Polyamide Plastics (PA)
Industrilas' products are also manufactured through injection moulded Polyamide 6.
The auto industry and makers of household appliances and office equipment are main users of PA due to its characteristics:
- wear-and -tear endurance
- resistance to inorganic compounds, oils, greases, gasoline and organic solvents
- can be sterilized with steam
- and has a low friction coefficient.
The standard Industrilas Polyamide 6 (PA6) is modified for toughness with various amounts of glass fibre reinforcements, usually 30% (GF30), to additionally optimize the characteristics of the product.
Industrilas has chosen PA6 particularly for its high impact toughness and good mechanical characteristics. The temperature range for use of items made of PA6 is -30˚ to +70˚ centigrade.
Industrilas also injection moulds items from other plastics, such as PC, POM, ABS, PP, PE and PS. Housings, inserts, handles, keys and hinges are all examples of products manufactured out of PA, even though all these items are available in other materials as well.
