Grilamid Polyamide 12 (PA12) is formed by the polymerisation of laurolactam, a ring-shaped, long-chain monomer with 12 carbon atoms. Laurolactam, often called lactam 12, is obtained in a complex, multiple-step process from the basic raw material butadiene. EMS is backward integrated for lactam 12 and produces it in a joint-venture where EMS holds a two-third majority.
Depending on formulation and viscosity, Grilamid PA12 can be processed using a range of different methods such as injection-moulding, pipe extrusion, film extrusion or blow-moulding.
