Polyamide 6 - Nylon 6 - PA 6 30% Glass Fibre Reinforced; Fire Retardant

Polymer Type

Thermoplastic

Advantages

Improved stiffness and strength, accompanied with good flame retardants (VO) and higher heat distortion temperature, and lower mould shrinkage than unmodified polyamide 6.

Disadvantages

Significantly reduced elongation at break and lower notched izod impact strength than unmodified Polyamide 6. Incorporation of glass fibre can cause anisotropy in mouldings. Not recommended for use if reground.
