Sustamid® Nylon PA 46 Extruded

SUSTAMID® PA46 extruded from Stanyl® 46 resin manufactured by DSM, is a heat resistant aliphatic polyamide mainly used in demanding applications in the electrical / electronics and automotive industries.

Although there are similarities between PA46 and PA66, the more symmetrical molecular chain structure in SUSTAMID® PA46 results in a higher melting temperature (295°C), a higher crystallinity and faster crystallisation. This means a higher heat distortion temperature of 170°C.

SUSTAMID® PA46 (Stanyl®) is a distinctive Rust colour.

PA 46 can be characterised by the following properties:

  • Excellent short-term and long-term heat resistance
  • High stiffness at elevated temperatures
  • High creep resistance, especially at elevated temperatures
  • Outstanding toughness
  • Excellent fatigue behaviour
  • Good resistance to chemicals
  • A high PV rating
  • Very good co-efficient of friction
  • Excellent abrasion resistance
  • Excellent electrical insulation properties
