EMS-Grivory is among the winners of the European Plastics Innovation Awards, organized jointly by Plastics Europe and the Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE).

The Swiss polyamide specialist received the European Plastics Innovation Award in the category "Hybrid Product" for its Grilamid products, used by sport article manufacturer Arc'teryx to make a ultra-lightweight touring ski boot: the Procline Lite.

The Arc'teryx Procline Lite is a two-in-one solution for mountaineers. A ski and mountaineering boot which can be used for both difficult climbing routes as well as challenging downhill descents.

For the shell, Amer Sports used a specially modified, cold-impact strength Grilamid, which offers advantages such as low density, good UV resistance, high surface quality and good flowability in injection molding processes. This made it possible to realize a very thin-walled component.

A further feature is the stiffness which, in contrast to other materials, remains nearly constant over a very wide temperature range.

The patented shell system for the uppers is made using long carbon fiber reinforced Grilamid, which has very high stiffness and strength but an also very low density. This has the advantage that the boot gives better control when used walking uphill in the "walking mode" while providing the necessary stability during the downhill descent in "skiing mode".
