Lauramid® application example: Medical engineering

In the medical engineering field, machine components often face particular challenges. For example high chemical resistance is required due to the use of aggressive disinfectants.

At the same time, the equipment must also run with as little noise and as smoothly as possible. The Lauramid® high-performance polyamide meets these requirements perfectly. Lauramid® is available as a food safe version for use in particularly sensitive areas.
