Nylon Modification with DuPont Polymer Modifiers Customizing the impact strength of polyamide (PA) compounds DuPont’s broad range polymer modifiers for nylon modification, including ionomers, ethylene copolymers and grafted polymers, can help customize the impact strength of polyamide (PA) compounds.
TECAMID 12 natural PA 12. TECAMID 12 natural is a semi crystalline polyamide 12 with very high toughness and good chemical resistance, with reduced sensitivity to stress cracking. The TECAMID Nylon 12 properties include the lowest water absorption characteristics of all polyamides, which means any parts made from PA 12 should remain stable in humid environments.
There are often numbers associated with nylon plastics types such as 6, 66, 12 and 46. These numbers relate to the molecular structure of the nylon polymer and each structure type will have different properties. The most common polyamide plastics are Nylon 6 extruded, cast PA 6 and Nylon 66 (PA66).
What is Cast Nylon 6/12? Nylon; is an extremely versatile engineering plastic making it one of the most widely used engineering thermoplastics today. An excellent combination of mechanical performance like low coefficient of friction, good abrasion resistance, toughness and cost make Nylon an ideal replacement for a wide variety of materials from metal to rubber.
