EVONIK INTRODUCES NEW TROGAMID® MOLDING COMPOUND FOR OPTICAL APPLICATIONS
| Subj: New raws
Evonik has developed a new polyamide molding compound for optical applications. TROGAMID® myCX high flow offers crystal-clear transparency, excellent wear comfort and high durability along with improved processing capabilities.
This unique property profile makes the high-performance polymer a preferred material for high-end lenses and visors, e.g. in sun visors or ski goggles. The specialty chemicals company will present TROGAMID® myCX high flow at MIDO 2019 in Milan (Italy) from February 23 to 25.
Improved material processing for greater efficiency
Compared to similar high-performance materials, the significantly improved flowability of TROGAMID® myCX makes it possible to process the molding compound at a temperature profile that is at least 20°C lower. That enables greater energy efficiency and productivity in processing.
TROGAMID® myCX high flow, which stands out for its excellent transparency of over 90% and low density of 1.03 g/cm², was specifically designed for demanding optical applications such as premium lenses or high-end visors for ski and snowboard goggles. The high-performance polymer combines outstanding quality and freedom of design with maximum wear comfort. Due to its exceptional mechanical properties, resistance to stress cracking, and breaking strength, TROGAMID® myCX high flow guarantees the high levels of durability and safety that are essential for the optical industry. In addition, the new transparent polyamide by Evonik can be combined with all frame materials.
