Lighter and Quieter

BASF's Ultramid® (polyamide) material enables light-weighting opportunities with superior strength and rigidity that results in a high performing polyamide solution alternative to aluminum.


The superior mechanical properties of Ultramid®'s CR (crash resistant) grades provide excellent damping performance versus aluminum. The Ultrramid® CR grades are manufactured to tight specification tolerances and when combined with our ULTRASIM® material characterization provide the highest confidence in part performance and predictability.


Body, engine, and transmission mounts manufactured with Ultramid® CR and combined with ULTRASIM® help customers develop lightweighting solutions that are optimized and use BASF Ultramid® CR polyamide materials to minimize the total cost of the part.
