Effects of Temperature

Figures 4, 5 and 6 illustrate that PA12GC continues to dominate polyamids, even at higher temperatures.

PA12GC's modulus of elasticity (Fig. 4) in the most common operational range (50°F to 250°F) is about 50 % higher than E-modulus of other polyamids. The same is true for compressive strength (Fig. 5) and flexural strength (Fig. 6).
