Tislamid® 6 is the registered trade mark for Polyamide 6 compounds produced by Tisan.
Tislamid® 6 ensures a high impact resistance and excellent mechanical properties of the material. Combining mineral fillers and glass fiber in production has proved to be a highly successful development. It results in valuable material properties like extreme rigidity and stiffness, high dimensional stability and minimal warpage. These qualities are most important when manufacturing large surface area.
Tislamid® 6 product family includes a wide range of viscosity number and glass fiber reinforced, UV / light resistant, impact modified, laser markable, heat-stabilised, mineral filled, flame-retarded various type of additives.
Tislamid® 6, formulations can also be developed to meet specific market needs.
Tislamid® 6 is a fully recyclable material and it can be reused after regrinding.
The user shall always verify that the compound obtained by mixing virgin and reground material is suitable for the specific application and that its properties meet the requirements.
Tislamid® 6 grades can be provided fully colored in customized colors with narrow color specificationsc colorability even in light colors.
Modification of PA6 by compounding with glass fiber, mineral fillers and other modifying additives produces a substantial change in the properties of the base material and gives to compositions based on Tislamid® 6 the following properties:
High stiffness, strength and temperature resistance, excellent impact resistance and toughness at low and high temperatures, high dynamic strength, very good abrasion resistance, hydrolytic stability (special grades), excellent chemical resistance, highest stress resistance, even at cold temperatures, high wear and fatigue resistance even at high temperatures, good electrical properties, easy processability. Flame retardant compound with halogen and halogen free, UL94 V-2 or V-0 classifications (UL approved grades), glow wire flammability index, glow wire ignition behavior (no flame), low smoke density and toxicity.
Fillers / reinforcements / modifiers
Glass fibers-glass beads-carbon fibers-aramid fibers-mineral fillers are available with varying contents in different combinations. And also filled materials containing PTFE and molybdenum disulphide are available for bearing materials with appropriately low friction and improved wear. Heat stabilizers-hydrolysis stabilizers-lubricants-UV stabilizers, electrical conductive etc. are being used in non-reinforced and reinforced grades to increase specific material properties.
