Ultramid Deep Gloss combines the chemical resistance of semi-crystalline polyamides with the high gloss and the depth of view of amorphous plastics.
Ultramid Deep Gloss combines the chemical resistance of semi-crystalline polyamides with the high gloss and the depth of view of amorphous plastics.

BASF has developed a specialty polyamide (PA) that combines the chemical resistance of semi-crystalline polyamides with the high gloss and the depth of view of amorphous plastics.

The new product family, Ultramid Deep Gloss, is therefore particularly suitable for components in automobile interiors which are high-gloss and at the same time resistant without the need for coating.

Amorphous plastics have a high gloss level and are therefore used in many everyday products. When there are high demands on the permanent preservation of the surface properties, they generally have to be coated as the original level of chemical, scratching and abrasion resistance is not sufficient.

Semi-crystalline polyamides, however, have excellent chemical resistance but not the necessary gloss and resistance to scratching required for applications demanding maximum surface quality.

As introduced, Ultramid Deep Gloss is a balance between the two types of materials: apart from the high gloss and the depth of view, the continuous-use properties required for high quality surfaces, such as resistance to scratching as well as sufficiently high UV resistance, are achieved.

Compared to other, uncoated high-gloss materials, Ultramid Deep Gloss shows superior abrasion resistance. It can be injection molded without variothermal mold technology, and there is no need for the components to be coated.

In addition, BASF said the material provides designers with new opportunities to implement unusual textures such as ripples, waves, hammer finish, lines and diamonds. In addition, surfaces can be structured by haptic design elements. In combination with suitable sensor technology, this allows for integrated, functionalized designs.

There is great demand for surfaces with a piano-black look in car interiors. It is to be expected that the percentage of high quality, partially functionalized surfaces will continue to increase, said BASF.

Developed to meet the requirements for automotive interiors, it is also possible to manufacture components with similar demands in the consumer goods sector, added the company.
