SUSTAMID® PA6  

6G Cast Nylons

Sustamid® also known as Polyamide (PA), Nylon is a partially crystalline thermoplastic and is known as the workhorse of engineering plastics due to its variety of properties.

Because of its good mechanical strength, abrasion resistance, chemical, thermal and low friction properties, it has earned a reputation as an excellent bearing material. Hardness and strength, toughness and tenacity are the combination that makes Sustamid® Nylon so versatile and the solution for many difficult applications.

Sustamid® Nylon has evolved over the years and is available in a number of commercial stock shape grades each having specific properties and benefits, examples are type 6, 66, 11, 12 & 46 most of which are copolymer grades although much development has been done in recent years with Type 6 Monomer Cast Caprolactum grades.
