Description

It is a 30% glass fiber reinforced polyamide-imide (PAI, engineering plastic). It has high strength, elastic modulus and creep resistance. It has thermal expansion behaviour similar to aluminum and therefore excellent dimensional stability. It has the highest strength among other thermoplastics up to 275°C. It has outstanding wear, creep and chemical resistance. The machanical properties makes it a candidate for metal replacement in high temperatures and high stress applications. It has perfect electrical properties which makes it suitable for high preformance parts such as connectors and relays.
