NYLENE 406
TECHNICAL DATA SHEET

 
General Description    

  • General purpose, fast cycling molding resin
  • Crystallization initiators provide fast molding cycles through rapid melt set-up
  • Parts molded from 406 have better dimensional stability at moisture equilibrium than parts molded from conventional nylon
  • Optimum processing conditions should provide a melt temperature of 450°F-470°F at the nozzle
