PlasticsPolyamide (PA)


Polyamides (PA) are polymers whose monomers have the amide group as a characteristic feature.


Nylon (PA 6.6) was patented on February 28, 1935 by Dr. Wallace Hume Carothers and was the first synthetic fiber made entirely from inorganic materials (carbon, water, air).

Structure and properties:

The amide group can be regarded as a condensation product of a carboxylic acid and an amine.

  • Easily machined
  • High strength
  • High rigidity
  • Good impact resistance
  • Good chemical resistance
  • Large water absorption

Areas of application:

Housings, dowels, plain bearings, insulation parts, cable ties, adhesive bases, nodes for medical tents, kitchens, machine parts, intake systems, fuel lines, engine covers
