NYCAST GF-30%
(Fiberglass Reinforced Nylon)

Nycast GF-30% offers improved tensile, compressive and flexural properties over conventional unfilled Nycast grades. Nycast GF-30% provides increased load bearing characteristics and is the choice in applications where added stiffness, rigidity and dimensional stability is required.
