Description

EcoPaXX® is our bio-based, high-performance polyamide (PA410) that offers outstanding performance across the board, while being made mainly from tropical castor beans which don’t compete with the food chain.
EcoPaXX® belongs to the family of long-chain polyamides, which offer exceptional performance in the most demanding of environments. That includes excellent chemical resistance, low moisture absorption, combined with a very high melting point (highest of all bio-plastics) and high crystallization rate (typical for engineering plastics like PA66 and PA46).
EcoPaXX® has the lowest carbon footprint amongst common polyamides. This is because the amount of carbon dioxide emitted during the production of EcoPaXX® is offset by the amount absorbed in plant growth, and in particular by the riccinus communis – the tropical castor bean plant that makes up some 70% of EcoPaXX®. Externally certified lifecycle analysis (LCA) data is available upon request.
