Nylons (Polyamides)
Back to Types

A polyamide (known as PA or nylon) is a macromolecule with repeating units linked by amide bonds. Polyamides occur both naturally and artificially. Examples of naturally occurring polyamides are proteins, such as wool and silk. Artificially made polyamides, such as nylon, aramids and sodium poly (asparate) can be made through step-growth polymerization or solid-phase synthesis. Known for its strength, temperature resistance and chemical compatibility, nylon is an ideal material for multiple applications.

Ideal characteristics:

  • Strength
  • Heat resistance
  • Gamma radiation resistance
  • Lightweight (can be metal replacement)
  • Impact performance
  • Durability
