Ultramid® A3Z HP UV

High impact modified nylon 66 with 30-50% higher flow


The new Ultramid® A3Z HP UV (High Productivity) Impact Modified Nylon 66 (Polyamide 66) line, has a 30-50% flow improvement over existing impact modified Ultramid® nylon 66 grades. This improvement in flow allows for a faster mold fill with thinner sections over longer distances. Ultramid® A3Z HP UV Nylon 66 offers both outstanding flow and high impact properties. Ultramid® A3Z available in black and in uncolored if color matching is required.


The application possibilities are endless with this new product line. Potential industrial application areas include: safety equipment, fasteners, fuel tanks, furniture & hardware parts and sporting goods. Additionally, these products can be considered for automotive components such as gas caps, straps, clamps & cables, trim clips, starter coil forms and transmission cables. The flow is so impressive that this product has the ability to fill automotive roof rack rails!


Ultramid® A3Z HP UV also provides excellent weatherability and resistance to sunlight, exhibiting minimal color shifts. Potential applications include: Exterior decorative and functional accessories, including running board end caps, roof rack stanchions, base covers, side rails, and levers.
