Cast Polyamide 6 filled Solid Lubricant is a polyamide manufactured in the monomer casting process based on PA6G, and with the addition of solid lubricants and special additives is particularly suitable for sliding applications. It complements the bearing materials product line and has maximum wear resistance and long life.
PA6G-SL has exceptionally low sliding friction coefficient. The integrated lubricants in this materials are carefully selected with a focus on the sliding properties. The balances composition of the material formula allows for a friction coefficient of 0,15 μ which is extraordinary low. Furthermore, the tendency for stick-slip is reliably reduced to a minimum.
Polyamide 6 Cast filled Solid Lubricant has an incredible homogeneous structure.
In addition to high strength the fundamental characteristics and performance of this material are of particular importance: the self-lubricating effect and the sliding characteristics remain permanently and uniformly stable throughout the lifetime. Considerably better friction and wear values are realized compared with the unfilled PA6G and the oil-filled PA6G+OIL. The combination of the properties of PA6G-SL make this material the first choice for highly loaded sliding and wear parts when lubrication of components is difficult, impossible or undesirable.
Polyamide 6 Cast filled Solid Lubrican offers the same chemical resistance of standard PA6G.
This great material is available in grey (standard), green and red.
Polyamide 6 cast filled Solid Lubricant, usually available in rods, tubes and plates, also in huge dimensions, is produced by different Companies, each one with its own commercial name. Although that, each PA6G-SL has more less the same characteristics and can easily substitute one each other.
