Products

Overview

With over 200 grades serving different markets, SRF offers engineering plastics manufactured to meet specific requirements, under the following categories:

  • Polyamides (N6, N66)
  • Poly Butylenethalate (PBT)
  • Poly Carbonates (PC)
  • Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET)

Initially focused on manufacturing and compounding of Polyamide 6 resin, today the business offers several engineered compounds under following brands

Product Range and Applications

TUFNYL® : Polyamide 6 & Polyamide 66 engineering resins

TUFNYL® is our brand name of high performance Polyamide 6 & Polyamide 66 materials. It is one of the most valuable engineering plastics, particularly for applications requiring high mechanical properties along with chemical and heat resistance and excellent finish. Polyamide is often the answer for designers seeking weight savings, functional integration, design freedom and cost reduction.
