Vydyne R533 series resins have tensile strength and modulus properties just below aluminum and zinc and can replace these metals in numerous applications due to an excellent balance of properties. Reduction in production costs, energy consumption and part weight are key advantages of Vydyne glass reinforced nylon 6,6 resins over aluminum and/or zinc die cast parts.
Vydyne R533 series is a heat stabilized grade, formulated to minimize the oxidative and thermal degradation of the nylon polymer when exposed to elevated temperatures for extended periods of time. Vydyne R533H provides improved retention of physical properties under exposure to long-term heat. The continuous operating use temperature is 275°F and short-term peak temperatures as high as 475°F.
Application End Uses
Vydyne R533 series of resins have been used for many under-the-hood automotive applications, motor housings for power tools and garden appliances. These resins have also been used in miscellaneous brackets, gears, and clips, which require high rigidity and strength.
