Global Polyether Block Amide Market: Introduction
Polyether block amide is a high-performance, closed-cell, cross-linked foam-based thermoplastic elastomer. It has a fairly low material density as compared to thermoplastic elastomers. It can be used in its pure form as an additive or blended with other rubbers or polymers.
Among the other thermoplastic elastomer polyether blocks, amide has better mechanical and chemical properties along with high flexibility. Moreover, it has a versatile processing capability with technologies such as injection moulding, extrusion, roto-moulding, foaming and fibre & melt spinning. Moreover, due to its light weight, toughness and durability, it is a highly preferred material for the manufacturing of shoe soles and footwear products. Furthermore, polyester block amide is also used as a permanent antistatic additive to solve static issues and create a safe environment for electronic components. It is also used in the manufacturing of various automotive interiors such as airbag components.
