Polyamide (PA 6)

Polyamide with 30% glass fibres (PA 6 GF 30)

Polyamide with 30% glass beads (PA 6 GB 30)

Technical details

Polyamide 6 (PA 6) materials are semi-crystalline thermoplastics. Through water absorption (up to 3%), they become tough and have the following properties: 

- High impact strength
- High abrasion resistance
- Good anti-friction properties

The strength and application temperature for highly stressed components can be increased enormously by adding 10 to 60% glass fibres (GF).

The addition of glass beads (GB) increases component rigidity and prevents deformation during cooling. Changes in dimensions as a result of water absorption must be taken into account when polyamide is used.

Polyamide (PA 6.6)

Polyamide with 50% glass fibres (PA 6.6 GF 50)

Technical details

Like polyamide 6, polyamide 6.6 (PA 6.6) is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic. However, its mechanical properties are somewhat better than those of PA6.

Due to the lower water absorption, this material exhibits lower form changes than PA 6 during "conditioning" (water absorption due to humidity).

Polyamide (PA 12)

Technical details

Polyamide 12 (PA 12) has the lowest water absorption in the polyamide family.

It is therefore ideal for applications which require the good mechanical properties of PA and good dimensional stability at the same time.

Polyoxymethylene (POM)

Technical details

POM is part of the polyacetals family and is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic. POM is extremely dimensionally stable in damp environments and is generally used without reinforcement due to its excellent mechanical properties.
The high level of thermal expansion must be taken into account during use.

Polypropylene (PP)

Polypropylene with 30% glass fibres (PP GF 30)

Technical details

Polypropylene (PP) is part of the polyolefins family. PP is extremely resistant to chemicals. Furthermore, due to its molecular composition, it does not irritate the skin and is physiologically harmless.

With a density of approximately 0.9 g/cm³, polypropylene is the lightest plastic in the standard range.
As a result of these properties and its low water absorption, PP is ideal for lightweight, dimensionally stable food packaging and fittings.

Polyvinyl chloride (PVC)

Technical details

Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is an amorphous thermoplastic. It is one of the oldest and most common thermoplastics.
PVC is used to a great extent in the construction industry for window profiles, pipes and floor coverings.

Polyethylene (PE-HD)

Polyethylene (PE-LD)

Technical details

Polyethylene (PE) is part of the polyolefins family. PE has generally good chemical resistance, is tough and has high elongation at break.
Like all polyolefins, PE absorbs virtually no water and is physiologically harmless as it is made purely of hydrocarbons. PE has a very wide area of application, ranging from packaging film for foodstuffs (PE-LD and LLD) right through to pipes and large liquid containers (PE-HD).

Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene terpolymer (ABS)

Technical details

ABS is an amorphous thermoplastic made up of three raw materials: acrylonitrile, butadiene and styrene.


- Good impact strength
- Hard, scratch-resistant surface
- Simple processing – ABS can have a metallic coating.

Over 50% of the material produced is used in the automotive industry and for housing for electrical appliances.
