Domo Chemicals has come up with an innovative circular solution for the power tools and home appliances segment. This breakthrough consists of a new combination of PA6 and TPE that offers unlimited color choice and mechanical properties identical to virgin PA6 materials.

The result of a collaborative project between Domo Chemicals and Mitsubishi Chemical Group (MCG), Performance Polymers Division, this new combined material offers for the first time, excellent adhesion and haptics, as well as increased sustainability through the use of recycled material feedstocks.

“This is the first time such a sustainable combination is available with a limitless range of colors for the polyamide and the TPE part, allowing customers to match their desired color for optimal brand recognition,” says Florence Schutz, Manager Application Center C&E Market, Domo.

“We were looking for a recycled polyamide grade able to meet the requirements of the most common power tool colors,” says Fabien RESWEBER, Sales and Marketing manager, Mitsubishi Chemical Group / Performance Polymers EMEA. “Customized color is an important part of product design features because it enhances brand recognition with the end consumer. With Domo we have found the right partner. With their broad portfolio of sustainable polyamides, we have been able to find the right solution that will synergize the value of our new circular TPE compound for 2K applications with polyamides.”
