SCHULADUR® is a semi crystalline engineered compound often used for precision parts and high quality moldings for industrial, electronic or automotive applications.

SCHULADUR® is based on polybutylene- or polyethylen terephthalate as well as specialty blends and alloys

Key characteristics of SCHULADURTM are:

  • Low water absorption
  • Excellent dimensional stability
  • high rigidity and strength
  • outstanding heat ageing performance
  • high color stability at high temperatures
  • excellent resistance to weathering
  • high good sliding properties
  • good chemical resistance


A wide range of modifications makes SCHULAMID® one of most suitable and versatile engineered plastics!

The SCHULAMID® family covers a wide range of engineered compounds based on Polyamide 6, Polyamide 66, Polyamide 612, and Polyamide 12.

SCHULAMID® grades are available for injection molding, extrusion and blow molding. Modified grades are also available for special processing technologies such as GID (gas assisted injection molding), WIT (water injection technology), laser marking and laser welding.
