide-based compounds that Nilit Plastics has introduced in recent months. The company already offers “enhanced polyamide 6.6” branded as Nilamid XS, for example, intended principally for metal replacement applications.
