Ultramid Advanced T1000 offers decisive advantages regarding mechanical properties,resistance to humidity and chemicals as well as for processing.
–highest strength and stiffness of all Ultramid grades and stable mechanical properties up to temperatures of about 120 °C (dry) and 80 °C in conditioned state (fig. 2).
–improved long-term mechanical performance under constant loads in presence of humidity and at elevated temperatures, e.g. as shown by creep test results at room temperature in conditioned state (fig. 3).
Outstanding resistance to humidity and chemicals:
–higher chemical resistance compared to standard aliphatic polyamides in contact with many challenging media such as hot coolants, oils, aggressive fuels, and solutions of road salts containing calcium or zinc ions (fig. 4).
–lower water uptake than many aliphatic polyamides such as PA6 or PA66 resulting in high dimensional stability and small impact on properties (fig. 5).
–simple processing by injection molding
–several post-processing options such as welding with other Ultramid Advanced T1000 grades, polyamides or PPAs in general, and laser marking.
Ultramid Advanced T1000 can be applied in parts that require high and constant stiffness as well as strength over a temperature range from -40 °C to over 80 °C together with resistance to heat and challenging media. Such applications can be found in:
–the transportation industry: in areas where materials have to remain strong in whatever temperatures or difficult climates.
–all other industries where strength and resistance to humidity or chemicals are required.
Ultramid Advanced T1000 can be easily processed with standard injection molding machines. Being a material with a very high melting point of 320 °C as well as a high glass transition temperature,the optimum processing conditions need to be chosen accordingly:the melt temperature range should be between 330 °C and 350 °C,mold temperatures between 140 °C and 160 °C.
Ultramid Advanced T1000 is not sensitive against changing processing conditions such as variations in dosing or injection speed.
It can be processed with hot runner systems and needle valve nozzles.
Ultramid grades are molding compounds on the basis of PA6, PA66 and various co-polyamides such as PA66/6. The range also includes PA610 and semi-aromatic polyamides such as PA6T/6. The molding compounds are available unreinforced, reinforced with glass fibers or minerals and also reinforced with long-glass fibers for special applications. Ultramid is noted for its high mechanical strength, stiffness and thermal stability. In addition, Ultramid offers good toughness at low temperatures, favorable sliding friction behavior and can be processed without any problems.
The most important properties of Ultramid:
High strength and rigidity
Very good impact strength
Outstanding resistance to chemicals
Low tendency to creep
Because of the manifold and tailor-made characteristics of Ultramid many applications are possible, especially in automotive construction, electrical engineering and electronics, in household technology, industrial connection, photovoltaics, in construction and installation, furniture, the sanitary industry and in mechanical engineering.
Ultramid can be processed by all methods known for thermoplastics. The main methods are injection molding and extrusion. Complex moldings are economically manufactured in large numbers from Ultramid by injection molding. The extrusion method is used to produce films, semi-finished products, pipes, profiled parts, sheet and monofilaments. Semi-finished products are usually further processed by cutting tools to form finished molded parts.
