Ensinger/PennFibre has expanded its thermoformable nylon sheet product line with Pennite 4512, a nylon 6 with 12 percent glass-fiber reinforcement and thermal and impact modifiers.
The company claims the new sheet is a higher-performance product than Pennite 4508, introduced last year. Pennite 4512 has enhanced heat-deflection temperature, greater elongation and higher tensile and flexural strength. Other properties include high resistance to chemicals and permeability and good melt strength for thermoforming.
The Washington, Pa., firm said the sheet is a cost-effective replacement for metal and is especially well-suited for automotive applications such as ducts, shrouds, covers and structural components.
