Michael A. Roberts

Meeting EU Requirements, Chemlon® 500 Series Compounds Exhibit Good Surface Appearance, Dimensional Stability, and Lot-to-Lot Consistency

PAWTUCKET, RI, U.S.A., February 22, 2018: Drawing on extensive experience in the USA with recycled polyamide compounds, Teknor Apex Company has met stringent European Union standards for these materials and now makes them available throughout Europe.

Chemlon® 500 Series products comprise a full range of engineering thermoplastics based on recycled polyamide 66, including unfilled, impact-modified, and glass-reinforced compounds. The product range is supported by Teknor Apex’s upstream recycling capabilities, including a consistent supply of high-quality polyamide fiber feedstocks. Teknor Apex recommends the compounds for automotive, office furniture, and other applications where cost savings or mandates for recycled content are key considerations.

“The assured quality of Chemlon 500 Series compounds is based on our broad experience with polyamides, both virgin and recycled,” said Michael A. Roberts, vice president in charge of the Engineering Thermoplastics Division of Teknor Apex. “These compounds process with a high degree of lot-to-lot consistency and yield finished products that exhibit good surface appearance and dimensional stability.”

Teknor Apex compounds polyamides in the U.S., Germany, and Singapore. Its engineering thermoplastics include reinforced and specially modified compounds of polyamide 6, 66, 610, and 612 under the Chemlon brand; and exceptionally high-performance Creamid® and Duramid® polyamides based on diverse resins.
