CiLON® – PA6 Compounds (Unparalleled strength, rigidity, and performance in Polyamide)

In the world of plastics, there are many different properties to consider when choosing materials for various applications. One such material is polyamide (PA). PA is a category of thermoplastic resins that are made from synthetic fibers produced from ammonia, carbon dioxide and methane. It’s used in everyday applications like car bumpers, high-end electronics, sporting goods, medical devices, and much more. In order to provide the best performance characteristics possible in their products, manufacturers need to choose their PA6 compounds carefully. There are several different types of PA6 available on the market today. The right one can make all the difference…

What is PA6?
Polyamides are a family of thermoplastic materials that are created from a synthetic fiber that is produced from ammonia, carbon dioxide, and methane. PA is used in a wide variety of industries for its outstanding properties of strength, rigidity, and low friction. PA6 is one of the most popular types of PA that are used in a variety of industries such as automotive, electronics, sports equipment, and medical devices. PA6 has many different variations and each one has slightly different properties.

Unidirectional PA6
Unidirectional PA6 is a type of PA6 that is created during the manufacturing process by creating a “spinning process”. This process creates a single fiber in a single direction. Unidirectional PA6 has a high tensile strength and abrasion resistance and a low impact strength. This type of PA6 is primarily used in high-load applications that require a high level of toughness. Unidirectional PA6 can be oil, solvent, and water resistant.

Co-Polymer PA6
Co-polymer PA6 is another type of PA6 that is created during the manufacturing process by creating a “spinning process”. This type of PA6 is created by blending two or more different materials together to create a co-polymer. One of the materials is typically PA6. Co-polymer PA6 has a high impact strength, good rigidity and low creep. This type of PA6 can be oil and solvent resistant. Co-polymers are used in applications that require a high level of toughness and impact resistance.

Ultra High Molecular Weight PA6
Ultra high molecular weight PA6 is a type of PA6 that is created during the manufacturing process by creating a “spinning process”. This type of PA6 is created with a high molecular weight polymer chain. Ultra high molecular weight PA6 has a high tear strength, high tensile strength and good rigidity. This type of PA6 is used in applications that require a high level of toughness.

Polymer Chain Continuity PA6
Polymer chain continuity PA6 is a type of PA6 that is created during the manufacturing process by creating a “spinning process”. This type of PA6 is created with a high molecular weight polymer chain. Polymer chain continuity PA6 has a high tear strength and good rigidity. This type of PA6 is used in applications that require a high level of toughness.

Duramax™ PA6
Duramax PA6 is a type of PA6 that is created during the manufacturing process by creating a “spinning process”. This type of PA6 is created with a high molecular weight polymer chain. Duramax PA6 has a high tear strength and good rigidity. This type of PA6 is used in applications that require a high level of toughness.

Summing Up

Choosing the right type of PA6 is crucial to getting the best performance in your application. There are many different types of PA6 available to choose from, each with its own set of properties. When selecting a PA6, be sure to consider the specific properties required for your application. And remember, not all PA6 is created equal.
