35% Glass Fiber Reinforced PA is a subcategory of Polyamide. The additative is added by weight during the manufacturing process. Its tensile strength ranges from 30500 to 31000 MPa at break. Its elongation at break ranges from 2.2 to 2.4 %. Its coefficient of thermal expansion ranges from 15 to 48 x 10-6/°C. Its molding pressure ranges from 5 to 20 MPa.
Polyamide, also known as PA, is a thermoplastic polycondensate. Common trade names are Ultramid and Zytel. nylon (PA 6), semi-aromatic semicrystalline copolymer It has high lubricity and moderate strength. It is tough, inexpensive, but has poor dimensional stability due to water absorption (hygroscopic nature). PA is commonly used to make high-lubricity parts such as bearings, blow moldings molds, and clothing fabrics.
