Nylon 6, 6

Nylon 6,6 or PA66 based materials have a high melt temperature in the region of 260°C. In addition to high thermal stability, PA66 is characterised by a high level of hardness, abrasion resistance and rigidity. It is often used in machine and automobile construction where prefabricated components are exposed to high mechanical and thermal stresses.


In comparison to PA6, PA66 offers:

  • Lower moisture absorption
  • Higher modulus
  • Improved wear and abrasion resistance
  • Increased short term heat resistance
