German compounder pal plast (Mühlheim; said it has developed a glass fibre-reinforced PA 6 with a recyclate content of up to 80%. The company presented the new grade at the KPA 2024 trade fair in Ulm, Germany, which ran from 28-29 February.

According to pal plast, the proprietary additive makes the material particularly suitable for the production of visible parts. The material is advertised to form particularly even surfaces, with the 30% of glass fibres contained in the compound being barely visible in the finished part.

Due to the use of up to 80% of recyclate, the grade also has a relatively low carbon footprint, which the company noted could be reduced by additives capable of decreasing cycle times in processing by up to 20%.

In recent months, pal plast has also expanded its portfolio of recyclates and compounds containing reclaimed material to include PBT grades with variable recyclate content. The company cites automotive and E&E applications as potential areas of use for these grades.
