Polyamides which are popularly known as Nylon is an important thermoplastic in engineering due to their balanced properties. Nylon, which was discovered by Wallace H. Carothers contains -CO-NH- with repeated links of amide.

PA12 is a thermoplastic material with a semi-crystalline which has the same as polyamide 11. It is a special polymer that comes from renewable and petroleum. Thus, sourcing a quality PA12 from a reliable manufacturer is very essential.

In the following we will take you through the nitty-gritty of PA12. In the end, you will know it clearly as well as take the best decision.

Basic features of polyamides 12

Some key features of polyamides 12 are:

  • PA12 has a lower impact resistance with a density of 1.01 grams/ml. However, it has high resistance to ultraviolet light and abrasions.
  • The melting point of PA12 is 178 - 180ºC. It happens to be the lowest melting point when we compare it with other polyamides.
  • PA12 has good electrical properties and appreciable dimensional stability.
  • It has a low coefficient friction when dry run against polybutylene terephthalate (PBT), steel, and other material.

Advantages of PA12

There are various advantages of PA12. Some of them are:

  • Materials produced using PA12 have dimensions with high stability. It enables them to resist moderately in different environments.
  • When materials made with PA12 is exposed to weather condition that is below freezing point, the resistance to impact is still intact.
  • PA12 has a property that allows the reduction of vibrations and dampens the high noise level of a system.
  • The material has highly processable parts and does not support fatigue when working on high-frequency recurrent loading.  
  • It can accommodate the heavy loading of fillers and has a low water-absorbing ability.

Uses of PA12

We have numerous applications of this polymer. However, some of them are:

  • It is used as a sheet metal joints
  • PA12 has a protective property that acts as a protective cover for different materials.
  • It is used for ski boots
  • PA12 is also used as a cable insulator
  • Sealing rings
  • Damper sprockets

Methods of production of PA12 parts

We have 2 major methods to make PA12 parts. They are:

  • CNC Machining
  • Injection Molding

CNC Machining

Production of PA12 using a CNC machine makes the design of the material more efficient. It is essential to know how to use the CNC machine software effectively. Once the shape and size have been designed, production of the product is easy.

Injection Molding

The injection molding provides a preliminary design that makes the production of products. The machine requires an appropriate mold to get the desired product.
