Description: BASF supplies polyamide 610 for processing by injection molding under the trade name Ultramid® Balance which is produced by polycondensation of hexamethylene diamine and sebacic acid. This means that more than 60 % of the base polymer for the product family consists of sustainable raw materials. Ultramid® S Balance is highly resistant to fuels, oils and greases, to most solvents, aqueous solutions and alkalis. Its resistance to weakly acid media makes it superior to PA 6 and PA 66.
Overmolding metal and electronic components that come into contact with aggressive media, for example wheel speed sensors
Housing and gear components where dimensional stability is a major consideration
plug-in connectors, pipes and reservoirs in cooling circuits with high demands on hydrolysis resistance
