High performance thermoplastic block co-polyomersbased on nylon and polyethers are thermoplastic polyamide elastomers. They have difficult and soft components. The mechanical and thermal properties of thermoplastic polyamide elastomers are determined by the chemical structure and composition of these two parts. Hard segments are predominantly based on aliphatic polyamides, while soft segments are based on polyethers and aliphatics. Injection, extrusion, blow moulding, heat shaping and rotational moolding can be used to treat thermoplastic polyamide elastomers. These elastomers represent examples of polymers that are synthesized between functional groups by polycondensation reactions. The anionic ring opening polymerization of lactams may also be synthesized in thermoplastic polyamide elastomers. Factors that influence the final properties of thermoplastic polyamide elastomers include chemical composition, the molecular weight distribution and the proportion of hard and soft segments. Hard segments control mainly the level of crystallinity, melting and mechanical strength. Low temperature flexibility, thermal stability, and chemical resistance are the responsibility for soft segments.
