Description

It is an unmodified, easy-flowing, tough-improved PA 1012 resin for injection molding or modification by a compounding process. Due to its semi-crystalline morphology it provides an excellent chemical resistance, e.g., against greases, oils, fuels and hydraulic fluids. It is also medium viscosity, easy-flowing.
