Devol 6GF30

Devol® 6GF30 is a cast Nylon 6 material containing 30 per cent glass fibre filler by volume. The filler reinforcement provides the the material with outstanding creep resistance, greater structural strength and dimensional stability.    

Typical application
This material is frequently used by the offshore sector as an internal buckle arrestor in pipe-in-pipe systems. It is also popular as support inserts for water stops in pipelines. On agricultural and construction plant it is used for highly loaded bushes that support a slow pivoting action.
