NYLENE CX3482
TECHNICAL DATA SHEET

 
General Description    

  • Copolymer of nylon 6
  • Has many of the properties desirable in nylon 6 such as toughness, chemical resistance and strength coupled with the advantages of a copolymer
  • Advantages include high elongation, good clarity and flexibility, and lower processing temperatures
  • Effective processing is achieved with extruder and die temperatures in the range of 450 - 525°F but may be processed as low as 420°F
