During injection moulding with PA-V2 (polyamide or nylon with fire retardant – self-extinguishing up to max. 30 seconds), PA and V2 are fused by thermoplastic bonding during the injection moulding process.
PA-V2 Injection Moulding
Extra strengtheners, high-gloss properties, heat resistance and anti-static properties can be added during the production process.
With PA-V2 injection moulding, plastic products, shaped components and housings take on material properties that contribute to a longer service life. The wide-ranging advantages include:
- Chemical resistance
- Very tough, unbreakable
- High damping properties
- Very easy to process mechanically
- Wear and impact resistance
- Good gliding and rolling properties
- Can withstand high dynamic loads
- Fireproof plastic
- Very moisture absorbent
PA-V2 injection moulding: fireproof and long service life
PA-V2 injection moulding is a good choice when products, shaped components or housings need to be fireproof and have a long service life.

When can PA-V2 be used?
Would you like to know when PA-V2 can be used? Nylon or polyamide is resistant to many chemicals and also has good resistance to oils, fats and petrol. Some types are even food-safe and suitable for use in the food industry. It is ideal for mechanical parts that are exposed to shock loads and elevated temperatures. A number of examples are listed below.
- Fire-resistant cable ducts, infrastructure
- Components for machinery, rolls, wear strips and cable sheaves and pulleys
- And much more: coverings, tools, cogs
UV stabilisers are added to products that will be used outdoors.
Processing, finishing and assembly
Before the PA granulate can be processed, it is first dried in the desiccant dryer. Then the injection moulding process can begin and the granulate is melted. After that, the material is injected into the mould. The cooling and pressure holding process give the shaped component its final shape.
After ejection, the shaped component is conditioned by placing the product in a water basin and letting it rest for some time. This step hardens the material and gives it even more toughness and impact resistance. Once this process is complete, the product can move on to finishing and assembly.

There are various ways to finish a product. See the assembly page for information on finishing and assembly at HSV Technical Moulded Parts, including paintwork, embossing, galvanising, prints and metallising, etc.
What does PA-V2 injection moulding cost?
Would you like to request a cost estimate for PA-V2 injection moulding for your plastic product? Request a plastic QuickScan here. Our plastic experts will assess the feasibility of your product design and you will receive an initial estimate of the costs.
At the HSV Technical Moulded Parts injection moulding company, we consider sustainable production of plastic products to be important, just like recycling and reusing plastics. PA-V2 is aligned with the circular economy and can be recycled and reused. Read more about corporate social responsibility at HSV-TMP.
