ForTii® MX2

Technical DataSheet | Supplied by DSM

ForTii® MX2 by DSM Engineering Plastics is a high performance polyphthalamide based on polyamide 4T grade, reinforced with 40% glass fiber. It is partially aromatic, heat stabilized, semi-crystalline and an alternative to die-casting metals. Possesses good mechanical strength, heat deflection temperature and good toughness across a broad range of temperature. Exhibits good impact strength and high dimensional stability at ambient elevated (100°C). ForTii® MX2 is suitable for processing by injection molding. Used in automotive applications.
