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

Polymer Type

Thermoplastic

Advantages

Significant increase in tensile strength, flexural modulus, HDT and dimensional stability compared with unmodified polyamide 6.

Disadvantages

Reduced elongation at break and notched izod impact strength compared with unmodified polyamide 6. The incorporation of carbon fibres can produce mouldings with highly anisotropic mechanical properties and negligible electrical resistance characteristics.
