Lauramid Inject® 970: For functional injection moulded parts
The injection mouldable Lauramid Inject® 970 granulate was developed by the Handtmann Elteka engineers as the result of intensive research and testing. It is made of a regranulate of the 12C Lauramid® polyamide and is ideal for small components (e.g. rollers) produced in large batches.
The result is a material that, due to the low water absorption, exhibits moderate swelling characteristics and also boasts up to 80 % of the excellent mechanical properties of a cast Lauramid®.
Castors, bearing rollers and guide rollers made of Lauramid Inject® 970 retain their dimensional stability, even when used in damp conditions or when exposed to the weather.
The basic colour of Lauramid Inject® 970 is black. On request, Handtmann Elteka can provide colour masterbatches for components of other colours.
Advantages of Lauramid Inject® 970
- Absorbs significantly less water than all other injectable polyamides
- Good dimensional stability and resistance to wear
- Good shock absorption characteristics
- Injectable thicknesses up to 5 mm
