Grilamid PA 12 is a high-performance thermoplastic material, based on laurolactam and tried and proven in numerous high-quality applications for more than 40 years. These include precision injection-moulding, in electronic applications for example, as well as for sanitary fittings, fuel and air brake lines and sheathing for fiber optical wave guides.
Grilamid Polyamide 12 (PA12) is formed by the polymerisation of laurolactam, a ring-shaped, long-chain monomer with 12 carbon atoms. Laurolactam, often called lactam 12, is obtained in a complex, multiple-step process from the basic raw material butadiene. EMS is backward integrated for lactam 12 and produces it in a joint-venture where EMS holds a two-third majority.
Depending on formulation and viscosity, Grilamid PA12 can be processed using a range of different methods such as injection-moulding, pipe extrusion, film extrusion or blow-moulding.Through use of additives, fillers, pigments, plasticisers, modifiers or processing aids, Grilamid products are adjusted precisely to suit customer requirements and specific applications.
Grilamid PA12 has a series of exceptional properties such as:
very low water absorption and excellent dimensional stability
very good resistance to chemicals and weathering
excellent hydrolysis resistance
lowest density among all polyamides
high impact strength down to -40°C
wide processing window, problem-free processing
The Grilamid series was created especially for applications in direct contact with foodstuffs or drinking water.The tailor-made,reinforced and non-reinforced products correspond to international requirements and legislation in this field of application.Important applications for Grilamid PA12 are feed lines and connectors for media and compressed air systems in the fields of automotive, industrial goods, sports and leisure, sanitary components (replacement of brass), pneumatic pipes, cables and cable protection, housings for high-quality electronic devices, components for household appliances.
