Produced since more than 30 years from Oil source (Laurynlactam), PA12 is a techno-polymer used in high requirement applications because of its outstanding properties:

  • Very good dimensional stability
  • High mechanical properties, especially resistant to high pressure
  • Outstanding weathering resistance
  • Very good abrasion resistance
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • Wide range of working temperature (from -60°C to +130°C)
  • High flexibility
  • Excellent hydrolysis resistance

PA12 is widely used in the air-braking systems for trucks and trailers, automotive fuel lines, fluid and gas (included compressed air) handlings where chemical resistance and strength are required. PA12 is used in C.BEST tubes.
