Ultramid® Polyamides (Nylon)

Ultramid® polyamides (Nylon) are molding compounds based on PA 6, PA 66 and copolyamides such as PA 66/6. Due to their outstanding properties these materials have become indispensable in almost all fields of engineering for the most varied components and machine parts, as high-quality electrical insulating materials and for many special applications.

Ultramid polyamides (Nylon) are exceptional for their high mechanical strength, rigidity and thermal stability. Moreover, Ultramid polyamides afford good impact resistance even at low temperatures, advantageous sliding friction properties and problem-free processing.
