Polyamide/ABS alloy - Nylon/ABS Alloy - PA/ABS Alloy

Polymer Type

Thermoplastic

Advantages

Improved chemical resistance over ABS.  Higher elongation at break and notched izod imp[act strength than unmodified ABS or unmodified PA.

Disadvantages

Moisture absorption higher than ABS. Lower maximum operating temperature and dielectric strength than polyamide.  Lower flexural modulus, volume resistivity and dielectric strength than ABS.
