Description

Reinforced Polyamide 12 with 30% glass fiber. It is long-chain, semi-crystalline polyamides absorb little water, are resistant to polar and non-polar solvents, exhibit low creep behavior and high impact resistance and can be used in a wide temperature range. Virtually no other polymer material in this price range exhibits these properties.
