This unmodified cast nylon 6 grade exhibiting characteristics which come very close to those of Ertalon 66 SA. It combines high strength, stiffness and hardness with good creep and wear resistance, heat aging properties and machinability.
Nylons can absorb up to 7% (by weight) water under high humidity or submerged in water. This can result in dimensional changes up to 2% and a corresponding reduction of physical properties. Proper design techniques can frequently compensate for this factor.
