This grade is noted for its elevated mechanical strength, rigidity, abrasion and heat resistance. Its impact strength and vibration damping abilities are reduced when compared to PA 6, making this the preferred extruded grade for highly stressed, thermally loaded components.

Key features

  • Excellent sliding and wear properties
  • Perfect balance of mechanical strength, toughness and rigidity
  • Good electrical insulating properties
  • Various FDA compliant grades available
