Besno® is part of the nylon 11 family (polymers with 11 carbon atoms). It has good stress crack resistance, very low water absorption and good dimensional stability. It is semi-flexible.
Besno offers excellent mechnical properties over a wide temperature range. It has greater stability at high temperatures than Aesno.
