Nylon 6 & 66 General Processing Guidelines

Nylon 6 and Nylon 66 are two of the most popular and versatile polymers in the world. They find extensive applications in industries ranging from automotive and aerospace to consumer goods and textiles. However, despite their widespread use, there has been some confusion regarding drying, moisture content, and proper processing temperatures. Our Nylon 6 and Nylon 66 General Processing Guidelines help you better understand these principles and can help manufacturers optimize their production processes and improve product quality. Because both processing and final properties are highly dependent on proper drying and proper moisture content, this is discussed in detail. While Nylon is very forgiving regarding the processing conditions, there is an ideal processing temperature window that should be used, along with proper moisture content in order to maximize the final part properties. Our Nylon General Processing Guidelines document can help processors understand how these processing parameters interact with one another.
