Polyamide 6/6 - Nylon 6/6 - PA 6/6 - 33% Glass Fibre Reinforced

Polymer Type

Thermoplastic

Advantages

Excellent strength, rigidity, hardness, HDT, abrasion resistance and good dimensional stability compared with unmodified grades of Nylon 6/6. Even better strength, rigidity and impact resistance available with long fibre reinforcement.

Disadvantages

Properties, including mould shrinkage can be anisotropic. Low elongation at break compared with unmodified polyamide 6/6.
