Improved Cystallisation

Molybdenum Disulphide is added resulting in improved crystallisation. This process increases the superficial hardness of the material, improving its anti-friction & dimensional stability properties.

Suitable for High Operating Temperatures

The crystal structure of PA6 Moly breaks down immediately before the melting temperature is reached, the thermal properties of the Moly are improved over standard PA6 grade. To learn more view the product technical information.

Excellent Machining Properties

The increased superficial hardness provides Moly with excellent machinability and general mechanical properties.

POM-C (Acetal)
POM-C (Acetal)
POM-C otherwise known as Acetal Copolymer features highly crystalline resins, making this material strong and rigid, with a low coefficient of friction in comparison to metals and other plastics. POM-C is also creep resistant and is recommended for applications where dimensional stability is important.
