[UNITIKA Nylon Resin] Nano-Composite Nylon6

Characteristics and Basic properties

UNITIKA nanocomposite nylon "M1030DH" is a new-generation composite material superior in rigidity and heat resistance, which is made available by ultra dispersing specially-made layered silicate salt particles into a nylon resin to the nanometer size in the polymerization step using UNITIKA's proprietary method.

<Comparison of the Morphology between Nonocomposite Nylon Resins and Conventional Reinforced-Grade Nylon Resins>





UNITIKA nonocomposite nylons, reflecting the unique structure above, have the following characteristics

1. Low density and high-rigidity
The nanocomposite nylon resins have about twice greater rigidity than the nonreinforced nylon 6 resins, although their densities are similar.

2. Low opacifying property, surface smoothness, and glossiness
Nanocomposite nylon resins are superior in appearance and surface smoothness, as they only contain small amount of minerals but no glass.

3. Water-absorbing property
The water-absorbing speed and thus the dimensional change of nanocomposite nylon resins are smaller than general nylon resins, as nanocomposite nylon resins have higher crystallinity.

4. Moldability
Nanocomposite nylon resins are excellent in flowability and mold replication and allow high-cycle molding, as the resins crystallize very rapidly.
