Victorinox knives: safe in the hand with POLYfill® touch
6 February 2017
Victorinox saves material and energy costs with POLYfill® touch from Polykemi. The extraordinary properties of this material from Polykemi ensure a secure hold.
POLYfill® HC is a highly crystalline, glass-fiber-reinforced, rigid PP which replaces engineering plastics such as PA or PBT.
COST SAVINGS IN MATERIAL AND ENERGY
Due to its low density, you process significantly less material than with PA and PBT. Comparing POLYfill® HC with 30% glass fibers with the same PA6 and PBT, the density of PA6 is about 20% higher than that of POLYfill® HC, that of PBT even 35% higher. In addition, you save valuable time and money due to lower processing temperatures and the elimination of pre-drying.
- Improved impact strength
- Higher modulus of elasticity even at elevated temperatures
- Additional great density advantage
