DOMO Chemicals at Fakuma 2017 - A global polyamide expert covering a wide range of markets

At Fakuma DOMO Chemicals shows its innovation capabilities and expertise, globally covering a wide range of markets where Polyamide 6 is key. Future trends affecting the needs of these markets are reflected in DOMO’s market approach.

Looking ahead
On the DOMO Chemicals booth at Fakuma two DOMO business units, DOMO Engineering Plastics and DOMO Nylon & Intermediates, present their innovative capabilities in a solutions targeted market approach. The markets of Textile Fibres, Flexible Packaging, Electric & Electronic, Industrial & Consumer Goods, Automotive, Oil & Gas, Transport and Agriculture have specific needs for polyamide applications, with an increased focus on products that are in line with future trends as E-mobility, autonomous driving, connectivity, sustainability, carbon footprint reduction, smart and flexible packaging. In this context DOMO offers innovative, efficient and sustainable solutions for its customers, backed by a global supply and service.

Trustful brands keep evolving
Five brands cover DOMO’s customers polyamide and compounds needs in a wide range of markets: DOMAMID®, ECONAMID®, DOMOLEN®, THERMEC™ and ECOMASS®.

The DOMO Engineering Plastics division presents its engineered DOMAMID® polymers for metal replacement, high fluidity, high stiff and aesthetical applications. With THERMEC™, polymers with enhanced Performance at High Temperatures, and ECOMASS®, high density engineering plastics designed to replace metallic materials, DOMO Engineering plastics offers now a broad portfolio for state-of-the-art applications. 

ECONAMID®, the range of sustainable nylon compounds of DOMO, strengthens its sustainability claims by the Environmental Product Declaration certification (EPD), issued by a third party (Sweden Environdec). Using ECONAMID® reduces up to 97% CO2 emissions (GWP) in comparison to virgin polyamide. Its outstanding characteristics and application possibilities make it the sustainable choice for many applications in a wide variety of markets.

New virgin polymers for all segments
The DOMO Nylon & Intermediates division is producing a wide portfolio of polyamide 6 (PA6) virgin resins with applications in engineering plastics, fibres & film extrusion. During this years’ FAKUMA edition, DOMO Nylon & Intermediates is officially launching new PA6 grades in all three segments:

For the engineering plastics business DOMO Nylon & Intermediates shows DOMAMID®H22, a new, ultra-low viscosity polyamide. This high-flow, easy processable virgin polymer is perfectly suited for high filled compounds, and is suitable for long glass fibres in regards to nearly all injection molding applications.

For the fibre business, DOMO Nylon & Intermediates launches DOMAMID®H27 S05 – a modified PA6 for BCF, which achieves 30% lower shrinkage during heat setting compared to average shrinkage in case of using standard PA6.

For film extrusion, a new high viscosity range with DOMAMID®H33, H36 and H40 is now available; either pure or in finished version (lubricated or lubricated and nucleated).
DOMO Chemicals will exhibit its range of products and solutions at Fakuma 2017 in Hall B4 Booth 4216.
