Description

Polyether block amide Pebax® 5513 SP 01 resin is a thermoplastic elastomer made of flexible polyether and rigid polyamide. Added to PA6,

Pebax® 5513 SP 01 resin enhances the properties of PA6, especially at low temperatures and low humidity content, at the same time maintaining the transparency of the nylon film and improving its soft touch. This SP grade has been developed to be heat and UV resistant.
