ECOGEHR PA - Polyamide Bioplastic Shapes ECOGEHR PA 6.10 (polyamide) is based upon 60 % of a
renewable resource, sebacic acid, which is extracted
from castor beans. ECOGEHR PA 6.10 combines a low
specific gravity with a high impact strength at low temperatures.
It shows a good dimensional stability due to low
humidity absorption. With these properties, ECOGEHR
PA 6.10 is an adequate material even for applications,
where the standard PA 6 meets its limits.
ECOGEHR PA 11 is a high-performance technical
polyamide 11 polymer developed in 1942. It is produced
from castor beans. Its properties are basically
similar to the PA 12. The resin has earned a preferred
material status in the most demanding applications
due to its excellent combination of thermal, physical,
chemical and mechanical properties. Good impact
strength at low temperatures (-40°C), good chemical
resistance and low humidity absorption (only 1/6th
compared to standard PA 6) are outstanding characteristics
of the material.
