GLASS REINFORCED CAPRON™ NYLON COPOLYMERS
Wide ranges of properties are obtainable from nylons via the incorporation of various fillers or by the chemical alteration of the polymer chain. Using the latter route Capron™ Nylon Copolymers offer a high degree of flexibility and impact resistance at both low and ambient temperatures. Using several different Capron™ Copolymers as base materials, various levels of fiberglass have been incorporated resulting in high heat distortion temperatures and increased dimensional stability, coupled with improved impact resistance.
The comparison of glass reinforced Capron™ Copolymers with glass reinforced homopolymers show these unique resins to possess superior impact resistance while retaining high levels of stiffness and heat deflection.
