The eco-friendly choice for carbon-filled polyamide compounds
ECONAMID® AIR offers reduced surface and volume resistivity for various levels of electrical conductivity. OEMs and Tier suppliers can use these properties in developing connectors, fuel-filtering components, light detection and ranging applications, camera housings and electronic components. With its combination of high-quality recycled carbon fibre and sustainable polyamide, ECONAMID® AIR significantly lowers CO2 emissions with no loss of mechanical properties.
When it comes to making nylon film more and more sustainable, DOMO walks the talk. Its status as a sustainability leader is founded on its upstream integration, proximity to customers and enlightened energy mix based on renewable sources. And products like Nyleen™: the BOPA and CAST PA film with low CO2 emission, courtesy of the unique end-to-end integration (from benzene to film extrusion) of its Leuna production site.
In particular, its carbon and water footprints, as measured by sustainability experts Quantis (https://quantis-intl.com), are the lowest in the world, compared to standard nylon film production data published by Ecoinvent 3.3.
This film enables flexible-packaging converters and other users to offer their customers solutions with a lower environmental impact.
This short presentation shows how collaboration of the entire value chain of flexible packaging, from raw material suppliers to packaging producers, brand owners and retailers, adding waste management companies and systems, make possible to recycle tomorrow what was thought of being non-recyclable yesterday, including packaging and system redesign, optimization and enhancement in sorting and decontamination of waste of flexible packaging, as well as new enabling technologies to recycle more or better. www.ceflex.eu

The ECONAMID® engineering plastics range offers a complete assortment of sustainable PA6 and PA66 compounds, based on high quality pre-consumer fiber feedstock, secured by reliable, long-term supply agreements. As a result we can confidently state that our ECONAMID® range offers ecology and durability while offering the highest industry quality standard.
Many of our ECONAMID® products are customized and have been developed in close collaboration with our business partners, for applications in Automotive, E&E, Building & Constructing, Sports & Leisure. DOMO Engineering Plastics was the first European producer to obtain the UL Environment validation.
ECONAMID® matches concern for our future with untarnished quality and competitive pricing. By using unique fibre feedstock, monitoring our energy consumption and using renewable energy sources we have managed to produce a top-quality green range of products.
Our whole ECONAMID® product range stems from an acute and exigent need in our reference markets. More specifically: the need for ecological yet affordable products and raw materials without making any sacrifice whatsoever to quality.
Nyleen™ is the nylon film with a lower carbon footprint. Thanks to our Nylon 6 chain unique vertical integration and to its finely tuned and monitored production process, this major innovation is a nylon film of the highest quality with CO2 emissions of up to 28% less than standard nylon film production.
Thermec™ is a new entry in the DOMO EP product portfolio. Developed to meet demanding applications requiring higher heat resistance and performance at elevated temperatures, the Thermec™ product range is formulated with different high temperature base polymers depending on the specific application requirements. The growing list of available grades delivers a wide range of properties depending on the type and concentration of the reinforcing agents (glass fibres, minerals, etc.)
The heart of our production is Caprolactam, the most indispensable intermediate in the production of Nylon 6. Caprolactam is the core of our production. To insure the most pure and high-quality production possible, our Caprolactam quality is monitored and tested through a Caprolactam-specific gas chromatic (GC) analytical system.
We offer Caprolactam both in liquid form and in flakes (bulk density: 520 ± 10 kg/m³).
Caprolactam is transported in a liquid state at temperatures of 75-90 °C under a N2 atmosphere (O2-content less than 50 ppm) in thermally insulated heatable rail tank cars, containers and road tank cars made of stainless steel. Solid Caprolactam in the form of flakes is packed in water impermeable polyethylene bags of 25 kg. The polyethylene bags are brought to shipping stretch-wrapped on pallets with a net weight of 1.00 / 1.25 / 1.50 mt. Normally 40 feet containers (maximum load 24 mt) are used for transportation overseas.
