HEAT STABILIZED UNREINFORCED NYLON 46 - TE 341
STANYL TE 341
DSM Engineering Plastics - Stanyl Heat Stabilized Unreinforced Nylon 46 - TE 341
High temperature nylon, which bridges the price performance gap between traditional nylons and high performance materials. Nylon 46 has excellent short and long term heat resistance, high stiffness at elevated temperatures, high creep resistance, outstanding toughness, excellent fatigue behavior, good chemical resistance, and higher continuous-use temperature. Nylon 46 is translucent off white in color.
