About PA66 (Nylon 66)

PA66 (Nylon 66) is a member of polyamide or nylon family. It is one of the most common types of nylons that is utilised in textile and plastic industries. Nylon 66 is called so because it is produced from two monomers, namely, hexamethylenediamine and adipic acid, and each contains 6 carbon atoms. It has a lower moisture absorption frequency than PA6. Nylon 66 is known for its high mechanical strength, rigidity, good stability under heat and/or chemical resistance.

Chemical Formula:

  • (C12H22N2O2)n
