Akulon® polyamides represent the most versatile, well-rounded property profiles of any engineering plastics. It is the ideal material for high performance applications. Robustness, stiffness and high temperature capability make it highly suitable for automotive, electrical and demanding mechanical engineering applications.
For molded parts, they offer an excellent balance of easy design and processing with outstanding mechanical properties over a wide temperature range and in diverse operating environments.
Main characteristics of Akulon® PA66 are:
- Resistance to aging at high temperatures and over long time periods.
- High strength and high stiffness, even under elevated temperatures.
- Inherent ignition resistance.
- Excellent di-electrical properties.
- Good abrasion resistance.
- Outstanding chemical resistance.
- Water absorption
- Excellent cost/performance balance.
- Hydrolysis resistance.
