PK – Polyketone PK

AKROTEK® PK-VM 8 black (6466)

1700 MPa

n.b. kJ/m²

AKROTEK® PK-VM 8 black (6466) is an unreinforced, low viscous polyketone. The material fulfills the requirements according to the KTW guidline for cold and hot water and the DVGW worksheet W 270.

Typical applications

Mainly components in domestic and industrial applications that are in contact with food or drinking water.



Processing information

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.
