Durethan® is the trade name for our range of engineering thermoplastics based on polyamide 6 and polyamide 66. These polyamides are partially crystalline thermoplastics which offer an ideal combination of properties, especially for technical applications. They provide high mechanical strength and stiffness, good dielectric properties, high resistance to both heat and chemical attack, and good friction and wear properties.
PA66 based, used in a variety of markets and applications like automotive high temperature under the hood and cooling circuits as well as flame retardant EE applications.
Fillers - depending on the base polymer: non-reinforced, glass fiber, glass fiber/carbon fiber, mineral
Homopolymer PA6, used in a variety of markets and applications including automotive, electrical, electronics, furniture, power tools and packaging film for medical, food and industrial goods.
Fillers - depending on the base polymer: non-reinforced, (glass)fiber, glass fiber/beads, glass fiber/mineral, glass/carbon fiber, carbon fiber, glass beads, mineral
PA6I transparent, a partially aromatic polyamide that is used in applications requiring resistance to hydrocarbons, lipids and disinfectants.
