Molding and Extrusion Compound PA is a subcategory of Polyamide. It is specially formulated to molding and extrusion compound. Its elastic modulus ranges from 380 to 464 MPa. Its flexural modulus ranges from 390 to 410 MPa. Its tensile strength ranges from 6000 to 24000 MPa at break. Its compressive strength ranges from 13000 to 16000 MPa. Its Izod Impact strength ranges from 0.6 to 2.2 J/cm. Its elongation at break ranges from 30 to 100 %. Its specific gravity ranges from 1.12 to 1.14. Its coefficient of thermal expansion ranges from 80 to 83 x 10-6/°C. Its melting temperature ranges from 210 to 220 °C. Its molding pressure ranges from 1 to 20 MPa.

Polyamide, also known as PA, is a thermoplastic polycondensate. Common trade names are Ultramid and Zytel. nylon (PA 6) It has high lubricity and moderate strength. It is tough, inexpensive, but has poor dimensional stability due to water absorption (hygroscopic nature). PA is commonly used to make high-lubricity parts such as bearings, blow moldings molds, and clothing fabrics.
