This paper discusses the increasing use of polyamides, in particular Nylon 11, in automobiles. By composite formulations, Nylon 11, in addition to providing the usual advantages of nylon, provide new areas of application, such as fuel lines, timing belts, metal coatings, etc. Further, other types of composites, such as with polyurethane or polyethylene, provide the automotive industry with materials for fabricated parts, such as reinforced hoses, hydraulic brakes and rotomoulded tanks
