PA 6 G MoS²

PA – Polyamide

PA 6 G MoS²

PA 6 G MoS² is a cast polyamide that contains MoS2 as a lubricant. In addition to its good shock-absorption properties, the material also exhibits good sliding characteristics in dry conditions. PA 6 G + MoS2 is also weather‑resistant and has excellent hardness and elongation properties. We deliver PA 6 G MoS² as plastic sheets, rods and hollow rods.
