Nylatron® 4.6 PA46
- Broadest size range availability
- Good mechanical and electrical properties
- Ideal balance of strength and toughness
- Cast as finished parts and near net shapes (nylon 6)
Offers superior heat aging and creep resistance and retention of stiffness up to 300°F. It is reddish brown in color and used where PA 6, PA 66, POM and PET fall short.
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.
