Product Focus - EcoPaXX® PA410 by DSM

EcoPaXX®, by DSM is a bio-based, high-performance polyamide (PA410) that offers outstanding performance across the board. Distributed by Redox, EcoPaXX® is primarily made from renewable materials, offering a wide range of properties, and available in various grades.

EcoPaXX® belongs to the family of long-chain polyamides, which offer exceptional performance in the most demanding of environments. That includes excellent chemical resistance, low moisture absorption, combined with a very high melting point up to 250ºC (highest of all bio-plastics) and a high crystallization rate typical for engineering plastics like PA66 and PA46.

It’s certified 100% carbon neutral from cradle to gate as validated by an independent third party. That means the amount of carbon dioxide emitted during the production of EcoPaXX® is offset by the amount absorbed in plant growth, and in particular by the riccinus communis; the tropical castor bean plant that makes up some 70% of EcoPaXX®.

EcoPaXX® can be processed on standard injection-moulding and extrusion machines. Its intrinsic fast crystallization helps ensure short injection-moulding cycle times. EcoPaXX® is available in a growing portfolio of grades suitable for a wide range of industrial applications and sectors including:

  • Automotive: Its combination of strength and stiffness, along with chemical and high heat resistance makes it especially ideal for demanding Under-the-Hood components and safety applications.
  • Electrical and Electronics: It includes a range of dedicated grades featuring low moisture absorption, high dimensional stability and UL-flammability rating. That includes stiff and tough materials for frames in handheld devices like mobile phones; as well as halogen-free flame retardant materials for use in connectors, low voltage switchgears, and other power distribution applications.
  • Consumer goods, sport and leisure: From skiing gear to zips and fasteners, manufacturers are looking to produce lighter, smarter and greener designs that meet the needs of modern consumers. EcoPaXX® fits the bill nicely.

Royal DSM is a purpose-led global science-based company in Nutrition, Health and Sustainable Living. DSM is dedicated to the development of innovative solutions and collaborations that contribute to a circular economy, representing nature and the circle of life.

Product Focus – Creatine for human performance

Identified for its potential to enhance the human body especially during high-intensity exercise, Creatine is a favoured ingredient across manufacturers of health foods, beverages and supplement products. Distributed by Redox, Creatine is safe, effective and affordable - a gold standard ingredient for your product!

Creatine is a naturally occurring compound and a fundamental component of high energy phosphate metabolism, required for buffering, transport, and regulation of cellular energy, found abundantly in metabolically active tissue such as muscle, heart and brain. While it is synthesised endogenously, it is commonly absorbed from dietary sources, such as:

  • Body performance products – performance powders, supplements and snack foods
  • Drinks - energy drinks and other functional drinks
  • Health foods – functional foods, vegan and vegetarian food and snacks

Creatine is a value-adding ingredient primarily due to its health benefits; its capability to cause numerous changes within muscle cells, signalling your body to build new muscle proteins and increase muscle mass. It is an ingredient of choice for consumers who seek out benefits concerned with body enhancement, healthy lifestyles and sustainable food sources, such as body builders, trainers, vegans and vegetarians, and many more.

Creatine is available in both monohydrate (80 and 200 mesh) and anhydrous forms, ensuing we have the right ingredient for your food, drink or supplement. Manufactured under strict controls our Creatine comes with ISO9001 quality certification, along with Halal and Kosher guarantees.
