High Tensile Strength Plastic

High Tensile Strength Plastic

High Tensile Strength Plastic

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


RE: High Tensile Strength Plastic

Glass fiber fill and to a greater extent carbon fiber fill make large increases in base polymer tensile strengths.

RE: High Tensile Strength Plastic

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!


Politicians like to panic, they need activity. It is their substitute for achievement.
