Product Details

Nylatron® SLG-FDA PA6 takes the performance of Nylatron® LIG PA6 and adds FDA compliance for appplications where food contact is possible.  Food packaging and processing equipment users can now benefit from the benefits of this material.


Nylons can absorb up to 7% (by weight) water under high humidity or submerged in water. This can result in dimensional changes up to 2% and a corresponding reduction of physical properties. Proper design techniques can frequently compensate for this factor.


Brand Name Change:
