Polyamide 6/12 - Nylon 6/12 - PA 6/12 30% Glass Fibre Reinforced

Polymer Type

Thermoplastic

Advantages

Excellent tensile strength, creep resistance, rigidity, notched izod impact strength, heat distortion temperature combined with low coefficient of thermal expansion and mould shrinkage compared with unmodified PA 6/12.

Disadvantages

Mechanical properties of mouldings are anisotropic. Low elongation at break and high melt viscosity compared with unmodified PA 6/12.
