Polyamid PA

Our semi-crystalline polyamide products (PA 6, PA 6 cast, PA 6.6) have achieved a key role among the technical polymers. Thanks to its combination of high strength and high impact resistance, even at low temperatures, polyamide has become a very versatile construction material.

 

All polyamide semi-finished products offer the following properties:

  • good impact resistance
  • high dynamic load capacity
  • high strength and stiffness
  • improved toughness by water absorption
  • virtually no stress cracking
  • good chemical resistance
  • good gas barrier properties
  • high abrasion and wear resistance
  • good sliding and emergency running properties
  • good sound and vibration damping properties
  • good recyclability



Polyamide 6 extruded (PA 6 E)

In comparision to the other polyamides polyamide 6 extruded shows:

  • slightly higher impact strength
  • higher water absorption
