Nylon 66 GF 30 compound (PA 66 GF 30); production mix, at plant (Location: RER)

Collection: EPLCA : European Platform on Life Cycle Assessment 

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: PA 66 glass filled, Nylon 66 glass filled

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 smaller uses are films and filaments. Nylon 66 is often selected for use because of its

combination of toughness, stiffness, high melting point and chemical resistance. It is a relatively easy polymer to modify, so the range of different nylon resins available

is wider than for most other polymers. Typical modifiers are flame retardants to reduce flammability, rubber to improve impact resistance and glass or minerals to improve

stiffness and dimensional stability
