TECAMID 6 MO black

PA 6 MO black

The addition of molybdenum disulphide (MoS2) to PA6 results in an increase of rigidity, hardness and dimensional stability due to its nucleating effect. Conversely, the material's impact strength is reduced as a result. The additive also lends this modified polyamide material improved sliding friction properties and abrasion resistance. Due to its black colour, this universal grade PA 6 is well suited for outdoor use and offers improved UV resistance.
