Sustamid® PA6 G - Natural 


This type of nylon is unique in its manufacturing process. Where most thermoplastics are in the form of polymerised granules that are melted, formed and cooled down to produce a shape via an extrusion or injection moulding process, PA6 G, "G" being an abbreviation of the German word "Guss" meaning to cast, is a liquid caprolactum which, when poured into a mould, polymerises under heat and vacuum.

This process results in a high-molecular and highly crystalline polyamide type 6 material with outstanding physical properties and benefits for a vast range of applications. It also provides basic shapes such as a rod, sheet or tube that have excellent machining properties and produced in a variety of sizes. In addition to standard shapes, irregular and large partially finished shapes, such as large gear blanks or ring segments, can be manufactured economically.

Sustamid PA6 G has similar mechanical properties and chemical resistance to Type 66 nylon.
