Polyamide 6/6 - Nylon 6/6 - PA 6/6 60% Glass Fibre Reinforced

Polymer Type

Thermoplastic

Advantages

Significantly better tensile strength, stiffness, hardness, dimensional stability, and abrasion resistance and heat deflection temperature than unmodified polyamide 6/6 plastics.

Disadvantages

Depending on processing conditions, properties may be highly anisotropic. Significantly lower elongation at break compared with unmodified polyamide 6/6 plastics.
