Nylon 66

Nylon 6/6 is one of the most versatile engineering thermoplastics. It is popular in every major market using thermoplastic materials. Because of its excellent balance of strength, ductility and heat resistance, nylon 6/6 is an outstanding candidate for metal replacement applications. Nylon 6/6 is very easy to process with a very wide process window. This allows it to be used for everything from complex, thin walled components to large thick walled housings

Features and applications


Nylon 66 is a type of polyamide or nylon. It, and nylon 6, are the two most common for textile and plastic industries. Nylon 66 is made of two monomers each containing 6 carbon atoms, hexamethylenediamine and adipic acid, which give nylon 66 its name.


Strength is higher than all polyamide varieties

The yield strength is higher than that of nylon 6 and nylon 610.

High strength, toughness, rigidity and low coefficient of friction in a wide temperature range

Oil resistant and many chemical reagents and solvents

Good wear resistance


High hygroscopicity

Reduced impact strength in a dry environment

The molding process is difficult to control

Industry application recommendation
