NYLENE 494P
TECHNICAL DATA SHEET

 
General Description    

  • Specially formulated nylon powder for the ROTOMOLDING process
  • 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

Notes
  • Testing conducted on dry-as-molded specimens at 73F
  • All Nylene rotomolding grade nylons are dried to less than 0.15% moisture eliminating the need for pre-drying of virgin material
  • Nylene strongly recommends the use of inert gases such as nitrogen in the mold to minimize thermal degradation of the nylon
