Ultramid® SI - the surface polyamide

Aesthetics and mechanics – no contradiction any longer

For even more design freedom regarding aesthetic, stability and surface quality BASF has developed Ultramid® SI. This surface polyamide combines the technical properties typical of polyamide with a particularly high-quality surface finish.
It is available in four specific grades – with 20%, 30% or 40% glass fibers or flame retardant.

  • Versatile application profile (e.g. for back frame, seat shells, mechanism, chair bases, fixing elements, castors and wheels)
  • High-quality surface look and feel
  • High stiffness, rigidity and impact strength, because of polyamide as polymer
  • Tailor-made UV resistance
  • Flame-retardant grades available
  • Virtually unlimited choice of colors with masterbatches from BASF Color Solutions
  • Advice in BASF's designfabrik®
  • CAE part design with BASF's Ultrasim®
