Technical DataSheet | Supplied by BASF

Ultramid® Vision by BASF is the first semi-transparent polyamide that allows light to pass through largely unhindered. Shows very high light transmission with low light scattering. Exhibits excellent chemical-, scratch-, outstanding UV- and outstanding temperature- resistance. Provides good colorability, processability and excellent stress cracking resistance to sun screen, cleaning agents, solvents and fats and oils. It has possible usage in many industries for visual check, illumination and light design. It is suitable for processing by injection molding. Is suitable for applications involving direct exposure to sunlight, back-lit switches and buttons or diffusely scattering light covers in chemically aggressive environments. Is also suitable for flame-retardant applications such as electrical and electronics and lighting elements.
