Polyamide 6/6 - Nylon 6/6 - PA 6/6 Super-Tough; 33% Glass Fibre Reinforced

Polymer Type

Thermoplastic

Advantages

Increased rigidity and tensile strength compared with unmodified polyamide 6/6.

Disadvantages

Uneven surface appearance. Components can have anisotropic properties if not moulded carefully. Reduced elongation at break and maximum operating temperature compared with unmodified polyamide 6/6.
