Recalon® Polyamide 6/66

Material Introduction

PA6 is the industry-proven engineering plastic that has the most extensive application. This polyamide (PA) 6 shows extraordinary excellence in terms of toughness (even at low temperature), electrical insulation and chemical resistance. PA 6 sheet and rod are widely used for all kinds of machinery structures and parts. However, compared with PA6,PA66 is endowed with more superior hardness and rigidity, as well as greater resistance against abrasion and thermal stability.
