Lauramid® application example: Automotive
Dimensionally stable Lauramid® components are also used in the automotive industry, for example as rollers in vehicle sliding doors and as pedal components. They can also be deployed in electromechanical steering gears.
The minimal flattening in static state, the low rolling resistance, the extremely low component weight and the dimensional stability are just a few of the reasons for choosing this unfilled cast polyamide. Components made of Lauramid® are thus highly reliable for the entire service life of the vehicle.
