Eurostars project E! 9635 MATPAX, Nexam Chemical AB

Reference number
Coordinator Nexam Chemical AB
Funding from Vinnova SEK 2 391 000
Project duration October 2015 - September 2017
Status Completed
Venture Eurostars

Purpose and goal

The project aims to develop polymer material containing reactive chemistry suitable for a unique injection molding processing concept that will allow production of thin shell or metal replacement parts with superior properties. What will you deliver? Manufacturer of plastic parts can be supplied with both material and molding equipment for modification of existing tools or implementation in new tools for manufacturing of the targeted applications (thin shell, metal replacement or both).

Expected effects and result

To bring new material and processing technology to the market that can enable production of advanced polymer parts for metal replacement and/or designs that is not possible to produce in polymer materials today. The project members believe that the combination of new material and processing technologies will open up for many new applications made in plastic materials that is not possible to make with existing production technology and materials.

Planned approach and implementation

The project was conducted by three parties, representing different areas in the value chain. EMS-Grivory (polymer developer/producer) developed new polyamide resins based on Nexam Chemical (reactive additive developer/producer) technology. New injection molding technology for processing of these tailor made compounds was developed by RocTool (process technology developer/producer). This technology made possible to activate the reactive polymer material during the final forming process (injection molding).
