PA6 (Polyamide) is a thermoplastic based on cast polyamide. Has excellent hardness and elasticity parameters. Therefore, it is often used in the manufacture of guide, back-up and support elements in the combined profiles of seals and rings, where the high degree of sliding is required. Considering the low performance in moisture resistance, it is not recommended to apply PA6 in media saturated with water.
