Polyamide 66 (PA 66)

Features:

  • Nylon 6-6 is frequently used when high mechanical strength, great rigidity, and good stability under heat is required
  • Nylon 6/6 is one of the most versatile engineering thermoplastics.
  • excellent balance of strength, ductility and heat resistance,
  • Nylon 6/6 is an outstanding candidate for metal replacement applications.
  • Nylon 6/6 is very easy to process with a very wide process window. This allows it to be used for everything from complex, thin walled components to large thick walled housings.
  • Nylon 6/6 is very easy to modify with fillers, fibers, internal lubricants, and impact modifiers. With the use of fiber reinforcements, the physical strength of nylon 6/6 can be improved five times that of the base resin.
  • The stiffness of nylon 6/6 can be improved up to 10 times. With impact modifiers, the ductility of nylon 6/6 is comparable to polycarbonate.
  • The use of internal lubricants improves on the already excellent wear resistance and friction properties on nylon 6/6. Its versatility allows it to be used in almost any application that requires high physical strength, ductility, heat resistance and chemical resistance.
  • Good mechanical and impact resistance
  • Colourability
  • Used in high temperature environments
  • Heat stabilize systems allow sustained performance at temperatures up to 185°C (for reinforced systems).

Applications:

  • It is used for ball bearing cages, electro-insulating elements, pipes, profiles and various machine parts
  • Power tools
  • Cables
  • Furniture
  • Protection equipments
