TECANYL MT can be ordered in a wide range of colour options and dimensions. To protect the material, goods are delivered in a film or blister pack. We are pleased to issue certifications for these materials on an order-specific basis as a guarantee of product safety and traceability back to the raw materials. Please state when placing your order whether you require a certificate and its intended purpose.


This is a special 30% glass fibre reinforced product.

In comparison to TECANYL, TECANYL GF30 demonstrates optimized properties in a number of areas.

  • High rigidity
  • High mechanical strength
  • High creep strength
  • High compressive strength
  • Very high dimensional stability

These properties make this material suitable for use in parts which are exposed to high static loads over long periods. As glass fibres tend in some cases to have a marked abrasive effect on mating surfaces, TECANYL GF30 is less suitable for sliding applications.
