Performance Enhanced Nylon

Sustaglide® is a highly modified caprolactum grade, incorporating a lubricating "particulate matrix" that is evenly distributed throughout the polymer that further reduces the sliding coefficient of friction.

Sustaglide® is Green in colour.

This grade has 5 times higher Pressure-Velocity capability over standard Sustamid® PA6 G type.

According to EC and FDA regulations, Sustaglide® is suitable for use in contact with food.
