PA66 Nylon

SUSTAMID® Nylon Type 66 is made from a highly viscous polymer that offers outstanding strength and tenacious properties over a wider temperature range and is also resistant to most chemicals and corrosive media.

SUSTAMID® Nylon Type 66 is preferred for automatic lathe and repetition work.
