Item No : Polyamide 46 PA46
Product Name : Polyamide 46 PA46

Pa46 (NYLON 46) is a high performance, high temperature polyamide providing unmatched performance and value across an amazingly broad range of automotive and electronic applications.


Characteristics of PA9T
  • The water absorbency of PA9T is the lowest among high heat resistant polyamides.
  • PA9T has superior heat resistance (blister resistance) and corresponds well to lead-free solder.
  • PA9T keeps its superior mechanical properties at higher temperatures.
  • Due to its low water absorption, PA9T has a superior dimensional stability.
  • Compared to other heat resistant polyamides, the electric properties of PA9T are stable for its low water absorbency.
  • PA9T has superior chemical resistance in the class of heat resistant polyamides.
  • PA9T also shows superior abrasion resistance, as do other polyamides as a typical property.
  • The regrind of PA9T can be taken at 30-50% percentage with new virgin.
Applications in PA9T

Connectors, Jacks, Switches, Power terminal, Various electric case, Cylinder head covers, Auto parts, Thermostat cases, Hydraulic pistons, Oil pump housing, Light-load tribological parts, OA equipments, Cooling system parts, Roller parts, Pulley parts.
