Technical Data Sheet
High viscosity nylon 6 designed for the extrusion of blown film (both mono-layer and multi-layer film structures).
Suitable for profile extrusion such as tubing, shapes, etc.
Good oxygen and flavor barrier to increase shelf life
Nylene NX3064N has superior grease resistance, toughness, resistance to abrasion, and does not absorb food odors.
Nylene films can be drawn to provide pockets for many food shapes.
Offers chemical and heat resistance for hot filling wide range of food and chemicals
Notched Izod @ 23°C
Ultimate Tensile Strength
Testing conducted on dry-as-molded specimens at 73°F (22.8°C}
Recommended Processing Considerations: High Viscosity 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 180 °F (82.2°C) 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 100 °F (38°C) to reduce quenching and residual stress.
Die Design: Draw down of 30% is typical for all dimensions except wall thickness.
Land length: should be around 10x wall thickness.
