Ascend Performance Materials has expanded production capacity for HiDura long-chain polyamides in its Greenwood, S.C., plant. The multi-million dollar expansion will help the company meet growing demand for its new product line.
Introduced in November 2020, Ascend’s HiDura PA610 and 612 products are used in a variety of consumer goods, industrial, renewable energy, automotive and electric vehicle applications. These grades offer exceptional ductility, UV weatherability and hydrolysis resistance, and long term performance in some of the harshest conditions.
In applications such as in solar photovoltaic supports, battery seals and brush bristles, the durability of HiDura improves the reliability of the products. In solar PV installation where each of the parts faces extreme conditions, such as the 25 years a solar PV installation will be exposed to the elements or the constant contact with corrosive chemicals inside a battery cell, HiDura can improve the performance of the products.
Ascend, which is the largest fully integrated producer of polyamide 66 resin, used its extensive polymerisation knowledge to expand capacity at its Greenwood facility. It continues to expand its HiDura grades to meet the growing needs of its customers.
