Ultramid® S Balance for Monofilaments

Ultramid® S Balance for Monofilaments


BASF is now globally offering Ultramid® S Balance in a version for monofilament applications. The high performance polyamide 6.10, partly based on renewable resources, is available in various viscosities. The bio-based sebacic acid, which is used to produce Ultramid® S Balance, originates from the castor oil plant. In compounded and glass-fibre reinforced versions, BASF has already introduced the material in different commercial applications, eg, in a design lamp or automotive quick connectors. "The demand for bio-based raw materials is increasing worldwide," says Hermann Althoff, Senior Vice-President of the Global Polyamide and Intermediates Business Unit.

“The introduction of Ultramid® S Balance for monofilament applications is another contribution of BASF to support this trend." Polyamide 6.10 offers unique mechanical properties such as higher dimensional stability and softness compared to polyamide 6 or polyamide 6.6. Many of the benefits arise from less moisture absorption and higher carbon content. Due to its specific properties, Ultramid® S Balance can be used in various monofilament applications, eg, filters for paper machine clothing or industrial brushes, as well as textile fibres and different engineering plastic applications.
