Durethan is a family of high-quality thermoplastics for engineering applications which offer an ideal combination of properties, such as high mechanical strength, high resistance to heat and good electrical insulation properties.

Durethan is a family of thermoplastics based on polyamide 6 and polyamide 66. Polyamides are partially crystalline plastics which offer an ideal combination of properties especially for technical applications. They combine 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 the environment on a reversible basis.
