PA6 - Polyamide 6
Polyamide 6 (PA 6) - is the most common extruded polyamide and offers a balanced combination of all typical characteristics of this group of materials.
Damping properties and impact strength of the material deserve to be emphasized as much as high tenacity even at low temperatures. Good abrasion resistance, particularly against sliding friction partners with rough surfaces, rounds off the overall picture.
Compared to the cast types, PA 6G, PA 6 has higher moisture absorption, is less wear-resistant, and is slightly less dimensionally stable. There is also a limit to the size of semi-finished products and the unit weight which can be achieved due to the manufacturing process.
Some of the Polyamide 6 advantages include:
- good mechanical strength
- high impact strength
- good damping characteristics
- good sliding properties
