Title: Nylon 6 granulate (PA 6); production mix, at plant (Location: RER)

Description

Raw data for polymerization and intermediate products are collected by several producers in Europe; the average is calculated by the consultant based on the production capacity of the companies. The LCI result is calculated with background data from the Boustead database.

Synonyms: Polyamide 6, Perlon, Polycaprolactam, Poly[imino(1-oxo-1,6-hexanediyl)]

Technical Purpose: About two thirds of the nylon produced in Europe is used for fibres (textiles, carpets, etc.) while most of the remainder is used in injection moulded components (automotive parts, consumer goods, etc.) Other minor uses are films and filaments.
