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.
Design collaboration now includes the entire value chain. From suppliers to customers, purchasing to outside experts, the collaborative design team includes internal and external groups. The design process now stretches across the globe in multiple software formats.
A new high-pressure injection-molding technology produces near-net shape parts with 2-inch-thick walls from high-performance materials like PEEK, PAI, and carbon-filled polymers. Parts show no voids, sinks, or porosity, have more consistent mechanical properties, and are stronger.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
