The materials in this product family are polyamides manufactured on the basis of partially aromatic monomers. They broaden the application spectrum of polyamides into the range of high-temperature thermoplastic materials. The main application areas for Grivory products are in die-cast applications where glass-fibre reinforced grades are used for metal replacement. Non-reinforced Grivory grades are used in the field of cosmetics and for carbonised soft-drinks bottles.
Grilamid PA 12 is a high-performance thermoplastic material, based on laurolactam and tried and proven in numerous high-quality applications for more than 40 years. These include precision injection-moulding, in electronic applications for example, as well as for sanitary fittings, fuel and air brake lines and sheathing for fibre optical wave guides.
Under the trade name Grilon, EMS-GRIVORY offers a wide range of polyamide 6, polyamide 66 and copolyamide grades which have proven their worth in use for many years now. Through modification of these standard grades, EMS-GRIVORY continues to develop new Grilon specialities for demanding technical applications, such as food packaging with high oxygen barrier properties, flame-resistant grades for the electro and electronics segment and many applications in automotive construction.
GreenLine is the designation for for a new range of bio-based speciality polyamides from EMS-GRIVORY. GreenLine products are based fully or partially on castor oil derivatives, a completely renewable resource originating from a non-food crop.
