Engineering plastic type CF
TECHNICAL DATA SHEET
ESD safe replaceable fiber tip tweezers provide durable tip materials with self-aligning replacement tips and an-
ti-magnetic stainless steel handles for precision handling applications.
General notes:
»PA66/CF30 polyamide 66 reinforced with 30 wt% carbon fibre
»ESD safe material
»Low friction, self lubricating properties
»Excellent wear and abrasion resistance
»High mechanical strength and toughness
»Very high rigidity, excellent tensile and flexural strength (bend strength), fatigue and creep resistance
»Heat stabilized, 130°C (continuos use) - 190° (short time)
»Very low coefficient of linear thermal expansion
»Good chemical resistance (oils, grease, fuels, non polar solvents)
»Lead-free
Applications include handling of sensitive components and devices (electronic components, micro-mechanical
parts, glass and ceramic substrates, etc.) where non-scratching is critical. Popular in standard ESD and general
electronics assembly and lab applications.
NOTE: Not resistant to strong acids, alkalis, hot water or steam.
