Polyamides are subdivided into various basic types. The most important for technical applications are PA-6, PA-66, PA-6G, PA-12 & PA-46 and these have established themselves as the most important representatives of the polyamide materials.
Product detailsPolyamide 6 (PA 6) is the best known extruded polyamide and offers a combination of all typical polyamide material properties. Compared to the cast varieties however, this variety displays higher water absorption, is less wear resistant and has less dimensional stability. Furthermore, because of the manufacturing process, only a limited size range and unit weight can be produced. This restricts the design possibilities of the user.
- Good mechanical stability
- High impact resistance
- Good damping properties
Typical application examples are :
- Gears and sprockets
- Hammer heads
- Impact and shock resistant components
- Light duty rollers & wheels
- Jigs & fixtures
- Nuts, bolts & washers
