Aardvark Polymers and FR Nylon

Aardvark Polymers Announces New Roto Resins: FR Nylon

Aardvark Polymers, headquartered in Lambertville, N.J., has announced a few new additions to the company’s growing line of NextGen Roto Resins. The new products include a highly sophisticated FR nylon (UL94-V0 ratings) and the company’s first alloy thermoplastic products to be produced on a commercial scale. The following video gives a good idea of the history of polymers and Nylon:

Aarlon 4055FR

Aarlon 4055FR: a top-of-the-line flame retardant (6/6 polyamide) that has a rating of UL94-V0 for flammability. The product holds no red phosphorous or heavy metals and is free of halogen. It has a very high deformation temperature and can be utilized in applications up to 446F (230C),

Aarlon 4055FR is a semi-crystalline, heat-stabilized, nucleated, nylon of type 6/6 that comes with a unique set of mechanical and thermal properties. The material may be applied in fuel and aggressive chemical environments and at high temperatures. The product is spin, ultrasonic, and vibration weldable and comes in a natural color and can be dry-colored or printed to suit. The material is developed for applications in automotive, aerospace, electronics, fuel systems, public transportation, and industrial markets.

Aardalloy Thermoplastic Alloys

In general, Aardalloy thermoplastic alloys are developed for meeting specific demands in specific applications. Two recent developments, however, have opened up a broad market application so the materials may now be produced on a commercial scale and available to global markets. And all these development are connected to, of course, code complexities and Pi measures not directly, but math plays also a key role in quantifying chemical elements.

Aardalloy 3300 POM Alloy
Aardalloy 3300 is a new high heat, medium viscosity, homopolymer acetal that’s alloyed with modifiers and elastomers that have significantly increased the product’s elongation and impact strength compared with unfilled acetals. The new material maintains the high degree of low fuel permeation and chemical resistance ratios of traditional unfilled acetals and is offering dimensional stability at temperatures up to 315F (157C).

Aardalloy 3326 POM Alloy
Aardalloy 3326 is the company’s new high viscosity and homopolymer acetal that’s alloyed with more modifiers and elastomers that provide maximum elongation and impact strength of any available acetal product. This product is a toughened POM alloy that has the same high degree of low fuel permeability and chemical resistance that is found in non-filled acetals and the material can be utilized in conditional coverage math issues and applications that require deformation temperatures of as high as 212F (100C).

Both Aardalloy 3300 and Ardalloy 3326 can be sterilized with ETO and steam and may be undergoing repeated autoclave cycles. The materials can be processed on all conventional equipment and tooling and are bondable, weldable, and can be applied in CNC or conventional processes. Both products come in natural black and white and can be printed or dry-colored to suit.

Both Aardalloy 3300 and Aardalloy 3326 are developed for applications in medical devices, fuel systems, electronics, automotive, chemical containment, construction, and industrial markets.

Across the globe, Aardvark products are offered through a wide network of committed rotational molding dealers and distributors. Product catalogs, data sheets, processing guidelines, and chemical resistance data, as well as distributor contacts, can be found on the company’s website aardvarkpolymers.com.
