Extruded Nylon 6/6 (polyhexamethylene adiptimide) is a moldable and extrudeable general-purpose nylon. Like Cast Nylon 6, it has good mechanical properties and wear resistance. Nylon 6/6 has a much higher melting point, better mechanical properties due to greater hardness, and lower water absorption than cast nylon. Because of its excellent balance of strength, ductility and heat resistance, nylon 6/6 is an outstanding candidate for metal replacement applications. Nylon 6/6 is very easy to process with a very wide process window. This allows it to be used for everything from complex, thin walled components to large thick walled housings.

Nylon 6/6 is very easy to modify with fillers, fibers, internal lubricants, and impact modifiers. The addition of internal lubricants improves on the already excellent wear resistance and friction properties of nylon 6/6. Solid lubricant additives impart self-lubricating, high pressure/velocity and superior wear resistance characteristics. This material is a type 6/6 extruded nylon compound with special additives offering superior bearing properties. It is recommended for applications where, in addition to superior bearing performance, other traditional 6/6 nylon properties also are desired.

A large number of formulations for nylon, i.e., glass-filled, Kevlar® filled, and molybdenum-disulfide filled grades, and variants within these grades such as FDA compliant, heat stabilized, impact modified are available to match specific application demands.
