CEH: Polyamide Resins (Non-nylon types)
May 2020. There are two basic types of polyamide (non-nylon) resins: dimer acid–based (DAB) polyamides and polyamide-epichlorohydrin (PAE) resins. The DAB polyamides can be either reactive or nonreactive. Consumption of reactive DAB polyamides is largely dependent on use of epoxy resins use in anticorrosion coatings, flooring, and various adhesives applications. Most growth will come from Asia Pacific, mainly in mainland China and India. Only modest growth is expected in the more mature regions.
Nonreactive DAB polyamides are mainly consumed in printing inks and hot-melt adhesives. Use is mainly in flexographic inks to enhance certain properties, especially in flexible packaging applications. Growth is expected mainly in mainland China and other developing regions. Use in hot-melt adhesives include assembly of durable goods like shoes, electronics and automotive parts.
