Polyamide 6.10 PA610
INTRODUCTION TO POLYAMIDE 6.10
Polyamide 6.10 is a semicrystalline polymer and belongs to the family of Nylons. Compared to the other polyamides, its moisture absorption is relatively low, thus retaining its properties better when wet. However, melting point of Polyamide 6.10 is lower than with PA6 or PA66.
Polyamide 6.10 derives from hexamethylene diamine and sebacic acid by polycondensation, making PA6.10 partly more ecological than other plastics due to the origin of sebacic acid, which is the castor-oil plant.
Polyamide 6.10 is commonly used in brushes (paint brushes, tooth brushes, ...) and molded plastic items.
