NYLENE 5143 HS
TECHNICAL DATA SHEET

 
General Description    

  • 43% glass fiber reinforced, heat stabilized nylon 6/6.
  • Has the heat and chemical resistance inherent in nylon resins, while the glass fiber reinforcement gives greatly increased strength and stiffness
  • Suitable for such applications as brackets, levers, covers, and other uses where high strength and stiffness are required
