PA 6C Natural

This unmodified grade, produced by an anionic polymerisation casting process, demonstrates similar characteristics to PA 66 E. Cast products contain significantly lower stress levels combined with high strength, good creep and wear resistance resulting in great dimensional accuracy when machining.

Key features

  • Good mechanical, thermal and chemical resistance properties
  • Universally acknowledged as the primary engineering polymer
  • Good PV and load bearing capabilities
  • Improved characteristics over extruded polyamides
  • Good wear and abrasion resistance
  • Good dimensional stability, largely free from internal stresses
  • FDA compliance
  • Available in a wide range of colours to order
