Sustamid® 6G Nylon

Sustamid® 6G Nylon

The casting process used to manufacture SUSTAMID® 6G produces in a high-molecular and highly crystalline polyamide type 6 material with outstanding physical properties.  PA6 G has similar mechanical properties and chemical resistance to a standard Nylon 66.  Stock shapes are available in sheet, rod or tube form in a wide selection of sizes.


  • Good sliding properties
  • Extremely high abrasion resistance
  • High mechanical strength coupled with high impact strength
  • Excellent machinability
  • High mechanical damping ability
  • Working temperature range of -40°C to 110°C continuous.
  • Good adhesive properties
  • Good weld ability
  • EU & FDA approved for direct food contact applications
  • High absorption of moisture (of up to 3 % in standard atmosphere) results in increased impact resistance.

Please note: In thin-walled parts, reduced mechanical strength and dimensional stability


Sustamid® is frequently used as a substitute for aluminium, brass or bronze. Used for a wide range of industrial components both for original equipment manufacture and maintenance.

  • Mechanical engineering: e.g. sliding parts, rollers, bushes, slide bearings, wear pads, support and guide wheels, sprockets tension rollers.
  • Offshore: e.g. bogies, cable winches, sheaves
  • Vehicle construction: e.g. sliding parts, hoisting gear, rope pulleys
  • Foodstuffs industry: e.g. sliding parts, conveyor stars wheels, spiral conveyors, feed screws
