NYLON 6/6 25% GLASSFILLED FLAME RETARDANT
DUPONT 25% GLASS-FIBER REINFORCED FLAME RETARDANT NYLON 6/6 - ZYTEL FR-50
ZYTEL FR50 NC010 (Dry)
DuPont Engineering Polymers / Americas - Polymide 66
Glassfilled flame retardant nylon 6/6 has similar properties to glassfilled nylon 6/6 with flame retardant
additives for UL94V0 rating. Flame retardant glassfillled nylon is light brown in color.
 
APPLICATIONS
Fasteners - Printed Circuit Board Hardware - Washers -Spacers - Insulators -
Requiring greater stiffness and strength with the addition of flame retardant properties.
