Plastic Design International is a premier provider of injection molding services. Our advanced high-tonnage injection molding equipment works well with nearly all common polymers and plastics used in injection molding. Our comprehensive job shop gives us additional value-added capabilities that enable us to handle orders in any volume.
For injection-molded parts that require exceptional rigidity and strength, we offer glass-filled nylon as a material option. While this material can sometimes be challenging to work with, Plastic Design International has developed and sustained excellent technical competency with glass-filled nylon for injection molding.
Properties of Glass Filled Nylon
Pure nylon fails to withstand heat and UV light, so it is often modified in various ways to improve specific properties. Adding glass fibers to the nylon produces beneficial properties such as:
- Increased rigidity
- Improved hardness
- Superior tensile strength
- Increased creep strength
- Greater dimensional stability
- High mechanical damping
