Extruded Nylon 30% Glass


What is the Material: Extruded Nylon 30% Glass is a semi-crystalline material filled with glass.

Key Material Features: This material is beneficial in applications requiring higher strength, rigidity, and dimensional stability, while maintaining the properties of other nylon materials including the useful mechanical properties, low friction, wear resistance, and abrasion resistance.

Other Considerations: The glass filler can be abrasive to other surfaces. Extruded nylons absorb less moisture and have a melting point about 70°F higher than cast nylon.
