Durethan® - The versatile solution for your engineering applications
Diversity of grades with convincing material properties
The versatile portfolio of Durethan® ranges from soft and tough grades to extremely rigid and stiff grades. Therefore, we can offer you an individual solution for a wide variety of requirements and applications.
Apart from the injection molding grades, there are also Durethan® grades for the extrusion of semi-finished products, films and blow molded parts.
In addition to non-reinforced grades, we also offer glass fiber reinforced, glass bead or mineral filled products.
Flame retardant, elastomer-modified hydrolysis-stabilized and food-approved grades are similarly available.
Further information about our Durethan® grades
There is much more information we can provide to you upon request like for example processing advice for injection molding, viscosity data, Safety Data Sheets, or a troubleshooting guide. Apart from that, we have developed a calculation tool for snap fits - the so-called FEMSnap. FEMSnap is a calculator based on the Finite Element Method.
Another tool for the support of your daily work is FEMPipe - a calculator for pressure-loaded pipelines, tanks, vessels and housings.

Who we are
The LANXESS Business Unit High Performance Materials (HPM) offers key industries around the world a wide range of engineering plastic compounds and is supported by global production facilities and a comprehensive R&D network. Worldwide, more than 1,800 employees are working for HPM at 14 locations. Thanks to efficient and competitive production plants, HPM today is a leading supplier of thermoplastic high-performance polymers. Our polyamide 6 and 66 grade families Durethan® and polybutylene terephthalate Pocan® offer various potentials for growth and innovation. At our production sites in Belgium, Germany, Brazil, China, India and in the USA, we produce caprolactam, polyamide 6, polyamide 66, glass fibers and polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) in world-scale plants.
With our Tepex® grade family, we produce high performance composite laminate systems made with thermoplastic polymers. The innovative combination of continuous reinforced fibers with thermoplastic polymers results in exceptionally high strength and rigidity, coupled with extremely low weight. Tepex® enables cost-effective part fabrication processes suitable for mass-production, especially in combination with injection molding.
