PA

PolyAmide

SCROLL

PA is a semi-crystalline plastic, subdivided into two groups depending on whether it is made up of one or two base materials.


This also influences how much moisture PA absorbs, in turn having an effect on dimensional accuracy and mechanical properties. The physical properties are differentiated by the composition and structure of their molecule chains. There are extruded and cast metals; the latter can be produced in larger dimensions, has lower inner tension, and a higher degree of crystallisation (more solid). Polyamides feature a very good range of mechanical properties, particularly high impact resistance, and excellent sliding and wear behaviour. The properties vary here from the hard and tough PA 6.6 to the soft and flexible PA 12.

PA Properties
  • High mechanical strength, rigidity, hardness, and impact resistance
  • Good fatigue strength
  • High mechanical damping capacity
  • Good sliding and emergency running properties
  • Very high wear resistance
  • Good electrical insulation
  • High resistance to high energy radiation (Gamma rays and X-rays)
  • Good machinability
  • High moisture absorption

This material offers an optimum combination of mechanical strength, rigidity, impact resistance, and mechanical damping, in combination with very good wear resistance, good electrical insulation properties, and good chemical resistance. PA 6 extruded is therefore a universal material for construction and maintenance.

PA 4.6 is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic with very high heat deflection temperature. Its enhanced rigidity and creep strength make this material suitable for use in a wider range of temperatures. It also features considerably higher thermal aging resistance in higher temperatures (80-150°C) than all PA types, even POM and PETP.

A material that offers good rigidity, hardness, abrasion resistance, and heat deflection temperature. PA 6.6 has benefits compared to PA 6. Compared to the cast version, PA 6.6 has higher moisture absorption. In its other characteristics, PA 6.6 is similar to the cast PA 6 G, but 60% more expensive.

PA 12 is a semi-crystalline polyamide with very high toughness and good chemical resistance. Of all the polyamides, PA 12 sets itself apart with the lowest water absorption. It also possesses good impact strength. It is extruded.

Data Sheet (PDF)

Its properties make this material well-suited for parts with high continuous static loads at higher temperatures. Since glass fibres tend to cause a somewhat significant abrasion of the mating surface, PA 12 GF 30 is less suitable for sliding applications. This PA 12 reinforced with 30% glass fibres demonstrates increased strength, rigidity, creep strength, and dimension stability compared to non-reinforced PA 12.

Data Sheet (PDF)

A multitude of superior properties make PA 12 cast an outstanding engineering material, in mechanical and apparatus engineering, the automobile industry, drive engineering, and the food, printing, paper, and packaging industries, for example.
