PK – Polyketone PK
AKROTEK® PK-HM natural (4773)
AKROTEK® PK-HM natural (4773) is an unreinforced polyketone with average flowability.
Mainly components in mechanical engineering and the automotive industry.
The listed values are recommendations. Higher values should be used for higher glass loadings. We recommend only de-humidifying or vacuum dryers. Extensive drying can cause filling problems and surface defects.

The molding machine needs to be purged with polyolefines before and after processing of AKROTEK® PK! There is a risk of cross linking caused by reactions with POM or PA as well as unsuitable master batches! Cross linking is visible through dark spots! In this case purge immediately with polyolefines.
