Like all polyamides, it absorbs or emits moisture.
The moisture acts as a plasticizer and lowers the tensile strength, creep resistance, and rigidity while increasing the impact strength and component dimensions.
The electrical properties are strongly influenced by the moisture content.
The length extension varies with temperature and moisture content.
The polyamides are attacked by strong mineral acids and acetic acid; they are dissolved by phenols. Some types are attacked by formic acid.
Polyamide 6G MoS² plastic – Specific properties
Polyamide 6G MoS² plastic, best known as PA 6G MoS², is a cast polyamide that contains MoS² as a lubricant. This plastic material has good shock-absorption properties, exhibits good sliding characteristics in dry conditions, and has excellent hardness and elongation properties.
Good resistance to wear.
Good absorption of mechanical vibration.
Good elongation-related and impact-resistance properties.
