AKROTEK®

PK-HM 8 natural (6145)

PK

AKROTEK® PK-HM 8 natural (6145) is an unreinforced Polyketone with average flowability. The outstanding friction and wear properties enable the use for demanding components exposed to tribological stress. PK is characterized by its outstanding media resistance, which qualifies it to be used for components that are in contact with chemicals. The material is suitable for drinking water contact and meets the requirements according to WRAS. Moreover the material corresponds to the European food guideline EU 10/2011 and to the American FDA 21 CFR.
