About Nylon 6 & Nylon 66 & Nylon-MXD6


Type Properties & Uses
Nylon 6 (PA6) It is a translucent or opaque opalescent resin with superior mechanical properties, stiffness, toughness, wear resistance and mechanical shock absorption, good insulation and chemical resistance. Widely used in many fields such as automotive parts, electronic and electrical zero. 
Nylon 66 (PA66) Compared with nylon 6, its mechanical strength, stiffness, heat and wear resistance, better creep resistance, but impact strength and mechanical shock absorption properties decreased. It has a wide range of applications in automobiles, drones, electronics and electrical.
Nylon-MXD6 Although the barrier property of nylon MXD6 is a little worse than pvdc and evoh, its barrier property is not affected by temperature and humidity, which is especially suitable for high temperature and humid occasions. Dimensional stability, low water absorption and small dimensional change after water absorption, less change in mechanical strength; shrinkage after mechanical processing is very small, suitable for precision molding process.



Advantages of Nylon MXD6


Compared with nylon 6 and nylon 66, nylon MXD6 has the following good characteristics.


Greater strength and modulus of elasticity


High glass transition temperature


Low water absorption and moisture permeability


Good crystallization rate and ease of molding and fabrication


Good gas barrier properties

Which nylon is best for machining?


There are many kinds of nylon materials, commonly used for CNC machining include nylon 6, nylon 66, nylon 11 and nylon 12, the most suitable for CNC machining is nylon 66, due to its excellent performance, good wear resistance and tensile strength, able to withstand high speed cutting from CNC machines without deformation.

The use of nylon 66 for CNC machining services can maintain the flexibility of product design, lighter quality, higher precision and lower noise in the manufacture of gears, sliders and other mechanical parts.
