Description

It is a 30% carbon-fiber reinforced grade of polyamide-imide (PAI) resin. Its key features include:


  • It offers high strength and modulus.
  • Exceptional creep resistance, and good fatigue resistance.
  • It has thermal expansion characteristics similar to steel, and therefore excellent dimensional stability.
  • This product has the highest strength and stiffness of any thermoplastic up to 275°C (525°F).
  • It has outstanding resistance to wear and chemicals.
  • This material data has been provided by M-Base.

    All metrics apply to room temperature unless otherwise stated. SI units used unless otherwise stated.
    Equivalent standards are similar to one or more standards provided by the supplier. Some equivalent standards may be stricter whereas others may be outside the bounds of the original standard.
