Polyamides consist of a wide range of different types, which can be used for textiles, sportswear and engineered components. The types, used by SKF, are engineering thermoplastics with good sliding properties. Polyamides absorb water, therefore for applications in water or water-based fluids, the swelling of the material must be taken into account.
