Polyamide 6/10 - Nylon 6/10 - PA 6/10 20% PTFE Lubricated

Polymer Type

Thermoplastic

Advantages

Low coefficient of friction and superior wear resistance compared with unmodified PA 6/10.

Disadvantages

More expensive than silicone lubricated polyamide 6/10. Reduced tensile strength, rigidity and notched izod impact strength compared with unmodified PA 6/10.
