Solvay offers two families of semi-aromatic polyamides that deliver significantly higher performance than typical nylons. They are generally compounded with additives such as glass, minerals and impact modifiers to achieve exacting results.
High-temperature nylon that’s stronger, stiffer and less sensitive to moisture than typical nylons. It retains its excellent mechanical properties – including fatigue and creep resistance – over a broad temperature range in humid and chemically aggressive environments.
Specialty high-performance nylon for structural applications where aesthetics are an important consideration. Compounds typically contain 50-60% glass fiber reinforcement, making them remarkably strong and rigid. The smooth, resin-rich surface creates a high-gloss, glass-free surface suitable for painting, metallization or producing a naturally reflective shell.
