PA6 Neat Black

High temperature polyamide

Filament Spectrum PA6 Neat BK is a new, high-temperature PA6-based construction material in black colour. A major feature of the PA6 Neat is its increased mechanical strength as compared to other plastics. The material also features exceptional thermal properties, chemical resistance to oils and lubricants, relatively high resistance to corrosion stimulators and good electrical insulation properties as compared to unmodified PA6 or PA66.

Parts made of Spectrum PA6 Neat BK allow for long-term operation at elevated temperatures up to 120°C (20.000h) and up to 160°C for a short-time operation (max. 200h), while maintaining sufficient mechanical properties. Filament PA6 Neat is characterized by a low linear processing shrinkage (0.3%) and a reduced water absorption (<0.3%, 23 ° C / 24h). The above features make it an excellent filament for a professional user to make solid prints.

To attain the very attractive properties of PA6 Neat BK, as regards the technical aspects, you need to follow the basic storage rules for such materials (in a dry and dark place with humidity below 15%). To obtain the best parameters of the printed object possible, it is recommended to dry the material prior to work.
