PA66 (Polyamide 66)

PA66 is a popular engineering thermoplastic material and commonly used as a replacement to metal in many different applications. PA66 exhibits high strength properties, high hardness, and deformation stability. And it has lower water absorption and shows higher heat resistance and better insulating properties compared to PA6. PA66 is widely used in many different markets and applications because of its good cost–performance ratio.

  • High Strength & Stiffness at high temperature.
  • Excellent Abrasion & Wear Resistance
  • High Impact Strength
  • Outstanding Fuel & Oil Resistance
  • Good Fatigue Resistance
  • Good Electrical Insulating Properties
