PA 6.6 + PE

PA – Polyamide

PA 6.6 + PE

PA 6.6 + PE is a PA 6.6 to which solid lubricants have been added. The additive makes the material self-lubricating and therefore suitable for applications in which the material is subjected to high wear. We deliver PA 6.6 + PE as plastic sheets, rods and as hollow rods.
