Polyamide 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. Due to the fact, that the good mechanical characteristics will be achieved only after conditioning, this material must be conditioned again after annealing. In addition, this conditioning occurs with a longer storage in air automatically.
- 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.
Very stress-relieved and high-molecular PA 6. Properties similar to PA 6.
Very tough (also in cold condition), high hardness.
Polyamide with the highest hardness, rigidity, a good resistance to wear and heat deflection temperature.
The 30% glass fibre reinforced PA 6.6 has an improved dimensional stability, a very high stiffness and heat resistance that allows further uses.
