SustamidŽ PA6 G - Natural

 

This type of nylon is unique in its manufacturing process. Where most thermoplastics are in the form of polymerised granules that are melted, formed and cooled down to produce a shape via an extrusion or injection moulding process, PA6 G, "G" being an abbreviation of the German word "Guss" meaning to cast, is a liquid caprolactum which, when poured into a mould, polymerises under heat and vacuum.

This process results in a high-molecular and highly crystalline polyamide type 6 material with outstanding physical properties and benefits for a vast range of applications. It also provides basic shapes such as a rod, sheet or tube that have excellent machining properties and produced in a variety of sizes. In addition to standard shapes, irregular and large partially finished shapes, such as large gear blanks or ring segments, can be manufactured economically. 

Sustamid PA6 G has similar mechanical properties and chemical resistance to Type 66 nylon.

PROPERTIES: 

  • Good sliding properties
  • High mechanical strength
  • Outstanding corrosion and chemical resistance
  • Excellent electrical insulating properties
  • Very easy to machine.
  • EU & FDA approved for direct food contact applications
  • Working temperature range of -40°C to 110°C continuous.

APPLICATIONS: Rollers, rope pulleys, sheaves, trunion rollers, wheels, bushes, bearings, gears, cams, slide plates and wear strips. An ideal substitute for bronze, brass or aluminium parts.
