This new polyphthalamide PPA material from BASF SE has long alkyl chains and partially aromatic groups. This explains its low water absorption and high thermal and chemical resistance. Based on its high hydrophobic properties, this plastic material also has an unexpectedly high dimensional stability compared to other polyamides. Due to the low tendency to water absorption, the mechanical properties remain constant over a wide range. Its wear behaviour and toughness also open up numerous areas of application.
