HIGH TEMPERATURE NYLON (HTN)

Advantages

  • Low moisture absorption
  • Good high temperature properties
  • Chemical resistance

Limitations

  • Not inherently flame retardant

Overview

High temperature nylons (HTN) significantly extend the possible uses of the nylon product family through better temperature resistance and dimensional stability.

Many popular applications involve moving traditional nylon parts into areas where higher temperatures are encountered. This is made possible by the use of semicrystalline glass reinforced co-polymers. HTN bridges the gap between traditional polymers and those engineered specifically for high temperatures environments.

Documented uses of HTN include: Connectors and fittings used in distribution transformers; coil forms; encapsulated solenoids; lamp reflectors; stack insulators; fuse holders; brackets; and under-the-hood automotive applications.
