Suppliers of Polyamide, Nylon 6, Nylon 6/6, Nylon 11 and Nylon compounds for engineering, automotive electrical and other applications. Polyamide (Nylon) 6 Polyamide 6 has high impact strength, but compared to PA 66 it is less resistant to wear, absorbs more moisture and does not offer as good dimensional stability. Application of Nylon 6: high impact stress parts such as gears, lightly loaded slider pads, hammer heads. Polyamide (Nylon) 66 Nylon 66 is mainly used for smaller diameters. Compared to Nylon 6, Polyamide 66 is harder and has better wear properties. It is often used for slider pads. Polyamide (Nylon) 12 Nylon 12 has very high impact resistance and good wear resistance. Because of its low absorption of moisture the material has highly stable dimensions and changes its mechanical features only very slightly.
