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

Polymer Type

Thermoplastic

Advantages

Compared with unmodified PA 6/12 this material has excellent creep resistance, extremely high tensile strength and modulus. Improved notched izod impact strength, excellent heat distortion temperature, combined with a lower coefficient of friction, low linear thermal expansion and low water absorption.

Disadvantages

Very expensive. Low elongation at break. Mechanical properties depend on alignment of fibres. High melt viscosity.
