Technyl® REDx smart molecules stand up to the heat

Solvay’s Technyl® REDx self-reinforcing heat resistant smart molecule is proving its value for the automotive industry.
Technyl® REDx is the only Polyamide 6.6 solution to integrate its own self-strengthening technology, whose robustness increases significantly as temperature rises. In baseline investigations BMW ran tests confirming the real-world performance of Technyl® REDx under extreme conditions.
The Technyl® REDx smart molecule can be processed at mold temperatures below 100°C, making it practical and cost effective to work with. The quality of both its surface aspect and long-term thermal stability is satisfying BMW’s demanding quality requirements. This approval is expected to create new development opportunities with BMW, one of the world’s leading automobile manufacturers.
