PA46 (Nylon 46)

PA46 is a semi-crystalline, high heat resistant polyamide. Compared to many other aliphatic nylons, it offers much better mechanical properties retention at high temperatures. It has excellent wear resistance, outstanding level of stiffness, good electrical insulation properties and high chemical resistance.

  • High Crystallization Speeds & High Crystallinity come from the structural symmetry ensuring that the polymers fit in the crystal in multiple ways.
  • Highly Resistant to Chemicals:Including fuels, greases, and oils.
  • Excellent Wear Resistance:Outperforms most high-performance engineering plastics under most conditions.
  • High Temperature Resistance
  • Easy Processing because of its outstanding flow.
