Using high quality recycled polyamides (PA6, PA66) is not only very economical, but also an environmentally friendly solution. This environmental aspect is recently accented by many companies especially in the automotive, domestic appliance, electrical & lighting or furniture industry sectors.
Polyamide resins are hydroscopic but the water absorption is a reversible process. They absorb water from direct immersion and from humid air. The amount of water absorbed normally depends on the exposure time, the air temperature and the relative humidity; the maximum moisture level absorbed is normally 3.5% (saturated in air at 23°C, 50% R.H.)
At the temperatures used to mould PA, moisture levels can cause visual flaws and the brittleness of the moulded part.
Polyamide PA6 sheets
Polyamide 6 (PA 6) also called Nylon 6 is the most common polyamide which offers a balanced combination of all typical characteristics of this group of materials. Damping properties and impact strength of the material deserve to be emphasized as much as high tenacity even at low temperatures.
Compared to the types with fillers, PA 6 / Nylon 6 sheets have a higher moisture absorption, are less wear-resistant, and are slightly less dimensionally stabl..
Polyamide PA6 rods
Polyamide 6 / Nylon rods are multifunctional thermoplastic used for structural applications and with good antifriction properties. The PA6 polyamide rods are solid, tough, and durable. Nylon Rods of polyamide PA6 are used to manufacture parts operating at high shock loads or in tribological systems. Polyamide 6 Nylon rods are often used to replace metal parts in mechanical engineering and manufacturing. Polyamide 6 rods can stand from -40°C to +100°C
Polyamide 6 rods - 20% Carbon Fibre Filled
This material is a 20% carbon fibre reinforced polyamide 6 with high flexural strength and good sliding properties. PA 6 CF20 is a 20% carbon fibre reinforced PA 6 material which fibre reinforcement provides it with increased rigidity, mechanical strength and creep strength.
Together with the lower density and lower percentage of carbon fibre filler and in addition to these properties, the carbon-filled PA6 is less abrasive com..
Polyamide 6 rods - 30% glass filled
The 30% glass filled Nylon / Polyamide 6 rods are used for applications requiring higher compressive strength and rigidity than standard unfilled Nylon. The polyamide 6 is significantly strengthened by the addition of glass-fibers.
The added glass to the polyamide rods gives them stability & rigidity but reduces the non-lubricated wear properties.
Usually, the 30% glass-filled nylon rods have almost 200% better strength than genera..
Polyamide 6 rods - Fire Resistant - FR
The Polyamide 6 rods - Fire Resistant - FR offer an improved resistance to fire and flame spread compared with unmodified polyamide (PA). They are made of Polyamide of Self-extinguishing class (class V0 acc. To UL 94) and comply with the requirements of the European Railway Standard DIN EN 45545-2: 2013, requirements set R22, R23, R24 and R26, HL1-Hl3.
This type of fire retardant PA6 does not contain halogens and phosphorus and has..
Polyamide 6 rods - Metal Detectable
The metal detectable Polyamide 6 rods are a polyamide 6 grade, which contains metal detectable additives, and has been specifically made for use in the food processing and packaging industries.
This particular polyamide modification can be easily detected by the standard metal detection equipment that is normally applied in the quality inspection process in most food industry processing facilities.
The metal detectable properties a..

(PA 66) Polyamide 66 sheets
have good rigidity, hardness, abrasion resistance and thermal dimensional stability. With respect to these particular aspects, PA66 offers certain advantages compared to PA 6. Compared to the cast types, PA 66 has higher moisture absorption. With regard to all other characteristics, PA 66 is comparable to the standard cast type PA 6 G, but more expensive.
Characteristics of Polyamide 66 sheets:
good mechanical strength
Polyamide 66 rods
The rods of Nylon 66 are made of an extruded nylon with excellent mechanical properties, stiffness, heat and wear resistance, and good resistance to creeping-but its impact strength and mechanical damping capacity are reduced. Nylon 66 rods are best suited for robotic lathes machining.
We are often asked what the difference between Rod Nylon 6.6 and Rod Nylon 6 is. Engineers tell us that the rating of Nylon 6.6 is marginally tougher, should be a little..
Polyamide 6 MoS2 sheets
Polyamide 6 MoS2 sheet comes in black color. The addition of Molybdenum Sulphide (MoS2) to PA6 results in an increase of rigidity, hardness and dimensional stability due to its nucleating effect. Conversely, the material's impact strength is reduced as a result. The additive also lends the material improved sliding friction properties.
