Polyamide 11 - Nylon 11 - PA 11 Semi Flexible

Polymer Type

Thermoplastic

Advantages

Improved notched impact strength and abrasion resistance, softer and more flexible than unmodified PA 11.

Disadvantages

Higher coefficient of expansion, reduced heat distortion temperature and resistance to creep compared with unmodified PA 11.
