Dr. Wohlbier:

DSM RIM Nylon is raw material supplier for Nyrim ®. We are part of DSM in The Netherlands.

I would like to inform you about the unique properties of Nyrim ®. Details on some potential applications in bulk materials handling can be sent separately.

Nyrim ® is a rubber toughened, recyclable, Nylon thermoplastic for industrial Reaction Injection Molding (RIM), Injection Molding and Rotomolding applications. Nyrim ® usually contains 10-40% built-in elastomer, depending on the specific performance needs.

The stiffness/toughness combination of Nylon-6 and elastomer gives excellent:

• Impact resistance

• Wear resistance

• Repetitive load (fatigue) endurance

RIM processing is the preferred method to manufacture large, complex (3-D) or thick parts and allows for a large design flexibility. Nyrim ® can be used to make more complex 3-D parts than is possible with conventional impact and wear resistant materials. The unique possibilities of Nyrim ® are illustrated at www.rimnylon.com.

Some important questions are:

• Which players would be interested in this type of materials

• Which ones are known to be innovative

• How can we reach them

• How can The Powder/Bulk Portal be supportive to that.

We thank you for your cooperation.
