High Tensile Strength Plastic High Tensile Strength Plastic chopper75 (Aerospace) (OP) 1 Feb 18 20:47 I am looking for a plastic with very high tensile strength for a threading application (8-32 thread). Can anyone recommend something? RE: High Tensile Strength Plastic btrueblood (Mechanical) 1 Feb 18 23:03 PEEK. RE: High Tensile Strength Plastic dgallup (Automotive) 2 Feb 18 19:17 Glass fiber fill and to a greater extent carbon fiber fill make large increases in base polymer tensile strengths. ---------------------------------------- The Help for this program was created in Windows Help format, which depends on a feature that isn't included in this version of Windows. RE: High Tensile Strength Plastic Pud (Mechanical) 3 Feb 18 20:44 Amongst high tensile materials are the partially aromatic nylon type and alloys of such. Trade names include, but not limited to: Ixef, Grivory, Amodel and ZytelHTN. All will have a 50% or more fibre reinforcement. Note that cutting a thread will seriously reduce the specified strength as these materials are usually notch sensitive. Quoted values are derived from an ideal test bar moulded under ideal conditions and rarely reflect real world applications! www.tynevalleyplastics.co.uk Politicians like to panic, they need activity. It is their substitute for achievement.
