Polyamide 6/6 - Nylon 6/6 - PA 6/6 Molybdenum-Disulphide Lubricated

Polymer Type

Thermoplastic

Advantages

Low friction and excellent wear resistance (self-lubricating). High dry modulus relative to unmodified polyamide 6/6.

Disadvantages

Notched impact strength and elongation at break reduced compared with unmodified polyamide 6/6.
