PA-6 - Polyamide-6
Polyamide-6 also called polycaprolactam (PA-6), is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic. PA6 is used for the production of technical parts requiring good mechanical resistance. It has a low coefficient of friction, good thermal resistance and electrical insulation properties.
It is widely used for gears, fittings and bearings, in the automotive industry for the underlying parts, and as a material for electrical boxes.
