Strength, aesthetics and improved processing
Kalix® HPPA (high-performance polyamide) is designed for structural components used in smart mobile electronic devices. They provide high strength, rigidity and a high-quality surface finish along with improved processing.
Kalix® HPPA products are highly glass-filled compounds that can replace metal in structural mobile electronic components where strength, rigidity and aesthetics are important such as housings, covers, chassis and frames.
Different base resins are used to tailor performance and processing requirements. Processing improvements include lower warpage, reduced shrinkage, and low to no flash.
Bio-sourced and halogen-free flame retardant grades are available.
