Nymax™ REC Recycled Nylon Formulations
Nymax™ REC recycled nylon materials feature standard and custom-formulated nylon 66 and nylon 6 grades that contain post-industrial recycled (PIR) content and post-consumer recycled (PCR) content, supporting the circular economy. Standard grades contain 20-100% recycled content. Nymax REC 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. Nymax REC materials 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.
