Nylon 6,10 (PA6,10)

Shakespeare® PA610 is approximately 60% bio based as it is derived from castor oil. While this polyamide is commonly used in production of monofilament bristles due to improved bend recovery in wet environments, the combination of stiffness, abrasion resistance, low moisture absorption, chemical resistance and good dimensional stability makes Shakespeare® PA610 suitable for a wide array of precision extruded and molded applications.
