RILSAMID™ PA12

Producer: Arkema
Polymer type PA 12

Rilsamid™ PA 12 resins are specified in the most demanding applications due to their unique combination of thermal, physical, chemical and mechanical properties.

Its good value for money makes it a material of choice for applications where safety, durability or reliability are critical. It is used around the world in many demanding industries.

General info

PA12 Rilsamid™ properties

The properties of semi crystalline polyamides are determined by the concentration of amide groups in the macromolecule. This is lower in Rilsamid™ PA 12 than in all other commercially available polyamides, which accounts for its special properties:

  • Minimal water absorption: moulded parts show almost no dimensional changes with variation in atmospheric humidity
  • Extraordinarily high impact resistance and Charpy notched impact strength, even well below freezing point
  • Good to excellent resistance to greases, oils, fuels, hydraulic fluids, and many solvents as well as to salt solutions and other chemicals
  • Excellent resistance to stress cracking, even for metal parts encapsulated by injection moulding or embedded into the plastic
  • Excellent abrasion resistance
  • Low dry sliding friction coefficient as compared with steel, polybutylene terephthalate, polyacetal, and other materials
  • Noise and vibration damping properties
  • Excellent resistance to fatigue caused by frequent load change
  • Easy processability
