AMERICHEM INSTRUC™ STRUCTURALLY REINFORCED COMPOUNDS

As an innovative producer of custom engineered compounds, Americhem supports a wide variety of markets with its InStruc™ line of reinforced plastics. InStruc™ can be used in any application that requires increased strength, stiffness, heat resistance, creep resistance, fatigue endurance, impact protection and dimensional stability.

DEVELOPED TO MEET EXACT PERFORMANCE AND PROPERTY REQUIREMENTS

Americhem’s InStruc™ structurally reinforced compounds were developed to help our customers achieve the exact performance and properties they require. Each formulation is created according to end-product applications and specifications. We combine varying amounts of glass (fiber, milled glass or glass flakes), carbon (fiber and milled), and minerals such as mica and Wollastonite to ensure an optimal thermoplastic structure. Along with these fillers, we can introduce several product additives, including colors, lubricants, flame retardants and UV inhibitors, to surpass expectations. When searching for an InStruc™ manufacturer, know that Americhem offers an infinite product portfolio and an experienced development team that will assist you in making well-informed decisions based on decades of compounding expertise.

COLOR SCIENCE THAT TAKES INSTRUC™ TO AWESTRUCK

Whether you are looking to boost your brand identity or differentiate your products, Americhem has a dedicated color match department that can match any color provided to us. We also offer ColorFast™ pre-colored engineered resins in over 60 colors with transparent, translucent and opaque options. For medical products, Americhem’s ColorRx® medical-grade compounds provide pre-colored solutions specially created with biocompatible resin technology to meet rigorous market regulations.

REALIZE COST AND ENERGY EFFICIENCIES WITH INSTRUC™

Manufacturers are under increased pressure to produce products more economically while using less energy. InStruc™ engineered compounds can replace metal in many existing applications, offering significant cost advantages during manufacturing from a material and processing standpoint. Structurally reinforced compounds like InStruc™ make it possible for manufacturers to produce complex, dynamically reinforced structural composite parts in one continuous mold. This allows for greater economies of high-volume production. Additionally, the weight reduction attained with InStruc™ translates into lighter, more efficient vehicles and aircraft that save owners expensive fuel costs. And because InStruc™ elevates traditional polymers’ mechanical and physical properties, customers can often avoid the need for more expensive polymers like PEEK or PSU. A glass or carbon fiber-filled polymer will perform just as well in specific applications.

TAKING AVIATION APPLICATIONS TO NEW HEIGHTS

For over a quarter of a century, aerospace manufacturers have relied on Americhem to deliver an extensive product offering developed around aerospace industry-approved thermoplastics. Our customized InStruc™ resins harmonize aircraft interiors with soft-touch materials and brand-boosting colors while addressing structural performance demands. Americhem has specialized expertise in developing composite aircraft solutions that are not only aesthetically pleasing but are chemically resistant to cleaning solvents while meeting stringent flame, smoke and toxicity (FST) values. Our highly engineered compounds are fully compliant with FAA, ISO, REACH and RoHS safety requirements. InStruc™ structurally reinforced compounds are commonly used in seating, lighting, galley, lavatory, rub rail, bracket, O2 system and other applications.
