The semi-finished products from Tecarim have an excellent resistance to impact and abrasion.
The application temperature ranges from -60C to +120C The high abrasion resistance characteristic of polyamides has been improved in the case of Tecarim and can be used advantageously, particularly in the low temperature range.
The high-performance polyamide 6 block copolymers are produced in the reactive casting process RIM (reaction injection moulding).
Liquid basic materials are cast into a form and react subsequently.
The material properties can be adjusted according to the application by means of reinforcement materials, elastomer content, additives and fillers.
The standard Tecarim plates and rods contain 15 per cent of an elastomeric copolymer.
Variants with different elastomeric contents between 10 and 40 per cent are available on request.
Tough and low-abrasive parts, as well as parts without brittle fracture, can be machined for their use under extreme circumstances.
According to their properties, the position of Tecarim semi-finished parts is between polyamides and polyurethane.
The scope of the Tecarim products are machine, plant and functioning parts with high dynamic load and abrasion resistance.
Further applications are heavily loaded plastic parts for the petroleum and gas industry or special-purpose vehicles such as cable cars, ski lifts and snow tractors.
Rods are available with diameters of 30, 40, 50, 65, 79, 100, 110 and 150mm, plates are 30, 50, 60, 80 and 100mm thick.
Manufacture of parts by the Tecarim custom cast process is particularly suited to cases of extreme wall thickness variation.
Besides, the integration of insert parts and reinforcing materials it is also unproblematic in moulding.
The customer support of these custom cast products will be carried out by Tecarim Ensinger , Linz, Austria
