Polyamide 6/6 - Nylon 6/6 - PA 6/6 Glass Fibre and Bead Reinforced

Polymer Type

Thermoplastic

Advantages

Good balance of rigidity, tensile strength and heat distortion temperature together with minimal distortion of moulding when compared to unmodified polyamide 6/6.

Disadvantages

Lower tensile strength, rigidity and impact strength compared to polyamide 6/6 grades with same level of glass fibre content.
