Polyamide-based Compounds

They are thermoplastic polymers with a partially cristalline structure presenting an excellent balance of properties combined with good processing properties. The chain chemical structure ensures a high impact resistance and excellent mechanical properties of the material. These qualities make polyamides suitable for use in many industrial sectors.

Polyamide 6 Compound

Aliphatic polyamide 6 is obtained through the polymerisation of caprolactam. The chain chemical structure ensures a high impact resistance and excellent mechanical properties of the material.

This product family includes a wide range of materials, such as fiberglass reinforced, elastomer modified, heat-stabilised, mineral filled and flame-retarded.

 

This compound is available in many viscosity grades and in a wide range of colours.

 

Polyamide 6 Compound main features are:

  • Excellent mechanical properties (modulus and load)
  • Excellent resistance to organic solvents
  • High wear and fatigue resistance even at high temperatures
  • Easy processability and moulding
  • High rigidity
  • High impact resistance
  • Excellent dimensional stability
  • High fatigue resistance
  • High thermal properties

 

Applications:

AUTOMOTIVE

Under-the-hood parts and componenets, outer panels, bearing components

HOUSEHOLD APPLIANCES

Casings for small household appliances

ELECTRICAL & ELECTRONIC

ECU components, bulb-holders, structural and covering parts, electrical joints and plugs, fuse-holder terminal boards

SPORT & LEISURE

Parts of ski boots, rollers etc.

Polyamide 66 Compound

Aliphatic polyamide 66  obtained through the polymerisation of adipic acid and hexamethylenediamine.

The hygroscopic sensitivity of polyamide 66, although it is 1%  lower than polyamide 6 sensitivity, can significantly affect its properties.

This product family includes a wide range of materials, such as fiberglass reinforced, elastomer modified, heat-stabilised, mineral filled and flame-retarded.

 

Polyamide 6.6 Compound main features are:

  • Excellent mechanical properties (modulus and load)
  • Excellent resistance to organic solvents
  • High wear and fatigue resistance even at high temperatures
  • Easy processability and moulding
  • High rigidity
  • High impact resistance
  • Excellent dimensional stability
  • High fatigue resistance
  • High thermal properties

 

Applications:
