Polyamide 6

Features:

  • Engineering thermoplastics
  • Tough, abrasion-resistant material.
  • Improved surface appearance, creep resistance, and processability compared to nylon 6/6.
  • Can be molded about 80 degrees F (27 degrees C) lower with less mold shrinkage because it is slightly less crystalline.
  • Nylon 6 has a lower modulus and absorbs moisture more rapidly than nylon 6/6.
  • Easy Processing
  • Good mechanical performance
  • Colourability
  • Excellent wear properties
  • Electrical insulation
  • Design freedom
  • Impact
  • Excellent surface aspect
  • Puncture and tear resistance

Applications:

  • Automotive (Door Handles & Radiator Grills)
  • Electrical (Low Voltage Switch Gears: has a range of sub-category applications, miniature circuit breakers, residual current devices, fuses, switches and relays, contactors and cabinets.)
  • Window Insulation
  • Fuel tank
  • Polyamide 6 is used in large applications in sport, such as ski bindings and in-line skates. This is because it has excellent fatigue properties and provides high impact and mechanical strength.
  • Pipes
  • Clips
  • Dowels
  • Bearing cages
