Advantages of polyamide

1.      No post-treatment (removal of burrs, machining, threading, soaking) No surface treatment (corrosion resistance, easy coloring)

2.      Easy handling (transport, storage and assembly)

3.      Longer die life (4-5 times the life of aluminum die casting die)

4.      Shorten production cycle (multi-mode cavity, continuous production)


How to achieve metal replacement?

Considering the high rigidity and strength of metals, many people believe that it is difficult for plastics to directly replace metals. However, in many cases, metal properties are often overused due to insufficient technical reliability assessment or lack of early computer-aided simulation. In other words, many applications do not need metal at all, and high performance polyamides through filling enhancement and product structure design optimization, make it possible to achieve high performance polyamides metal replacement. Compared with the high rigidity and strength of metal, the overall strength of plastic products can be determined by:

Material reinforced glass fiber, carbon fiber filled with reinforced high temperature nylon (such as PPA), can achieve material strength comparable to metal.
