- 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
- Excellent wear properties
- Electrical insulation
- Design freedom
- Excellent surface aspect
- Puncture and tear resistance
- 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.
- Bearing cages
