Extruded Nylon 6/6 (polyhexamethylene adiptimide) is a moldable and extrudeable general-purpose nylon. Like Cast Nylon 6, it has good mechanical properties and wear resistance. Nylon 6/6 has a much higher melting point, better mechanical properties due to greater hardness, and lower water absorption than cast nylon. Because of its excellent balance of strength, ductility and heat resistance, nylon 6/6 is an outstanding candidate for metal replacement applications. Nylon 6/6 is very easy to process with a very wide process window. This allows it to be used for everything from complex, thin walled components to large thick walled housings. Unmodified nylon 6/6 is stocked in both natural and black; other colors are available on a custom basis. Unmodified nylon 6/6 is FDA, USDA, NSF and 3-A Dairy compliant.
