PA 850 (PA 11 Black)

A flexible, strong material for living hinges and snap fit parts. 

PA 11 Black (PA850)

Product Description

PA 11 Black provides excellent ductility and temperature resistance without sacrificing tensile strength. It offers one of the highest elongation break thresholds in the nylon family.

 

Key Product Benefits

  • High elongation at break
  • Flexibility
  • Uniform black color


Applications

The material is suited for functional, moving parts with features like snap fits and living hinges. Its black color makes it desirable for optical applications due to low reflectivity

Tolerances

For well-designed parts, tolerances of ±0.012 in. plus ±0.002 in./in. for each additional inch can typically be achieved.
Note that tolerances may change depending on part geometry
