Tranparent Polyamide - Transparent Nylon - PA Transparent Amorphous; 30% Glass Fibre Reinforced

Polymer Type

Thermoplastic

Advantages

Higher tensile strength, flexural modulus, and heat distortion temperature accompanied by lower mould shrinkage than unmodified amorphous (transparent) Polyamide.

Disadvantages

Mechanical properties of mouldings may be anisotropic. Low elongation at break and notched izod impact strength compared to unmodified amorphous (transparent) Polyamide.
