Polyamide 6 - Nylon 6 - PA 6 Stampable Sheet; Glass Fibre Reinforced

Polymer Type

Thermoplastic

Advantages

Significantly improved tensile strength, water absorption, flexural modulus and notched izod impact strength when compared with unmodified polyamide 6.

Disadvantages

Reduced elongation at break when compared with polyamide 6. Semi finished product, not melt processable.
