Vestamid HTplus TGP3717
Replacement for Metals
Evonik Industries AG, Essen, Germany, has developed a new base polymer for the plastics industry. Vestamid HTplus TGP3717 is distinguished by stable mechanical properties at sustained high temperatures.
The new high-temperature polymer can withstand mechanical stress up to 135°C; the glass transition temperature is 155°C. While the modulus of elasticity of a standard product falls by approximately 80% at 120°C, the decrease for Evonik’s new base polymer is only 15%. Thanks to its high crystallinity, the new plastic material has the properties typical of the Vestamid HTplus product range such as very good chemical resistance and dimensional stability and simple processing.
Vestamid HTplus from Evonik has been specially developed as a substitute for metal in classic metal applications such as highly filled molding compounds. The high-temperature stable, semicrystalline material is based on polyphthalamide (PPA).
