What is a Polyamide compound (PA)?
Polyamide compounds (PAs) are thermoplastic polymers and they occur both naturally and artificially. Examples of naturally occurring polyamide compounds are wool and silk. Polyamides can be aliphatic, semi-aromatic or fully aromatic thermoplastics. The aromatic polyamides (e.g. Kevlar), have higher strength, better solvent, flame and heat resistance and greater dimensional stability than aliphatic polyamides (e.g. Nylon), but they are much more expensive and more difficult to produce.
