Durethan® is a trade name of LANXESS for its range of engineering thermoplastics based on Polyamide 6 (PA6) and Polyamide 66 (PA66). Polyamides are partially crystalline plastics which offer an ideal combination of properties especially for technical applications.

It combines with a high mechanical strength and stiffness with good electrical insulation properties, a high resistance to heat and chemicals, low friction, good wear resistance and an outstanding ease of processing.

Depending on the particular material and grade concerned, polyamides absorb moisture from an environment on a reversible basis.
