PA12 is also known as polylaurolactam, a semi-crystalline thermoplastic material. PA12 is a good insulating material and will not absorb water. PA12 has a very low melting point and density, has a small specific gravity and is a soft nylon plastic with low shrinkage. Nylon 12 has a good noise damping effect, and can be used for silent gears. The injection temperature of nylon 12 is 240-300 degrees.
The new Nylon 6 is an even stronger, more durable version than nylon 12. With a higher tensile strength and elongation at break, this material nylon6/ nylon12 is suited for even more rigorous applications such as functional performance testing and environmentally challenging manufacturing aids.
Nylon 11 is derived from castor oils and nylon 12 comes from butadiene. Nylon 12 has a slightly lower melting point and density and nylon 12 performs better at high temperatures and has superior UV resistance. Their advantages include low moisture absorption.
Nylon 12 has a low moisture absorption rate and can be used for electrical parts and instruments with precise dimensions. It has good gas barrier properties, is non-toxic, and can be used for food and medicine packaging. It has excellent resistance to termites and can be used for wire and cable sheathing. In a word, nylon 12 is widely used in industries such as electronics, communication, machinery, food, etc. With its excellent characteristics, the application prospect of PA12 is very broad.
