  • Polyamide-imide
    Polyamide-imides are engineering thermoplastics characterized by excellent dimensional stability, high strength at high temperature, and good impact resistance. Molded parts can maintain structural integrity in continuous use at temperatures to 500 F. Polyamide-imide, produced by Amoco Performance
  • Polyamide goes snowbiking
    Components that secure and steer Snowbikes from Brenter in Austria are made from an impactresistant Zytel ST801 polyamide. Edited by Jean M. Hoffman Engelbert Brenter invented the sitting ski in 1949, which became known as the ski-bob during the 1960s. In the mid-1990s, the sport experienced
  • Polyamide Resin Technical Data Sheet
    Polyamide resins are synthetic polymers containing an amide group. -CONH- , as a recurring part of the chain. This polymer was first commercially introduced by DuPont as a result of the significant research work of W. H. Carothers in the 1930s, who was conducting early extensive research efforts
  • VW Passenger Airbag
    Quadrant CMS has developed a new, polyamide passenger airbag housing for use in vehicles based on the Volkswagen Golf platform.
  • Medical Device Link .
    Polyamide-imide material performs well in nonlubricated applications. A new material designed for nonlubricated applications reduces wear on moving parts. Polyamide-imide also provides a margin for continued operation of lubricated systems if lubrication is lost. Torlon 4435, designed by Solvay
  • High Power in Particle Board Production
    Rotating mass of about 15 tons and a belt speed of 31 m/s. Due to the low temperatures of the region, which can go down to -40 °C (-40 °F), the already stiff polyamide belt type initially used was becoming even harder. This caused joint breaks after a certain period of time.
  • Hot stuff
    New energy-efficient turbosystems run at high temperatures but can still benefit from use of engineering plastics. Edited by Jean M. Hoffman Polyamide 46 has been widely used for charged air cooler end tanks and can cost 30% less than conventional end tanks made from aluminum. Turbocharger inlet
  • Medical Device Link .
    Critical Factors in Extruding Catheter Tubing from Polyamide Medical tubing extrusion requires rigorous attention to a number of material and process characteristics. Understanding the importance of these parameters is key to ensuring product quality. Sedigheh Farzaneh, Erik Andersen, and Abbas
  • Medical Device Link .
    Micromoulding Technique Pumps New Life into Cardiovascular Device A polyamide-imide material developed by (Alpharetta, GA, USA) has several desirable properties for device OEMs. Sold under the Torlon name, the polymer combines high strength at temperatures up to 260 C with creep and wear
