Family of High Modulus (HMG) Nylon Based Plastics Increases Mileage and Reduce Weight 2001-01-3423
Resent developments were oriented on two high-flow, high-modulus grades fiber-glass reinforced nylon 6 (HMG series) grades for transportation, autos and other industrial applications requiring high stiffness, high strength and high fatigue resistance. These materials combined the following improved technological (injection molding, vibration and hot plate welding, etc.) and mechanical performance properties such as greater dimensional stability, higher short-term (strength and stiffness) and long-term (fatigue and creep with the influence of temperature effects).
Both HMG series grades Capron®1 HMG10 and Capron® HMG13 - are for injection molded parts where stiffness, strength, impact resistance, and good surface and improved appearance are preferred. The current and possible applications of these plastics includes auto mirror housing brackets, clutch pedals, clutch master cylinders, ski bindings, steering wheels, levers, auto seat frames, door handles and door lock mechanisms.
