From Plastics Wiki, free encyclopedia
Polyamide-imides are thermoplastic amorphous polymers that have exceptional mechanical, thermal and chemical resistant properties. These properties put polyamide-imides at the top of the price and performance pyramid. Other high-performance polymers in this same realm are polyetheretherketones and polyimides.
Polyamide-imides hold, as the name suggests, a positive synergy of properties from both polyamides and polyimides, such as high strength, melt processabilty, exceptional high heat capability, and broad chemical resistance. Polyamide-imide polymers can be processed into a wide variety of forms -- from injection or compression molded parts and ingots -- to coatings, films, fibers and adhesives. Generally these articles reach their maximum properties with a subsequent thermal cure process. essay writing service
