The new StarBond XL PA series from Star Thermoplastics has been developed to deliver excellent bond strength to a variety of polyamides such as PA6, PA6,6, and glass filled analogues of these polymers. The new series has an initial offering of hardness 60 Shore A and 75 Shore A. The compounds are available in natural and black colours. These grades are said to offer very good tensile properties, elongation and tear properties compared to several leading competitors, while offering outstanding bond strength and flow characteristics. Potential applications include markets such as consumer, sporting goods, and transportation.
