PA 6 G OIL

PA – Polyamide

PA 6 G OIL

PA 6 G OIL is a cast polyamide that contains oil as a lubricant. Because of its oil content, the material’s coefficient of friction is up to 50% lower and its wear‑resistance about five times greater than that of standard polyamides. This polyamide is best suited to applications in which the material is subjected to continuous wear.
