Sustamid Nylons


Also known as Polyamide (PA), Nylon is a partially crystalline thermoplastic and is known as the workhorse of engineering plastics due to its variety of properties.

Because of its good mechanical strength, abrasion resistance, chemical, thermal and low friction properties, it has earned a reputation as an excellent bearing material. Hardness and strength, yet toughness and tenacity are the combination that makes Nylon so versatile and the solution for many difficult applications.

Nylon has evolved over the years and is available in a number of commercial stock shape grades each having specific properties and benefits, examples are type 6, 66, 11, 12 & 46 most of which are copolymer grades although much development has been done in recent years with Type 6 Monomer Cast Caprolactum grades as listed in the first section below.

GRADE: PA6 G (Monomer Cast)

  • SUSTAMID® PA6 G - Natural
  • SUSTAMID® PA6 GMO - Molybdenum Disulphide Filled Carbon Black
  • SUSTAMID® PA6 GOL - Liquid Lubricant Filled - Yellow in colour
  • SUSTAMID® PA6 GLU - Incorporating a Sliding Additive - Red in colour
  • SUSTAGLIDE® - lubricating Matrix - Green in colour
  • SUSTAGLIDE® PLUS-Reinforcement non-abrasive filler plus sliding additive-Grey in colour "new in stock"
  • SUSTAMID® GHI - Elastomeric Impact modified type
  • SUSTAMID® GIC - Elastomeric Impact modified type at low temperatures
  • SUSTAMID® GLL - Copolymer low water absorption type with high shock load capability
  • SUSTAMID® GGK - Mineral reinforced resulting in a 40% higher modulus of elasticity compared to PA6G
  • SUSTAMID® GHS - Antioxidant type with high temperature resistance
