Radilon® S (PA6) and Radilon® A (PA6.6)
Radilon® A is the brand name for polyamide 66, a copolymer of adipic acid and hexamethylenediamine. Nylon 66 features a high melting point, superior stiffness and good abrasion resistance, and allows for the ease of moulding thin-wall parts with very fast cycles. This EPD covers RADILON® A RV 250, RADILON® A RV 300 and RADILON® A RV 350.
Radilon® S is the brand name for polyamide 6, a copolymer of caprolactam. Nylon 6 is easy to process; it has a lower melting point, excellent impact strength particularly on conditioned samples, and is softer than nylon 66. The second family of products covered by this EPD comprises RADILON® S RV 250, RADILON® S RV 300 and RADILON® S RV 350.
The range of glass-fibre reinforced polyamides covered in this EPD includes materials with different glass-fibre percentages. As the reinforcement increases, certain characteristics such as stiffness and dimensional stability improve even at high temperatures.
