polimero poliammide granulo rosso MEBRA
POLIAMMIDE

Nylon PA 6

Description

Polyamide 6 is a polymer from an extremely versatile petrochemical origin. It is inexpensive and offers easy workability, good chemical resistance to fats, hydrocarbons, lubricant oils, etc. It has lower resistance to acids, bases, oxidizing reagents, and saline solutions. Polyamide 6 exhibits water absorption values of up to 10%. The moisture on the inside of the polyamide acts as a plasticizer, causing the mechanics to vary on the basis of the quantity absorbed. Increased absorbed moisture improves the tenacity and the resilience of the material (impact resistance) with a resulting reduction of the Elastic Modulus and the rigidity of the material. Polyamide 6 exhibits good thermal properties and resistance to ageing at high temperatures. Particular attention should be paid to the dimensional variation based on the absorption of moisture.

Typologies
The heart of our production is extrusion and with this process we generate wounded linear tubes or straight cut pieces of tube. With further processing, we produce other types of products and we finally combine accessories and other items to complete the range.

Single, flexible, non-thermoformed tube, wrapped in coils of various lengths.

PRO:

  • small footprint;
  • long distances seamless.

VERSUS:

  • elastic memory of the winding;
  • tolerance on the cut of +/- 2% of the length.

Single extruded tube or spiral thermoformed multi-tube.

PRO

  • compact dimensions;
  • elastic memory of return of the tube to the original compact position;
  • if purchased already connected, quick installation.
