Polyamides (Nylon) Brief Introduce
Polyamides (Nylon) are molding compounds based on PA 6, PA 66 and copolyamides such as PA 66/6. Due to their outstanding properties these materials have become indispensable in almost all fields of engineering for the most varied components and machine parts, as high-quality electrical insulating materials and for many special applications.
Polyamides (Nylon) are exceptional for their high mechanical strength, rigidity and thermal stability. Moreover, polyamides afford good impact resistance even at low temperatures, advantageous sliding friction properties and problem-free processing.
PA 6 (unreinforced) is a tough and strong material affording parts with good damping characteristics and high shock resistance even in the dry state and at low temperatures. PA 6 is distinguished by particularly high impact resistance and ease of processing.

Among the unreinforced polyamides, PA 66 along with the material with greatest hardness, rigidity, abrasion resistance and thermostability. It is one of the preferred materials for parts subject to mechanical and thermal stresses in electrical, mechanical, automotive and chemical engineering.
This is the name given to copolyamides made from PA 6 and PA 66 building blocks. The formulation of the copolymer provides enhanced flowability in injection molding and higher clarity in film extrusion applications.
