Extruded NYLON 6 [ERTALON® 6SA] & NYLON 6.6 [ERTALON® 66SA]

 

Within the Polyamides (P.A.), commonly referred to as "Nylons", we distinguish different types. The most important ones are: PA 6, PA 66, PA 11 and PA 12. The classification of these types is made according to the number of carbon atoms contained in the elementary structure between the nitrogen atoms. For example Nylon 6 (PA 6) with six carbon atoms and Nylon 6.6 (PA 66) with two groups of six etc. Please note PA 11 and PA 12 are not readily available in semi-finished (rod, sheet, plate, tube) forms.

Quadrant EPP brand their Nylon products ERTALON®

NYLON 6 (ERTALON® 6SA) EXTRUDED Natural

This material offers an optimal combination of mechanical strength, stiffness, toughness, mechanical damping properties and wear resistance. These properties, together with a favourable electrical insulating ability, and good chemical resistance make Nylon 6 a "general purpose" grade for mechanical construction and maintenance applications.

NYLON 66 (ERTALON® 66SA) EXTRUDED Natural

Has a higher mechanical strength, stiffness, heat and wear resistance than extruded Nylon 6. It also has a better creep resistance but its impact strength and mechanical damping ability is reduced. Nylon 6.6 is well suited for machining on automatic lathes.

Please note that the ERTALON® 66SA natural rods lager than 150mm diameter are manufactured from a modified polyamide 66 resin and are designated ERTALON® 66SA-C
