Strong construction materials as metal substitutes
As a consequence of its manufacturing process, NYLAFORCE® only absorbs moisture slowly. This ensures a high dimensional and property stability under changing environmental conditions. The tensile modulus and hence the dimensional stability of NYLAFORCE® is clearly above that of conventionally manufactured compounds.
NYLAFORCE® is ideally suited to functional engineering parts that are subject to stringent requirements on their mechanical strength and constitutes an attractive alternative to metal materials, such as aluminium, and zinc and brass alloys, in many areas.
The NYLAFORCE® A grades based on PA 6.6, in particular, are noted for their extremely high strength at high temperatures. Heat stabilised grades are thus ideal for high-strength parts subject to temperature loads, such as components in car engine compartments.
NYLAFORCE® B grades based on PA 6 display excellent behaviour under dynamic stress. Their high absorption potential for kinetic energy, coupled with exceedingly high strength values at the same time, make these engineering materials into genuine alternatives to metal. Further key properties are the excellent surface quality of the injection moulded parts and the straightforward processing.
