Nymax™ PIR and reSound™ R ND Recycled Nylon Formulations
Nymax™ PIR nylon materials feature standard and custom-formulated nylon 66 and nylon 6 grades that contain post-industrial recycled content. Standard grades contain from 20%-100% recycled content. Nymax PIR materials can be combined with a wide range of reinforcements, modifiers and fillers to enhance performance requirements.
To expand your options and help you reach your sustainability goals, post-consumer recycled (PCR) nylon grades are also available under our new reSound™ R ND product line. This line includes seven grades formulated with 100% PCR resin, supporting a circular economy. The reSound R ND formulations include nylon 6 and 66 grades with various levels of glass fiber and mineral reinforcements and are available in North America, Europe and Asia.
Typically, nylon materials provide strength, durability, good stiffness and impact strength and can be tailored to enhance chemical and fire resistance. They have good weather resistance for use in outdoor applications. Nylon PIR and PCR formulations are no different, providing comparable performance to prime nylon grades with the benefit of being a more sustainable solution.
Both the PIR and PCR nylon materials can be found in transportation, consumer, household appliance, electrical and electronic, and industrial applications.
