Polyamide powder filled with glass particles (PA-GF) has a much higher thermal resistance (up to 110°C) than polyamide, and is typically used in functional tests with high thermal loads. This material exhibits excellent stiffness, high density and tensile strength, combined with low specific weight. As a result, PA-GF is ideal for demanding conditions where stiffness, temperature performance or wear resistance is key.
