Material Description

PA6 Moly contains improved crystallisation and a degree of self-lubrication through the addition of molybdenum disulphide. Hardness increases and simultaneously the general mechanical and anti-friction properties are improved.

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.
