Polyamide (PA6) shows both a high thermostability (temperature resistant from -40 °C to approx. +100 °C) and high stiffness, hardness and toughness. These are some of the main characteristics.
High strength and stiffness;
High impact and notching impact strength;
High heat deflection temperature;
Good at dampening;
Good glide and damping ability;
Good chemical stability against organic solvents and fuels;
Size alteration by humidity absorption must be considered;
Dimension stability, electrical and mechanical properties may become affected by absorbing moisture or water.
Bearing parts (good sliding properties), gear wheels, pump parts, sliding rails, castors (reduction of the noise level), fittings.
Sheets: thickness 2-100 mm, size 1000x1000/2000 mm, 610x1000/2000/3000 mm.
Rods (full and empty): diameter 6-300 mm, length 1000/3000 mm.
