Ixef® PARA provides a unique combination of strength and aesthetics, making it ideal for thin, complex parts needing overall strength, rigidity, high melt flow and a smooth, beautiful surface.
Ixef® PARA is part of polyamide family. It has inherent chemical resistance.
IXEF® compounds display a good resistance to chemical reagents. However the amide function in the resin matrix makes them sensitive to certain chemicals.
It is very rapidly degraded by:
It is degraded at ambient temperature by:
It is degraded at high temperature by:
Solvay has developed Ixef® PARA compounds with fillers and additives that are suitable to match FDA regulation.
The IXEF® compounds can be assembled by bonding without any difficulty. Four main types of adhesives have been evaluated for bonding IXEF® on IXEF® and IXEF® on steel:
Two part Acrylics
Modified Silane Adhesive/Sealants
