Three Ways Ketoprix™ Polyketone Compounds Can Solve Your Moisture Related Application Challenges

Published Tuesday, July 11, 2017

Whether it is related to atmospheric humidity levels or application specific direct exposure to water in use many resins are significantly affected by exposure to moisture and aqueous solutions. This can be manifested as dynamic physical property and dimension changes or in the case of resins subject to chain scission degradation mechanics a permanent loss of properties due to hydrolysis. However, the molecular structure of Ketoprix polyketone resins confers little affinity for moisture and excellent hydrolysis resistance. These traits solve three common types of moisture related issues for thermoplastic compounds while reducing processing costs.

Three Important Ways Ketoprix™ Polyketone Can Help Engineers Address Thermal Design Considerations

Published Monday, January 23, 2017

Virtually all injection molded components are exposed to temperatures which are significantly higher or lower than typical room temperatures. Even parts destined for an office or interior residential environment may see significant temperature excursions during shipping or warehouse storage. 

Four Harsh Environments Where Ketoprix Polyketone Excels

Published Wednesday, September 21, 2016

Many thermoplastic parts are exposed to environmental conditions which can lead to premature field failures. One of the most difficult of these considerations to address in the material selection process is exposure to aggressive chemicals. Ketoprix polyketone offers designers and engineers a solution to this challenge as it exhibits very broad chemical resistance rivaling that of exotic resins such as PVDF without their high costs. This article provides an overview of the chemical resistance of Ketoprix polyketone in addition to some guidelines to help engineers and designers navigate this part of the material selection process successfully.
