Technical Product Data Sheets

Nylon 6/6
Nylon 6/6 GF-30 (30% glass-fiber reinforced)

All NYLON 6/6 materials have high mechanical strength and superior resistance to wear and organic chemicals. NYLON 6/6 GF30 has more than double the strength and stiffness of unreinforced nylons and a heat deflection temperature which approaches its melting point. NYLON 6/6 is a 30% glass-fiber-reinforced nylon 6/6 material whose important properties include high tensile and flexural strength, stiffness, excellent heat deflection temperature, and superior abrasion and wear resistance.
