GENESTAR™ is a new polyamide-based
engineering plastic developed from unique monomers.
GENESTAR™ PA9T is unique in having superior performance in terms of low water absorption,
high heat resistance, high chemical resistance, and dimensional precision characteristics, and is
widely used in industrial parts in addition to electrical and electronic parts and automotive parts.
GENESTAR™ PA9C is excellent in heat resistance and light resistance.
It is adopted as the latest smartphone and LED TV.
PA9T has the following features.
The water absorption of polyamide is determined by amide group concentration. Because of the long chain diamine structure, it is low in amide group concentration and is difficult to absorb water.
PA9T is excellent in mechanical properties at high temperature. Since the glass transition temperature is 125℃, it can withstand sufficiently even in the automobile engine room which has been heated.
PA9T is suppresses the occurrence of blisters. It has been proven to suppress blistering even after reflow.
Among polyamides, it boasts the highest level of dimensional stability. It can also be used for products where dimensional change becomes a problem.
Since PA9T is a homopolymer, it has been confirmed that it has less generation of gas during molding and is superior in moldability compared to general high heat-resistant polyamide products.
PA9T shows excellent tracking resistance. Therefore, it is suitable for USB type C and power semiconductor modules, as well as connectors that require high voltage.
Even when immersed in various chemicals such as gasoline and engine oil which can not be avoided in automotive applications, it boasts high strength retention rate.
PA9T is often used for in-vehicle connectors because coloring is good and color change is small after reflow.
*In addition to the above colors, we have a FAKRA color for automotive.
PA9C is excellent in weather resistance because there is no light absorption band which causes deterioration by grade for LED reflector plate.
