Evonik’s TROGAMID® myCX

MATERIALS:  Essen, Germany-based Evonik Industries AG has expanded its TROGAMID® CX range to include the new TROGAMID® myCX, which stands for a new premium brand of microcrystalline high-performance polyamide and was improved specifically for the manufacture of sports glass and sunglass lenses. Evonik also offers plastic films made of TROGAMID® myCX, which are clear as glass and suitable for laminating and decorating optical parts. TROGAMID® myCX is permanently transparent, allowing a light transmission of 92 percent. Because of the low density and the high break- and scratch-resistance of the high-performance polyamide, sunglass lenses made of this material are not only exceptionally light, but very safe. TROGAMID® myCX is available as a granulate and as a transparent, colorless film that is clear as glass and can be used for laminating and decorating optical parts. The films come in standard thicknesses of 125 and 400 micrometers. Other thicknesses can be provided upon request.
