ArtAMID®6 modified polyamide 6 (PA6)

ArtAMID®6 Poliamide 6 is the most popular technical plastic with very good mechanical properties, relatively high work temperature and reasonable price.


  • very good tensile and flexural strength
  • very good impact strength
  • high stiffness
  • relatively high work temperature (up to 200°C)
  • very good sliding properties and abrasion resistance
  • very good surface finish even with glass fiber
  • good chemical resistance to hydrocarbons
  • PA 6 reinforced with glass fiber (>40%) is a good metal replacement


  • high water absorption
  • poor chemical resistance to strong acids and bases
  • requires drying before processing

ArtAMID® plastics contain lubricating (release) agent and antioxidants for processing stabilization. Most types can be colored in mass and subjected to following modification:

  • UV – protected against UV radiation
  • HR – protected against high temperature
