Nymax™ PIR Post-Industrial Recycled Nylon Formulations
Recycled Content, High Performance
Nymax™ PIR nylon materials feature standard and custom-formulated nylon 66 and nylon 6 grades that contain post-industrial recycled content. Standard grades contain between 20 and100 percent recycled content. Nymax PIR materials can be combined with a wide range of reinforcements, modifiers and fillers to enhance performance requirements.
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 formulations are no different, providing comparable performance to prime nylon grades with the benefit of being a more sustainable solution.
Our Nymax™ PIR materials can be found in transportation, consumer, household appliance, electrical and electronic, and industrial applications.
