Polyamide Compounds Grivory GVX and Grivory/Grilon LFT
Strong like Steel
The specifically developed products Grivory GVX, that is filled with up to 70% with glass fibers, and the long glass fiber-reinforced Grivory/Grilon LFT by Ems-Chemie, Domat/Ems, Switzerland, offer an interesting alternative to metal.
Grivory GVX is characterised by a previously unachieved combination of maximum stiffness and strength with optimal processability. Through a considerably improved fiber-matrix interaction, strength values of up to 300 MPa and stiffness values of nearly 30,000 MPa have been achieved. These are unique properties even in the class of high-performance polymers. In addition, due to intensive research work, the processing properties of Grivory GVX have been improved to such a degree that injection molded parts can be manufactured at very low pressures and with an exceptionally low tendency to warp.
Complementary to Grivory GVX, Ems-Grivory also offers a series of new long fiber products which are consolidated under the name PA LFT. The long fiber technology leads to a significant increase in specific energy absorption, low tracking index and increased heat resistance as well as clearly improved isotropy. This means that the application spectrum based on the product families Grilon, Grivory GV and Grivory HT can be further clearly extended.
Cost-saving potential using Grivory GVX oder Grivory LFT lies between 30 and 50%. With the exceptional property spectrum of these materials replacement of metal in existing applications has reached a new dimension.
