This SAE Recommended Practice provides a system for classification and specification for limited number of polyamides (nylons) used in the Automotive Industry. Based upon ASTM D 4066, Classification System for Nylon Injection and Extrusion Materials (PA), it calls for additional descriptive characteristics and properties commonly used in the Automotive Industry.
This document applies to natural and non-color matched black, heat-stabilized polyamide compounds only. Color matched compounds shall be defined by the proprietary OEM standards.
This document allows for the use of recycled, reconstituted, and regrind materials provided that the requirements as stated in this document are met, the material has not been altered or modified to change its suitability for safe processing and use, and the material shall be identified as such.

The Plastics Committee applies the knowledge and experience of its volunteer membership to develop and maintain SAE Standards, Recommended Practices and Information Reports for the automotive, plastics and other related industries. The intent of these documents is to satisfy the needs of users, suppliers and vendors that are affected by these standards. Participants in the SAE Plastics Committee include OEMs, suppliers, consulting firms, government and other interested parties, and their involvement is critical in the development and maintenance of each document.
* Redlines comparisons are available for those standards listed in the Revision History that contain a radio button. A redline comparison of the current version against a revision is accomplished by selecting the radio button next to the standard and then selecting 'compare'. At this time, Redline versions only exist for some AMS standards. SAE will continue to add redline versioning with ongoing updates to SAE MOBILUS.
