Polyamide 6 - Nylon 6 - PA 6 10% Glass Fibre Reinforced

Polymer Type

Thermoplastic

Advantages

Higher tensile strength and fatigue strength, greater rigidity, better dimensional stability and lower coefficient of linear expansion than unmodified polyamide 6.

Disadvantages

Lower strain to break and notched izod impact strength than unmodified polyamide 6. Incorporation of glass can cause anisotropy in mouldings.
