Nylon PA6

For everyone Nylon PA6

Spectrum PA 6 Low Warp is an extremely durable construction material based on polycaprolactam improved with admixtures to reduce the high shrinkage inherent to the processing of such materials. A major feature of the polyamide is its increased mechanical strength as compared to other plastics. The material also features exceptional thermal properties, chemical resistance and a relatively high resistance to corrosion stimulators. To attain the very attractive properties of Spectrum PA 6 Low Warp, as regards the technical aspects, you need to follow the basic storage rules for such materials (in a dry and dark place with humidity below 15%). To obtain the best parameters of the printed object possible, it is recommended to dry the material prior to work. The Spectrum Filaments PA6 Low Warp belongs to the few materials with low processing shrinkage, approx. 0.3%.

    Nylon PA6 advantage
  • exceptionally low processing shrinkage of 0.3%
  • high temperature and abrasion resistance
  • easy separation of the object from the bed
  • high mechanical strength
  • chemical resistance to lubricants and oils
  • a wide range of applications
  • very robust lamination of layers
Elements produced by using Spectrum Nylon PA6 are characterized by:
  • a high creep resistance, high hardness and rigidity of the printed items,
  • a very wide temperature range for prolonged operation as well as a very high temperature up to 150°C for short-time operation,
  • a relatively high resistance to thermal ageing,
  • good tribological properties, including dry friction conditions such as in slide bearing,
  • a good impact resistance and vibration dampening capabilities,
  • an unusually good adhesion to 3D printer build platforms as compared to other PA6-based filaments on the market,
  • a very high adhesion between layers, which minimises the risk of delamination between the layers of printed items.
The very good mechanical properties of the polyamide Spectrum PA6 Low Warp provide for a wide range of mostly industrial applications. It is mainly used in the production of gear wheels and racks, slide bearings, sweep-off gears and guide rolls operated in elevated temperatures up to 100°C on a prolonged basis and up to 150°C on a short-time basis. It is also used for all types of ring and plate seals with an increased chemical and corrosion resistance.
