The benefits of Polyamide 6.6 plastic
- Higher abrasion resistance.
- It is the strongest aliphatic nylon.
- Unlike acetal, the addition of glass fiber improves stiffness considerably.
- Low-temperature toughness.
- Good fatigue resistance.
Limitations of Polyamide 6.6 plastic
- Relatively difficult to process due to exceptionally low melt viscosity.
- High water absorption, though less than PA 6.
- Post mold shrinkage.
- Weathering can cause color change and embrittlement unless suitably stabilized.
Polyamide 6.6 plastic – Specific properties
Polyamide 6.6, most typically referred to as nylon 66, is most common in textile and plastic industries. A few of the properties that make this type of plastic suitable for those two industries are:
- The resistance to toughness and chemicals.
- Good appearance.
- Thermal stability.
