Glass-filled Nylon is great for functional parts that require strength and rigidity.
Glass-filled nylon, also known as glass-reinforced nylon, is a composite material that combines nylon resin with glass fibers. The addition of glass fibers significantly enhances the mechanical properties of nylon, making it stronger, stiffer, and more heat-resistant. Glass-filled nylon is commonly used in applications that require high strength and dimensional stability, such as automotive parts, industrial components, and electrical enclosures.
|Tensile strength||70 - 160 MPa|
|Tensile modulus||3000 - 8000 MPa|
|Tensile elongation||2 - 8%|
|Flexural strength||100 - 250 MPa|
|Flexural modulus||3000 - 10000 MPa|
|HDT (0.45 MPa)||80 - 150°C|
These values represent typical ranges for the technical properties of glass-filled nylon. However, it's important to note that the exact values may vary depending on the specific grade, manufacturer, and fiber loading percentage. The addition of glass fibers can be customized to achieve different levels of reinforcement and mechanical properties.
