AKRO-PLASTIC Best in Polyamide
AKRO-PLASTIC produces high-strength polyamide compounds. The latest development is AKROLOY® PARA ICF 40 (6128) black, a 40% carbon fibre reinforced polyamide. With almost 40 GPa stiffness and 420 MPa flexural strength it is one of the strongest grades in our portfolio. The bucket produced by our Brazilian customer Ucelo do Brasil (https://www.ucelo.com.br/) shows the outstanding characteristics of this grade. The video is shows a stress test with a 6.5 tons tractor with almost 3.5 tons tare weight on the back wheels.
This is what we call metal substitution.

Highly reinforced compounds are ideal for use in automotive interiors where stiffness and high toughness are important. They are frequently used in airbag components, cup holders, glove compartment handles, air duct holders, multifunction switches and switch housings.
Metal Substitution and Weight Reduction
Driving down costs and reducing weight has been a critical objective in many industries. One of the most effective ways of achieving this is to substitute metal with plastic.
