Polyphthalamide (PPA) is an aromatic and semi-crystalline polyamide. It possesses competitive physical properties compared to its counterparts such as nylon 6/6. PPA is stronger and stiffer compared to other polyamides and possesses high thermal capabilities. Furthermore, it is less sensitive to moisture and has substantial creep resistance and chemical fatigue. PPA resin is used in an extensive range of applications due to its exceptional thermal, electrical, and physical properties. The resin offers resistance to infrared soldering environments, unlike many other resins. Moreover, PPA is cost-effective compared to other polyamides. The competitive advantages of PPA mentioned above are expected to drive the polyphthalamide resin market during the forecast period.
