Produced since more than 50 years from an oil source (Caprolactam), PA6 is a techno-polymer used for less stringent applications where a good compromise price / property is required.

Main properties are:

  • Good mechanical properties
  • Mediocre dimensional stability (especially in humid environment compared to PA12)
  • High pressure resistance
  • Good ageing behaviour
  • Good chemical resistance

PA6 properties are suitable for hobby coils, packaging films, corrugated tubes with the best ratio performance/price.
Tubes made in PA6 are marked C.SIX.
