Availability Global

Velocity® LGF50-PA6 is a 50% long glass fiber reinforced high flow nylon 6 (polyamide 6) thermoplastic composite manufactured using a pultrusion process that melt impregnates the fiber with the matrix resin to maximize performance. Long glass fiber reinforcement provides this composite with increased stiffness, strength, and durability. The high flow characteristics of the polymer make this composite easier to process, especially in thin wall sections, and improve the surface appearance of molded components. This composite’s mechanical properties allow its use in a wide range of applications across multiple market segments as a lightweight replacement for metals or as an engineered substitute for other materials.
