Vydyne R513H Properties

Vydyne R513H



Vydyne R513H nylon resins are general purpose polyamide, 13% glass fiber reinforced and heat stabilized. They are injection molding grade resins that are lubricated for machine feed, flow and mold release. Vydyne R513H is a member of a glass reinforced family supplied by Ascend Performance Materials which also includes 33% and 43% glass fiber loadings. These resins provide a range of cost performance products in which tensile strength is increased with the increasing glass fiber loadings. Vydyne R513H 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.The Vydyne R513H series resins are heat stabilized and formulated to minimize the oxidative and thermal degradation of the nylon polymer when exposed to elevated temperatures for extended periods of time. Vydyne R513H 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.Vydyne R513H series 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.
