PA12G - cast polyamide 12

Compare material
Other material names PA12G: Cast Nylon Polyamide 12
Material group: 

PA12G natural is a semi crystalline polyamide 12 with very high toughness and good chemical resistance, with reduced sensitivity to stress cracking. The PA12G properties include the lowest water absorption characteristics of all polyamides, which means any parts made from PA12G should remain stable in humid environments. In addition to this, PA12G also has good impact resistance, good slide friction properties, and good wear resistance. Compared to other polyamides, PA12G has one of the lowest melting points available at 180°C.

Typical applications: 
  • aircraft and aerospace technology
  • electronics
  • food technology
  • mechanical engineering
  • automotive industry
  • high toughness
