POLYAMID (NYLON 6) PRODUCTS ( Specific Weight: 1.135)

It is a material widely used in machinery industry. It is a material with relatively hardness, rigidness, slippery and good mechanical strength values. There are various uses for its gear applications, including wheel construction. 

However, it is not as hard and abrasion resistant as Kestamid, not as slippery as Pom C. Its chemical strength is moderate, and it is resistant to some acids and bases. The polyamide 6 has the ability to collect water on its own. These features have pros and cons. Pros is that it increases the strength of the part against vibration and sudden impacts.  

 

This allows the dynamic stresses that would otherwise occur during part use to be removed within itself. Cons is that it is difficult to achieve measurement stability in the material. In other words, the material is affected even by the moisture in the air and gets changes in the measurement. The tolerances must be observed before finishing the final processes of the part.

 

AREAS OF USE

It is used in simple gears, bearings, bolts, flanges, pulley belt pulleys, cut plate, filter plate, benchtop and all kinds of part manufacturing.
