NYLENE 826
TECHNICAL DATA SHEET

 
General Description    

  • Nylon 6 based copolymer suitable for both blown and cast film coextrusionIt
  • Lower melting point and is less crystalline than nylon 6
  • Excellent toughness, chemical resistance, transparency, and low oxygen permeability
  • Films made using Nylene 826 exhibit superior deep draw characteristics
  • Because Nylene 826 is polymerized using a continuous process, it has good lot-to-lot consistency.

Notes:
    1. Oxygen permeability measured using 1 mil. monofilm.
    2. cc-mil/100 sq. in.-24 hr.-atm. @ 75 F.
    3. For comparison, values for nylon 6 monofilm of one mil was Measured at 3.1 cc-mil/100 sq. in.-24 hr.-atm.
PROCESSING CONDITIONS Nylene 826 can be processed effectively with extruder barrel and die temperatures set to give melt temperatures in the range of 440°F - 500°F.
