Material polyamide (PA)

Polyamide (PA) is one of the most important engineering thermoplastics. The proven strength of polyamide hose is its robustness.

In focus: PA as a material

Basic information on the material polyamide (PA)

Polyamides (PA for short) are processed into fibers in very large quantities. Well-known synthetic representatives of polyamides are commercially available under the names Nylon (PA66), Perlon (PA6), Cordura and Kevlar. They are also among the most important engineering thermoplastics.

They are tough materials with high strength and stiffness, excellent impact strength, and good abrasion and wear resistance. In its basic form, PA is a milky white thermoplastic that can be dyed to any color.

Polyamides can be divided into the following basic types on the basis of the number of polar amide groups contained in their polymer chains: polyamide 6, polyamide 66, polyamide 11 and polyamide 12. We mainly process the polyamide types PA 6, PA 11 and PA 12 in a wide variety of designs.

Polyamides are among the most important and useful construction thermoplastics due to their outstanding wear resistance, good coefficient of friction and very good temperature resistance and impact strength. Polyamide is also characterized by very good chemical resistance and is a particularly oil-resistant plastic.

These are the properties of PA

Properties of polyamide plastics are

  • high wear resistance
  • high thermal stability
  • very good strength and hardness
  • high mechanical damping properties
  • good sliding properties
  • good chemical resistance

PA hoses

Masterflex PA hoses

We process the material polyamide (PA) to pneumatic hoses. Here is a selection of the hoses we manufacture in this area:

Pneumatic hoses made of PA or PUR?

We don't have one pneumatic hose - we offer you a wide range of high-quality compressed air hoses in different materials and suitabilities. The decisive factor is the requirements placed on the hose:

  • What pressure must the hose withstand?
  • What are the space requirements when laying / assembling?
  • What environmental influences is the hose exposed to?
  • What media does the hose come into contact with?
  • Are there any special regulations that the hose must fulfill?

In addition to PA, Masterflex also processes other materials

Polyurethane (PUR)

PUR is the ideal material for industrial hoses that must be used to transport highly abrasive or problematic media.
