Lauramid® application example: Petrochemistry

Not only due to its resistance to crude oil and natural gas condensate is the high-molecular and highly crystalline plastic Lauramid® excellently suited for use in the petrochemistry industry, e.g. as seals.

The high resistance to pressure and the good memory characteristics in low and high pressure ranges, as well as the excellent temperature resistance up to 140 °C make Lauramid® components ideal for use in this demanding field of application.
