Polyamide 6 - Nylon 6 - PA 6 60% Glass Fibre Reinforced

Polymer Type

Thermoplastic

Advantages

Much greater stiffness and tensile strength, improved heat distortion temperature, mould shrinkage and linear expansion compared with unmodified Polyamide 6.

Disadvantages

Significant reduction in strain at break and reduced notched izod impact strength compared with unmodified Polyamide 6. Incorporation of 60% glass fibre can cause significant anisotropy in mouldings.
