Melt Temperature: Nylene PA6 melts at 428°F, (220°C) actual melt temperatures of 440-560°F (227-293°C) are permissible, depending on residence time and shot size.

Mold Temperature: 120-200°F (49-93°C), highly filled grades require 180-200°F (82-93°C) to obtain the best overall surface appearance, higher temperatures will increase crystallinity.

Residence Time: should not exceed 6 minutes if possible, less with higher melt temperatures.

Shot Size: should be between 25-75% of barrel capacity.

Fill Rate: fast fill rates are suggested for best surface appearance.

Regrind Level: typically no more than 25% is recommended, with higher levels possible for unfilled grades depending on the end use requirements. Make certain regrind is properly dried to virgin moisture levels.

Drying Temperature: 150-180°F (66-82°C) for 2-4 hours, Nylene PA6 should be dried to less than 0.20% moisture for optimum performance. Drying longer than 4 hours or at higher temperatures may cause discoloration of the polymer or adversely affect important physical properties.
