Polyamide 6/10 - Nylon 6/10 - PA 6/10 30% Glass Fibre Reinforced

Polymer Type

Thermoplastic

Advantages

High tensile strength, rigidity, heat distortion temperature and creep resistance combined with low mould shrinkage and good dimensional stability compared with unmodified PA 6/10.

Disadvantages

Low strain to break compared with unmodified PA 6/10. Mechanical properties are anisotropic. High melt viscosity.
