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

Polymer Type

Thermoplastic

Advantages

Good wear and abrasion properties even at low temperatures. Good de-moulding properties and good flowability. Noise and vibration absorption.

Disadvantages

Reduced notched impact strength and elongation at break when compared with unmodified polyamide 6/6. About twice the cost of unmodified polyamide 6/6.
