Summary Descriptions


High strength, good impact, high abrasion resistance and medium stiffness.


Very high strength in both tensile and compression, high stiffness and high resistance to corrosion, creep and fatigue. But poor impact strength.


Good compressive strength and stiffness, good tensile strength and excellent electrical insulation properties at relatively low cost.
