A3WG8 and A3WG10 grades are filled with 40 and 50% glass fibers, respectively, while A3WGM53 is glass-fiber and mineral reinforced. The PAs are compounded with nanoparticles that improve flow properties making them candidates for large-engine-compartment components with thinner walls. The first highly filled grades in the PA 6 family with a similar property profile are also being developed.
