Omniamid 6G (Cast Nylon Natural)

  • Very good wear resistance, even in demanding environments
  • It is slightly tougher and harder than the extruded nylon 6
  • Like all nylons it is hygroscopic (absorbs moisture) so it has poor dimensional stability

Cast Nylon Black

Omniamid HR (Cast Nylon Black)

  • The addition of graphite and special lubricant results in properties better than those of the above natural PA6G
  • Lower friction coefficient and higher shock resistance
  • Applications include large gears, pulleys, sheaves, wheels, rollers, sliding blocks, guides. Resistant to alkali, solvents and inorganic compounds

 

 

Omniamid OIL (Oil-filled Nylon - Yellow)

  • Contains 6% special lubricating oil
  • The unique method of production results in micro distribution of the oil particles which is homogenous
  • Low friction coefficient
  • Higher shock resistance and better wear properties

Cast Nylon Black - Omniamid HR

Akulon 6® (Nylon 6)

  • Extruded nylon offers a combination of mechanical strength, stiffness, toughness and wear resistance
  • Omnia Plastica use a high viscosity polymer which results in a product of outstanding quality
  • Natural nylon 6 is Food Safe

Akulon 6GF30® (Nylon 6 + 30% Glass)

  • Glass-filled nylon has better dimensional stability than standard Nylon 6
  • Excellent mechanical properties
  • High compression strength
  • Black colour

Akulon 66® (Nylon 66)

  • Nylon 66 is more rigid/harder than Nylon 6
  • Much easier to machine than Nylon 6 on Swiss & Cam automatics
Omniamid HR (Cast Nylon Black)

Arnite® (PETP)

  • Low friction coefficient. High mechanical strength, stiffness and hardness with good creep resistance
  • Excellent wear resistance (equal to nylon 6)
  • Better resistance to acids than nylon and acetal
  • Excellent bearing & bushing material
  • Like acetal it is very easy to machine
  • Arnite® is Food Safe
