Various Grades and Uses

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.


Various Grades and Uses


Nylon-MXD6 is available in three different grades of varying molecular weight. Table 6 shows the various grades and their properties.

Table 6: Various Grades of Nylon-MXD6
Property Grades
S6001 S6007 S6121
Relative Viscosity 2.1 2.7 3.5
MI 7 2 0.5
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.
