Product Description
Amodel® A-1145 DW is a 45% glass-fiber-reinforced resin designed for high strength and stiffness and improved hydrolytic stability. This material has low moisture absorption and a low coefficient of thermal expansion, which means excellent dimensional stability. Creep resistance is also exceptional.

This grade has been approved for use with potable water in the United States, France, Germany, and the United Kingdom.
