Nylon-MXD6 has a dissolution index (SP value) close to Nylon 6 and Nylon 66 aliphatic polyamides, which undergo recrystallization. By mechanically blending Nylon-MXD6, Nylon 6 and Nylon 66 by means of co-extrusion and co-injection, Nylon-MXD6 can readily combine with these two types of Nylon, thereby allowing the manufacture of molded products such as films and sheets. Nylon-MXD6 has gas-barrier characteristics greater than any other commercially marketed nylon resins. By blending in Nylon-MXD6, you can efficiently increase gas-barrier characteristics of blended Nylon 6 and Nylon 66. The addition of Nylon 6 to Nylon-MXD6 is also beneficial to Nylon-MXD6; it prevents the whitening of Nylon-MXD6 when it absorbs moisture, while it also improves Nylon-MXD6's impact resistance.
Fig. 7 shows the relationship between the blending ratio and the oxygen transmission coefficient of the Nylon-MXD6/Nylon 6 blended film. Contact MGC for further details about the selection and molding requirements of Nylon 6.

Laminated film with an integral gas-barrier layer, achieved by blending Nylon-MXD6 and Nylon 6 retains excellent gas-barrier quality after it has been heated. Transparency is also retained. Table 8 shows the change in the oxygen transmission coefficient of laminated films after they are subjected to boiling. Fig. 8 shows the cumulative oxygen transmission coefficient of Nylon-MXD6/Nylon 6 blended film after it has been boiled.

Nylon-MXD6 laminated film locks in the original aroma, while blocking out foreign odors. Table 9 shows the aroma-retaining and odor-blocking properties of various gas-barrier films.
