Polyamide 6/12 - Nylon 6/12 - PA 6/12 10% Glass Fibre Reinforced

Polymer Type

Thermoplastic

Advantages

Higher tensile strength, flexural modulus, heat distortion temperature and low mould shrinkage

Disadvantages

Very low elongation at break compared with unmodified PA 6/12. Mechanical properties of mouldings can be anisotropic.
