Offers superior heat aging and creep resistance and retention of stiffness up to 300°F. It is reddish brown in color and used where PA 6, PA 66, POM and PET fall short.
Nylons can absorb up to 7% (by weight) water under high humidity or submerged in water. This can result in dimensional changes up to 2% and a corresponding reduction of physical properties. Proper design techniques can frequently compensate for this factor.
