If you stop to think about the kitchen appliances and white goods we had in our homes a decade ago, you will be amazed to see how much safer, smarter, and sleeker these products have become.
Finding the best material solution has always been a major force driving industry evolution for appliance makers. Technyl® polyamide from Solvay Engineering Plastics is the smart choice for many appliances, as its strong mechanical properties, combined with chemical and temperature resistance, ensures the highest possible level of safety. 
All the regulatory approvals you need are already in place for any type of application involving contact with food and water. Another feature highly appreciated by our customers is that Technyl® polyamide offers designers unlimited freedom to combine desirable visual aesthetics with function integration.
Polyamide compounds can now be found in nearly every household, in applications ranging from washing machine door hinges to the brewing units in capsule coffee makers. Solvay Engineering Plastics continues to work closely with industry leaders to make household appliances even more affordable. Our Technyl® range products are far less corrosive than traditional fire-resistant materials, which simplifies processing and increases production equipment lifetime. 
At the same time, Technyl® halogen-free polyamides are much more than a means to respect industry standards. With our customers, we share a strong commitment to leverage our innovative technologies as a means to reduce ecological impact.
