PA12 (polyamide 12) is a microcrystalline transparent polyamide with the transparency up to 90%, easy to color and process. This material has the advantages of low density-1.02g/cm³, high toughness, high rigidity and excellent chemical resistance. Compared with copolyester (PCTG), PA12 has higher temperature resistance (HDT 125℃) and lower density which can increase the yield of production and reduce production costs. The material PA12 approved by REACH, ROHS and other environmental protection certifications. Because of BPA-free, PA12 can be used in the production and processing of food containers. As a special polyamide product, it can be used in optical glasses frames, lenses, earphone accessories, smart wearable shells, electronic connectors, small household appliances, automotive fuel storage cups and other fields.

What is PA12 Material?
PA 12 (also known as Nylon 12) is a good general-use plastic with broad additive applications and is known for its toughness, tensile strength, impact strength and ability to flex without fracture.
What are the advantages of PA12?
Polyamide 12 has many advantages such as low water absorbing nylon,good chemical resistance and ability to accept high loading of fillers.
What's the difference between PA12 and ABS?
Polyamide 12 is more durable and chemical-resistant than ABS and resins. ABS melts at 105 °C, whereas PA 12 melts at 187 °C. Since the polyamide is also stress and vibration-resistant, it is often used in both the aerospace and automotive industries.
Is Nylon PA12 waterproof?
In terms of water absorption, Nylon PA 12 absorbs very little moisture, is water-resistant but not waterproof.
