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

Polymer Type

Thermoplastic

Advantages

Good tensile strength, flexural modulus, dimensional stability, friction and wear properties compared with unmodified polyamide 6/6 plastics. High values of thermal and electrical conductivity (could relate to a disadvantage).

Disadvantages

Mouldings may have anisotropic properties. Poor electrical resistance with significant reduction in elongation at break. Are expensive compared with unmodified polyamide 6/6 plastics.
