Polyamide 6 (PA6)

Polyamid (PA) 6 is one of the most common structural plastic. PA 6 is perceived as slightly easier to process and has a higher impact strength than PA 6.6. Moisture absorption is higher and thermal resistance is 30-40 C lower than PA 6.6.

PA6 Properties

  • Semi-crystalline structure with Tg of 50 C and melting point of 223 C
  • Easy to process
  • High impact resistance
  • Good mechanical properties up to 120-140 C
  • Chemical resistant to strong acids and alkalis
  • Moderate price
  • High air absorption
