NYLENE NX 1440C
TECHNICAL DATA SHEET

 
General Description    

  • Medium viscosity, fast cycle molding resin.
  • Crystallization initiators provide fast molding cycles through rapid melt set-up.
  • Parts molded from NX1440 have better dimensional stability at moisture equilibrium than parts molded from conventional nylon.
  • Suitable for such uses as clips and fasteners, bushings, small levers, gears, and window hardware.
  • Optimum processing conditions should provide a melt temperature of 460 - 480°F at the nozzle.
