Mitsubishi Chemical Advanced Materials Commercializes the World's Strongest Injection Moldable Polymer Compounds
MESA, Ariz., Nov. 11, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

As the leading manufacturer of high-performance thermoplastics, Mitsubishi 
Chemical Advanced Materials, (MCAM) has been perfecting its KyronMAX(R) 
platform since 2014. KyronMAX(R) polymers are now 20% lighter and 20-50% 
stronger, exhibiting tensile strengths above 61,000 psi (420 MPa) and modulus 
above 6,300,000 psi (43.5 GPa).

A series of the highest-performance carbon fiber composite materials available 
today, KyronMAX(R) is the next generation in injection moldable metal 
replacement technology. But it is also much more than just a matchless range of 
engineered materials. As Randy White, Chief Innovation Officer explains, "The 
uniqueness of KyronMAX is that it is not only available today in over 20 of the 
strongest drop-in ready polymers on the planet, but often becomes a true 
partnership – where we collaborate with each customer to develop a formula to 
specifically fit their unique application". The KyronMAX(R) technology platform 
is currently formulated in various thermoplastics including PA, Low Moisture 
PA, PPA, Hi-Temp PPA, PC, PPS and PEEK with more in development.
The KyronMAX(R) platform combines design engineering, material science, and 
technology to help change the way prototyping, sustainability, and indeed 
materials manufacturing and supply operate.

By integrating multiple technologies within one facility, KyronMAX(R) helps 
simplify supply chains, improve process flow, and creates more cost-effective 
solutions, while delivering superior performance, and a zero-waste, end-of-life 
recycling program. 

"We embrace the circular economy and therefore we are proud to offer our 
business partners a closed-loop supply chain as part of the engineering 
partnership of KyronMAX(R). These efforts aim at minimizing the impact on the 
environment and maximizing the contribution to a sustainable future. We call 
this KAITEKI Value for tomorrow."
Ron Denoo, Chief Strategy Officer

As customers continue to search for the strongest moldable polymers available. 
KyronMAX(R) materials consistently outperform LFT polymers, especially when 
measuring the performance of the as molded part. KyronMAX(R) composites 
overcome all the limitations associated with LFT compounds while yielding 
stronger parts that are also lighter in weight.
