Industrial applications

It’s Polyamide but with low water absorption.

The resin for plumbing parts requires an engineering plastic with superior long-term heat aging resistance and dimensional stability by water absorption, in addition to strength that can withstand water pressure.
In recent years, there is a growing demand for a resin with an excellent balance of performance and cost to meet increasing cost reduction requirements.

GENESTAR™ PA9T is one of the few resins that can meet these strict requirements in terms of physical properties.
Because it has better specific gravity, molding cycle, and molding cost compared to PPS, the production cost of PA9T is expected to be lower than the production costs of PPS.
