Product characteristics

Natural color
Light ivory, opaque

In addition to uncolored and black material, a series of opaque standard colors is available. Special colors are also possible.

Surface finish
High-gloss or textured, depending on mold surface

High, particularly GR grades, tensile modulus 1700 to 17 000 MPa

Impact and break resistance
High but notch-sensitive
elastomer-modified grades have good low-temperature impact strength

Resistance to dynamic loading

Stress crack resistance

Heat resistance
High; depending on grade
Short-term peaks from 160 to 210 °C (GF grades to 240 °C), permanent service temperature: 90 to 140 °C

Dimensional accuracy and stability
Good but not quite on the same level as amorphous thermoplastics

Abrasion resistance

Chemical resistance
Good; particularly resistant to fuels, lubricants, solvents and cleaning fluids

Electrical insulation Good

  • Good, dielectric strength: 20 to 35 kV/mm
  • Volume resistivity: 1013 to 1016 Ohm * cm
  • Comparative tracking index CTI: rating 175 to 600

Easy flow, rapid solidification, fast cycles

Other properties
Low moisture absorption, low surface friction
