Polyamide 6 - Nylon 6 - PA 6 30% Glass Fibre Reinforced

Polymer Type

Thermoplastic

Advantages

Significantly increased tensile strength, flexural modulus, HDT and dimensional stability compared with unmodified polyamide 6.

Disadvantages

Reduced notched izod impact strength and elongation at break compared with unmodified polyamide 6. Incorporation of glass fibres can produce mouldings with anisotropic mechanical properties.
