PA 6 GF30

PA – Polyamide

PA 6 GF30

PA 6 GF30 is an extruded PA 6 with a fibreglass content of 30%. Because of the fibreglass, the material has higher mechanical strength and resistance to heat than would be possible with an unmixed material that is otherwise similar. We deliver PA 6 GF30 as plastic sheets and rods.
