Polyamides (PA) are semi-crystalline polymers. A distinction is made between two types. Polyamides made of one basic material (e.g. PA 6) and polyamides, which are made of 2 basic materials (e.g. PA 66).
- Medium - high mechanical strength, hardness, rigidity, tenacity
- High mechanical damping characteristics
- Good fatigue strength
- Very good wear resistance
- Good sliding properties
Temp Range: -70°C to 99°C
Commonly used in manufacturing clothes & carpets. They are also used in cars, and for making films for food packaging. They are used in films for their good balance between mechanical strength and barrier properties against oxygen, smells and oils.
