PA6 Established ET6000-5021 X7 GREY PolyOne Corporation Nylon 6

Item No.: ET6000-5021 X7 GREY
PA6, also known as nylon 6, is a translucent or opaque milky white granule. It is thermoplastic, lightweight, tough, chemical and durable. It is commonly used in automotive parts, mechanical parts, electronic parts

       Melting point: 210 - 220 °C De
Basic characteristics of molding considerations

The chemical and physical properties of PA6 are similar to those of PA66. However, it has a low melting point and a wide process temperature range. Its impact resistance and resistance

Solubility is better than PA66, but it is also more hygroscopic. Since many of the quality characteristics of plastic parts are affected by hygroscopicity, the PA6 design is used.

Consider this when considering products. In order to improve the mechanical properties of PA6, various modifiers are usually added. Fiberglass is the most common

Additives are sometimes added to synthetic rubbers such as EPDM and SBR to improve impact resistance. For products without additives, shrinkage of PA6

Between 1% and 1.5%. The addition of a glass fiber additive reduces the shrinkage to 0.3% (but slightly higher in the direction perpendicular to the flow).

The shrinkage of the molded component is primarily affected by the crystallinity and hygroscopicity of the material. The actual shrinkage is also related to the design of the plastic part, the wall thickness and other process parameters.

Functional relationship.

Processing Technology
Drying treatment:

Since PA6 is easy to absorb moisture, special attention should be paid to drying before processing. If the material is supplied with waterproof material, then the capacity is

The device should be kept sealed. If the humidity is greater than 0.2%, it is recommended to dry in hot air above 80 °C for 16 hours. If the material is already in the air

Dew time is more than 8 hours, it is recommended to vacuum dry at 105 ° C for more than 8 hours.

Melting point temperature:

230-280 ° C, suitable for 250-280 ° C enhanced varieties
