NYLENE 494P IM
TECHNICAL DATA SHEET

 
General Description    

  • Specially formulated nylon powder for the ROTOMOLDING process
  • For uses where HIGH IMPACT properties are required
  • Heat stabilized
  • Dried to less than 0.20% moisture and packaged in foil-lined drums to eliminate the need for pre-drying
  • Strongly recommend the use of an inert gas such as nitrogen in the mold to minimize thermal degradation during processing
