Films from Aliphatic Polyketone AKROTEK® PK-HM natural (4773)
The compounder AKRO-PLASTIC GmbH, located in Niederzissen in the Rhineland-Palatinate region of Germany, manufactures aliphatic polyketone (PK) compounds which exhibit superb hydrolysis resistance. These products are characterised by extremely high barrier properties against fuel and oxygen as well as minimal wear and tear with homogeneous mating and extremely high resilience. Reason enough for LITE GmbH from Gaflenz, Austria to use this material for special films.
LITE GmbH manufactures special films for use in high-temperature applications. To complement its comprehensive product portfolio, the company has opted to manufacture films from AKROTEK® PK-HM natural (4773), an aliphatic polyketone from AKRO-PLASTIC. “We were impressed by the material’s exceptional universal property profile. Particularly noteworthy properties include its excellent chemical resistance to fuel and its hydrolysis resistance. High impact strength combined with a low brittle point (-40° C) and a generally good wearing quality round out the versatile material profile. We also see great potential for achieving specific mechanical, thermal or tribological properties using filler-modified grades,” says Mr Daniel, Managing Director at LITE.
Polyketone film is available in thicknesses of 50 to 500 µm at a maximum width of 400 mm.
