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

Polymer Type

Thermoplastic

Advantages

Better tensile strength, flexural modulus, heat distortion temperature and dimensional stability than unmodified PA 6/6.

Disadvantages

Lower elongation at break and notched izod impact strength than unmodified PA 6/6. Incorporation of glass fibres can cause anisotropy in mouldings.
