Grilamid – Amorphous Polyamide Thermoplastics

Grilamid is a special type of amorphous thermoplastics that comes in various material grades. It has a particular composition that offers the amalgamation of robust properties of polyamide semi-crystalline materials with those of thermoplastic exclusively. The exclusive properties of these materials are high resistance to chemical and stress cracking. It also exhibit excellent transparency.

What is Grilamid made of?

Grilamid is available in the form of transparent polyamide granulates which are polymers. So it is made up of thermoplastic polyamide polymers. FDA and European directives have approved some specific grades of this type as food contact materials since the approved materials show the required bio-compatibility.

Material Properties

Some of the common properties of these materials are:

  • Low moisture absorption, thus resilient to atmosphere conditions
  • High transparency, thus used for variety of applications
  • High temperature required for heat distortion
  • High resistance to chemical reactions
  • Low density, thus light weight materials
  • Good flexural bending strength
  • High resistance to impact and fatigue
