TECAMID 66 GF15 FR black

Flame retardant pa 66 glass filled for aircraft

TECAMID 66 GF15 FR black is a specially formulated glass filled 66 nylon plastic designed for use in aircraft design when additional stiffness and strength might be required in a given aircraft aerospace material application. This PA66 plastic has been tested to and passed the requirements for FAR 25.853 for aircraft interior materials, and could be considered as a more cost effective option than some other higher performance materials such as PEEK or PPS. The fiber reinforced material's favorable flame and smoke generation characteristics demonstrated in independent flammability tests make it suitable for structural support applications in aircraft interior spaces.
