These are frequently an excellent alternative to stainless steel, where good resistance to corrosion is required but not the ultimate heavy duty strength of stainless. Glass reinforced polyamide is a proven material in this application where good appearance, low cost and good performance are required with long service life and a high degree of corrosion resistance.
