Polyamide 12 - Nylon 12 - PA 12 50% Glass Bead Filled

Polymer Type

Thermoplastic

Advantages

Superior compressive strength, improved heat distortion temperature, tensile strength and modulus compared with unmodified PA 12. Easy to process compared to glass fibre filled grades. Exhibits uniform and predictable shrinkage with improved warpage. Mechanical properties are also more isotropic than for glass fibre filled grades. Glass tends to improve self

Disadvantages

Heat distortion temperature, tensile strength and modulus are not as high as for glass fibre reinforced grades.
