6, 6/6, 6/66, 6/12

Nylon 6

Nylon 6 resins exhibit high tensile and impact strength, machinability, and elasticity. Nylon 6 also offers superior surface appearance when compared to Nylon 6/6. This resin is used in various automotive and industrial applications, not only for superior mechanical strength, but chemical resistance and heat deflection characteristics.

Nylon 6/12

Nylon 6 and Nylon 6/12 are both toxic-free synthetic polyamide compounds. Polyamide is a polymer of repeating amide bonds (-CO-NH-). The most crucial difference between these two plastic materials is their moisture absorption tolerance level; nylon 6/12 is more resistant to water and other liquids than nylon 6.

Nylon 6/6

Nylon 6/6 resin offers a well balanced combination of high strength, rigidity, good toughness, high melt point, good surface lubricity, and abrasion resistance. Nylon 6/6 resin tends to have a lower moisture absorption rate and will exhibit improved stiffness and heat deflection when compared to Nylon 6.

Nylon 6/66

Nylon 66 (loosely written nylon 6-6, nylon 6/6, nylon 6,6, or nylon 6:6) 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. Aside from its superior physical characteristics, nylon 66 is attractive because its precursors are inexpensive.
