Sustamid® Nylon PA12 Extruded

SUSTAMID® PA12 is partially crystalline and is based on Laurylactum Type 12 Nylon thermoplastic monomer that has some very distinctive properties which can be characterised as follows:

  • Lowest water absorption of all commercial polyamides
  • Dimensionally stable
  • Exceptional impact and notched impact strength
  • Excellent low temperature capability down to -50° C
  • Very good resistance to greases, oils, fuels, solvents and hydraulic fluids
  • Exceptional resistance to stress cracking
  • Exceptional impact strength
  • Excellent noise and vibration damping properties
  • Excellent fatigue resistance under high frequency load changes
  • Very good machineability
  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Light weight

Fields of application: noise and vibration damping friction bearings, automotive components, water lubricated bearings and parts.
