PA66+GF30 - polyamide 66 glass fiber reinforced

Compare material
Other material names PA66+GF30: Nylon 6/6 glass fiber reinforced
Material group: 

PA66+GF30 is a 30 % glass fibre reinforced PA66. It demonstrates outstanding mechanical properties such as higher strength, rigidity, creep strength and dimensional stability. Compared to unreinforced PA66, the properties of this glass filled modification GF30 make this material suitable for use in parts that are exposed to high static loads over long periods in high temperature conditions. As glass fibres tend in some cases to have a marked abrasive effect on mating surfaces, PA66+GF30 is less suitable for sliding applications.

Processing of glass-filled plastics - composites.

Such composites are known for their excellent properties, but their machining is extremely difficult. However, the other benefits of these materials are worth the effort. When machining by milling, turning or just cutting, internal stress is created more than in ordinary plastics, and the stresses occur unevenly, which can have undesirable results. Composites also cause rapid tool wear. Improper machining can generate excessive heat, which leads to cracks and delamination, making the material unusable. Coolants present additional problems. Sharp tools, their correct geometry, annealing, heating before machining, etc. can help. It is always advisable to consider the processing of composites by a professional company with experience, such as TechPlasty.
