TECANYL GF30 natural

PPE filled with 30% glass fibres

PPE GF30 is a special 30% glass fibre reinforced product which is manufactured by Ensinger under the trade name TECANYL GF30. In comparison to unfilled TECANYL, the glass filled modification demonstrates optimized properties in a number of areas. It has a high rigidity, high mechanical strength, high creep strength and a high compressive strength. Finally, glass fibre reinforced PPE GF30 has a very high dimensional stability. As glass fibres tend in some cases to have a marked abrasive effect on mating surfaces, TECANYL GF30 is less suitable for sliding applications. Due to its high dimensional stability, low thermal expansion, and high heat deflection temperature, this glass filled PPE is very well suited for precision and electrical insulating parts.
