TECAMID GF30 - 30% Glass reinforced

TECAMID® 6/6 GF30 is a 30% glass-fiber reinforced nylon 6/6 material whose important properties include high tensile and flexural strength, stiffness, excellent heat deflection temperature, and superior abrasion and wear resistance. While all TECAMID® materials have high mechanical strength and superior resistance to wear and organic chemicals, TECAMID® 6/6 GF30 has more than double the strength and stiffness of unreinforced nylons and a heat deflection temperature which approaches its melting point.

  • Superior organic chemical resistance
    TECAMID® nylons are resistant to most organic solvents.
  • High heat deflection temperature
    At 66 psi, TECAMID® 6/6 GF30 has a HDT of 490®F. Even at 264 psi, the HDT is in excess of 480®F.
  • Excellent wear resistance
    TECAMID® 6/6 GF30 has a wear rate approaching that of internally lubricated bearing materials. Additionally, the reinforcing glass fibers give this extruded nylon excellent abrasion and cut resistance.
  • Very good fatigue endurance
    TECAMID® 6/6 GF30 has been successfully used in gears at high stress levels for many years.
  • Superior creep resistance

TECAMID® 6/6 GF30 has an excellent balance of properties which make it an ideal material for metal replacement in applications such as automotive parts, industrial valves, railway tie insulators, and other industry uses whose design requirements include high strength, toughness, and weight reduction.
