Also known as Nylon 66, Polyamide 66 and Poly (hexamethylene adipamide), PA66 is a semi crystalline-crystalline material which has a very high melting point. It maintains its stiffness and strength at elevated temperatures. After moulding, it absorbs moisture which can affect its properties and dimensional stability which should be considered in the design. It is particularly useful for moulding thin components as it has a low viscosity and so flows freely. It has a shrinkage of 1-2-percent and resists most solvents except oxidizing agents and strong acids.
