It is easy to combine Nylon-MXD6 with other materials for co-extrusion and co-injection molding. This property makes possible its wide-range of applications, e.g., the production of laminated films, sheets and containers.
You can also blend Nylon-MXD6 with other materials to improve mechanical properties and to achieve greater gas-barrier characteristics.
In addition, the excellent physical properties of Nylon-MXD6, e.g., great strength, high elastic modulus, and low water absorption, are enhanced when Nylon-MXD6 is used as a molding material in the production of monofilaments and special fibers.
Nylon-MXD6 is available in three different grades of varying molecular weight. Table 6 shows the various grades and their properties.
|Moisture Content (%)||0.15 or less||0.15 or less||0.15 or less|
|Melting Point (℃)||240±5||240±5||240±5|
Table 7 shows examples of grade selection to match the desired use. As the Table shows, Nylon-MXD6 can be used for various applications to produce films, sheets, bottles, trays and cups.
|Monolayer or Multilayer films||S6007|
|Multilayer bottles and tubes
|Monolayer blend bottles with PET
(injection stretch blow)
|Multilayer bottles with PET or PP
(co-injection stretch blow)
