Evonik to present a new molding compound

Evonik to present a new molding compound

News 17.01.2019

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.
