David Nguyen, Mechanical Engineering Lead
Polyamide 6 (Nylon 6) is widely used engineering thermoplastic characterized by its high toughness and strength. It provides parts with good damping characteristics as well as high shock resistance in both dry state and low temperatures. PA6 is distinguished by its particularly high impact resistance and machinability.
