ECONAMID® - SUSTAINABLE POLYAMIDES
The environmental behaviour of our industry’s businesses and companies is indisputable one of the most important issues of the last decade. Businesses need to acknowledge their responsibilities and act accordingly. We at DOMO Chemicals have decided early on to do everything in our power to close the loop. ‘Loop-closing’, in terms of ecology, means creating links between different industries with the purpose of industrial secondary feedstock reprocessing.
And that is exactly what we are aiming at with our ECONAMID® range.
The ECONAMID® engineering plastics range offers a complete assortment of sustainable PA6 and PA66 compounds, based on high quality pre-consumer fiber feedstock, secured by reliable, long-term supply agreements. As a result, we can confidently state that our ECONAMID® range offers ecology and durability while offering the highest industry quality standard.
Many of our ECONAMID® products are customized and have been developed in close collaboration with our business partners, for applications in Automotive, E&E, Building & Constructing, Sports & Leisure. DOMO Engineering Plastics was the first European producer to obtain the UL Environment validation.
ECONAMID® matches concern for our future with untarnished quality and competitive pricing. By using unique fibre feedstock, monitoring our energy consumption and using renewable energy sources we have managed to produce a top-quality ‘green’ range of products.
Our whole ECONAMID® product range stems from an acute and exigent need in our reference markets. More specifically: the need for ecological yet affordable products and raw materials without making any sacrifice whatsoever to quality.
ECONAMID® AIR is the flagship among this product family. This innovative solution grants reduced surface and volume resistivity for various different levels of electrical conductivity. These additional properties can be used by OEM and TIER in the development of connectors, fuel filtering components, LIDAR, camera housings and electronic components. Thanks to the combination of high quality recycled carbon fiber and sustainable polyamide, ECONAMID® AIR allows for a significant reduction of CO2 emission without affecting mechanical properties.
Besides excellent stiffness and electrical conductivity, ECONAMID® AIR compounds offer high tensile and impact strength comparable to virgin PA with prime carbon fibers. In addition, they also provide enhanced tribological properties, high heat deflection temperature and excellent flame retardancy.
Many of DOMO’s advanced ECONAMID® material solutions are custom-developed in close collaboration with business partners. The product offering is complemented by specialized prototyping and simulation services, helping engineers design high-performance, aesthetic and safer applications with minimized environmental impact.
