Durethan® is the trade name for our range of engineering thermoplastics based on polyamide 6 and polyamide 66.


Polyamides are partially crystalline thermoplastics which offer an ideal combination of properties, especially for technical applications. In addition to being easy to process, polyamides combine high mechanical strength and stiffness with good dielectric properties, high resistance to both heat and chemical attack and good friction and wear properties.

Please note that polyamides are hygroscopic materials, that is, they will absorb moisture from the atmosphere over time in a reversible process known as conditioning (typically 1-3% depending on grade). Conditioning greatly improves the toughness of the material including properties such as strain at break and impact strength. Modulus (stiffness) and stress at break, on the other hand, will decrease.

Our product range includes
Durethan A polyamide 66 based, used in a variety of markets and applications, including automotive, furniture, power tool housings, and lawn and garden equipment. In particular, because of its resistance to glycol, Durethan A nylon is used for automotive cooling circuits. search
Durethan Bpolyamide 6 based, used in a variety of markets and applications, including automotive, furniture, power tool housings, lawn and garden equipment, and packaging film for medical, food and industrial goods. search
Durethan Ttransparent polyamide, a partially aromatic polyamide that is used in applications requiring resistance to hydrocarbons, lipids and disinfectants as well as medical applications requiring biocompatibility (FDA-modified ISO-10993-1).search
