The PK 5000

Additive Material Offers Strength in an Eco-Friendly Footprint

July 1, 2022
The PK 5000 from Jabil features a unique combination of chemical and mechanical properties.

The PK 5000 is an eco-friendly, powder-based additive material engineered to deliver improved strength, chemical resistance and resilience in comparison to general-purpose nylon materials, such as PA 12. This patent-pending material has been formulated to support highly demanding automotive, consumer electronics, defense, medical and industrial manufacturing applications. This new material features a unique combination of chemical and mechanical properties, such as high-impact strength, high-abrasion resistance and improved elongation over other nylon materials to withstand functional testing and use.

The PK 5000 has high-barrier properties and low-moisture absorption, which may be critical for ensuring the quality and resilience of certain parts and products exposed to fuel and water. The polyketone resin used to make PK 5000 is an eco-friendly, low-carbon material that is made from carbon monoxide. The ability to leverage carbon monoxide, which is a leading cause of atmospheric pollution, may reduce overall carbon footprint.
