Grivory G is a material family that is based on semi-crystalline polyamides with semi-aromatic content. It is a high-performance polymer that has been the leader in the field of metal replacement for some time now. Grivory G is delivered in granular form, and can be processed using conventional machine equipment for injection-molding and extrusion.
Grivory G is used to produce technical components on which very high requirements are placed, which are fulfilled through the characteristic properties of Grivory G:
- High stiffness and strength
- Good resistance to chemicals and oil
- Low moisture absorption
- Good dimensional stability and very little warpage
- Good processability that results in cost-effective production
- Aesthetic, visually appealing surfaces
Grivory G is available in a great number of variants; various modifications can be undertaken to achieve specific material properties. These include different types of filler in varying amounts, and additives for increased impact resistance or processability.
The available variants of Grivory G are:
Grivory GV Reinforced with 20–60% glass fibers
Grivory GVX Reinforced with special glass fibers for highest possible stiffness and low warpage
Grivory GM Reinforced with mineral filler for low warpage
Grivory GVN Reinforced with glass fibers, impact-resistance modification
Grivory GC Reinforced with carbon fiber, very high stiffness
Grivory GVS Reinforced with glass fibers, very good flowability
Grivory GV FWA Reinforced with glass fibers, approved for contact with foodstuffs and drinking water
Grivory G is used in applications and industries in which excellent mechanical properties are a requirement. Examples include the automotive and furniture industries, the mechanical industry, and sports and leisure.
