VESTAMID® Terra HS is partly based on renewable raw materials and fills the performance gap between the commodity and the niche long-chain nylons. Technically speaking, VESTAMID® Terra HS occupies a position between the high- performance polyamide 612 and the standard polyamides PA 6 and PA 66. VESTAMID® Terra HS is semicrystalline and thus has high mechanical resistance and chemical stability. Due to its higher melting point, VESTAMID® Terra HS has the highest heat deflection temperature of VESTAMID® Terra series.
VESTAMID® Terra HS (PA 610) at a glance:
62% based on bio-renewables
Carbon Footprint: 4.6 kg CO2eq.
Very high mechanical strength
Good UV and chemical resistance
Excellent heat distortion resistance
Low water absorption compared to standard short-chain polyamides
Fills a position between mass polyamides such as PA 6 or PA 66 and long-chain niche products
