ARLEN™ Modified Polyamide 6T

ARLEN™ is a heat resistant, modified polyamide 6T developed by Mitsui Chemicals, Inc. With a high melting point (320°C) and a rigidity level comparable to super engineering plastics, it possesses strong dimensional stability and chemical resistance. In addition, the effect of water absorption, which is a traditional weakness of polyamides, has been reduced to a minimum.

There are three individual offerings in the modified polyamide product series; each polyamide designed to meet a specific application requirement as presented below:

A/G Series Mechanical and structural parts
AE Series For tribological applications
C Series Electrical and electronic parts

ARLEN™ Modified Polyamide 6T Physical Characteristics

Electrical and Electronic: For a graphical presentation of ARLEN's electrical and electronic characteristics, please click on the chart below:

Mechanical and Structural:

  • High temperature rigidity - Due to its high glass transition point (125°C), ARLEN can retain high rigidity even in a high-temperature atmosphere, such as the inside of an engine room.
  • Heat Resistant
  • Dimensional Stability
  • Chemical Resistance - demonstrating the best chemical resistance of all polyamide resins.


  • Little dimensional change due to water absorption - The dimensional change of ARLEN due to water absorption is less than 1/2 of PA66, which is the lowest of all polyamide resins.
