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

Polymer Type

Thermoplastic

Advantages

Higher tensile strength, flexural modulus, dimensional stability and heat distortion temperature than unmodified PA 6/10.

Disadvantages

Very low elongation at break and reduced notched izod impact strength compared with unmodified PA 6/10. Mechanical properties of mouldings can be anisotropic.
