IAM – Nylon6 & ASA Discovering Roboze engineering grade materials
PA6 (Nylon 6) is a polyamide characterized by high resistance to mechanical stresses. Compared to PA 12, it differs because of its higher tensile resistance, higher elongation at breaks and a slightly higher impact resistance.
ASA is a techno-polymer characterized by high stiffness and advanced hardness. Dealing with its mechanical properties, it doesn’t differ from common ABS but its physical and chemical features assure notable advantages in terms of climate resistance, yellowing and aging. ASA has also a good resistance to UV rays and high stability at high temperatures.
What is Nylon 6?
Nylon 6 is a tough, abrasion-resistant material. Highly resistant to mechanical stresses, it can’t be easily attacked by organic compounds due to its chemical resistance. Nylon 6 parts offer a good damping capability and an elevated shock-resistance when dry and in cold conditions.
What can Nylon 6 be used for?
– Automotive parts
– Electrical market
What makes Nylon 6 so useful?
– Impact and aging resistant
– Outperforming toughness and fatigue resistant
– Brilliant surface quality

What is ASA?
ASA, which is acrylonitrile styrene acrylate, is a thermoplastic developed as an alternative to ABS, infact they’re structurally very similar, however this material has improved weather, yellowing and aging resistance, as well as better resistance to enviromental stress cracking than ABS. It is mostly used in automotive and outdoor applications.
What can ASA be used for?
– Outdoor applications
– Automotive exterior applications
– Windows and Doors
– Weather and UV rays resistant
