With structural products the substitution of metal
is a concrete opportunity offered to designers
who want to combine the intrinsic advantages of
polymers with the great ease of transformation
and flexibility of design by injection-moulding.
The structural grades offer dimensional stability,
rigidity, mechanical performances even under extreme
stress and high temperatures, thanks to the reinforcements
used, from glass fibre to high-tenacity carbon
fibre, grades with an elastic module greatly superior
to 20 GPa and a tensile stress superior to 230
MPa are available.
In addition, specific formulations guarantee maximum
resistance to phenomena such as creep and fatigue,
so enabling manufactured articles destined to
sustain repeated and prolonged stress to be designed.
Special versions are also created to satisfy the
most varied requirements, from self-extinguishing
to self-lubrication, in coloured versions or with
particular stabilization against ultraviolet radiation
or chemical agression.
High-aesthetical structural grades
LATIGLOSS is a group of PA66 conceived for structural
use and characterized by the exceptional properties
of the surface finishing. With LATIGLOSS materials,
the aspect of moulded products does not present
the typical defects associated with a fibre
content; this also applies to grades reinforced
