Plastics Profiler – 40% Glass-Mineral Filled Nylon

40% Glass/Mineral Nylon is a composite material made by combining nylon resin with glass mineral fibers. This material has several benefits that make it a popular choice. AGS calls this material FPA6240-200 and uses it in a variety of applications.

Firstly, 40% Glass Mineral Nylon offers excellent strength and stiffness. The added glass mineral fibers provide superior mechanical properties, such as higher flexural modulus and impact resistance, making it ideal for applications that require high performance and durability.

Secondly, this material has excellent dimensional stability, which means it does not warp or shrink under changing environmental conditions. This makes it ideal for use in outdoor applications or environments with varying temperatures.

Thirdly, 40% Glass Mineral Nylon has a low coefficient of friction, making it ideal for applications where lubrication is difficult or impossible. It also has good wear resistance, making it suitable for use in components that experience high wear.

Fourthly, this material has good chemical resistance to a wide range of acids, bases, and solvents, making it ideal for use in applications where exposure to chemicals is a concern.

Finally, 40% Glass Mineral Nylon is an environmentally friendly material, as it can be recycled and reused, reducing waste and promoting sustainability.

In conclusion, the benefits of 40% Glass Mineral Filled Nylon make it an excellent material choice for a wide range of applications, from automotive and industrial to consumer goods and electronics.
