Material: NYLON 66 SUPERTOUGH:



NYLON 6/6 IMPACT MODIFIED SUPERTOUGH
ZYTEL ST801 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.
