  • Nylene® 494P IM UV
  • Technical Data Sheet
Resin Type:
  • Nylon 6
  • 10 year UV stabilization package added for outdoor exposure protection.
  • Dried to less than 0.20% moisture and packaged in foil-lined drums to eliminate the need for pre-drying.
  • For uses where HIGH IMPACT properties are required.
  • Specially formulated nylon powder for the ROTOMOLDING process.
  • Chemical resistance to aromatic solvents, etc. especially at elevated temperatures.
  • UV resistance package increases end-use product life, protects against premature color fading, and retains appearance under weathering conditions for longer periods.
  • Permits a single step process and a single layer material fuel tank. This will reduce the chances of failure and scrap, which makes it extremely cost competitive.
  • Meets the strict CARB and EPA fuel permeation regulations.
  • Higher impact at room and elevated temperatures.
  • Higher heat resistance and melting point.
  • Excellent low temperature impact properties (Special impact modified products).
