Genestar is a polyamide engineering plastic developed from a unique C9 monomer.

Genestar properties include low water absorption, heat resistance, high chemical resistance, and dimensional precision. Its applications range from electrical to automotive parts. It offers a superior cost-performance alternative to traditional materials such as fluoropolymers, PPA (PA6T, PA4T, PA10T), PA46, PPS, and LCP.
