Sustamid® PA66 Natural

SUSTAMID® Nylon Type 66 is made from a highly viscous polymer that offers outstanding strength and tenacious properties over a wider temperature range and is also resistant to most chemicals and corrosive media.

This grade of polyamide is characterised by the following properties:

  • Highest stiffness and hardness within the non-reinforced polyamides group
  • Highest creep resistance within the non-reinforced polyamides group
  • Low impact strength and mechanical damping
  • Excellent service temperature range of -30°C to 95°C with short-term peak excursions to 170°C
  • Good long term behaviour to heat ageing
  • High resistance to oils, greases, aliphatic / aromatic and most halogenated hydrocarbons
  • Not resistant to strong acids
  • Excellent dimensional stability
  • Less impact resistance than type 6
  • Excellent sliding properties
  • Low deformation under load and compression
  • High wear resistance
  • Good bearing properties
  • Excellent electrical insulating properties
  • EC & FDA approved for food applications

Fields of application: friction bearings, gears, slider plates, high-pressure guide rails, wheels, rollers, electrical insulators, and pump bearings.
