NYLON 6/6 IMPACT MODIFIED SUPERTOUGH
ZYTEL 801 NC010 SUPERTOUGH
Dupont Engineering Polymers / Supertough Nylon 6/6
Nylon 6/6 impact modified has the advantage of very high impact strength at low temperatures and enhanced resistance to heat distortion over general purpose nylon 6/6.
Impact modified 6/6 nylon is off white in color.
 
APPLICATIONS
Fasteners Bearings Gears Cams Printed Circuit Board Hardware Washers Spacers
Insulators Electronic Components Bushings Requiring additional impact resistance.
