Fostalon(TM) 5000 Series of flexible nylon compounds fill a void in the flexural modulus data between 80,000 and 120,000 psi, and insure the compounds are dimensionally stable, with minimal shrinkage after extrusion. The series is fully compatible with radiopaque fillers such as barium, bismuth, and tungsten, targeting it for use in medical product applications such as catheters, hubs, and shafts. The compounds are also reinforceable with glass beads and/or fibers when used for hubs and other molded devices.
Most machine design engineers will survey existing component manufacturers for standard linear guide products, limiting what they can do with their designs. Using extruded aluminum profile guides can customize machine designs while shrinking the bill of materials.
Practically all electronic devices today contain metals that may
be coming from conflict-ravaged African countries. And political pressures will increasingly influence how these minerals are sourced and used in products.
