Nylon PA6 is a tough, nylon-based plastic. Its properties include high absorption of moisture (up to 3% in standard atmosphere), high abrasion resistance and high mechanical/impact strength. As well as this, Nylon PA6 offers excellent machinability, very good absorption of noise and vibration, very good sliding properties, and weldability and adhesive characteristics. When it comes to engineering, it's the complete package.
Typical areas of application include:
- Mechanical engineering
- Aircraft construction
- Vehicle construction
- Food processing industry
