Technical Data Sheet
Nylene CX3395 is a high RV nylon 6,69 copolymer suitable for both blown and cast film co-extrusion.
CX3395 has a lower melt point and is less crystalline than standard nylon 6 resins. In addition to it's excellent film application properties, CX3395 exhibits superior deep-drawing characteristics.

For comparison, values for nylon 6 monofilm of one mil was measured at 3.1 cc-mil/100 sq. in.-24 hr.-atm.
Nylene CX3395 can be processed effectively with extruder barrel and die temperatures set to give melt temperatures in the range of 440 – 500°(227 - 260 °C)
Recommended Processing Considerations: PA 6/69 Extrusion
Residence Time: Screw should not be left idle for more than 3-4 minutes with melt in the barrel. Excess residence will be visible as black carbon specs in the melt.
Regrind Level: Typically, up to 25% is recommended but higher levels are possible with little or no effect on flow and finish.
Drying Temperature: Although Nylene resins are packaged and delivered in a low moisture state, it is good material handling practice to use a hopper dryer to maintain dryness. Should pre-drying be necessary, use settings of 65 °C (150°F) air at dew point of -40 at a rate of 1 cu. ft. / hour per pound of resin and a residence time of 2-4 hours.
Cooling and Sizing: While both air and water can be used as the cooling medium, air is preferred. The use of air allows additional time for sizing and reduces residual stress. This aids in reducing warpage, especially in profiles with varying wall sections. If water is used, heat the first section to above 38 °C 100°F) to reduce quenching and residual stress.
Die Design: Draw down of 30% is typical for all dimensions except wall thickness.
