Nylon 6 - is made from polycondensation of caprolactam. It is also called as Polycaprolactam , Polyamide or PA 6. It is a semicrystalline polyamide and has good weldability. It is used in injection molding, blow moulding and extrusion.

Nylon 66 - is made from polycondensation of adipic acid with hexamethylene diamine. It is also called as Polyhexamethylenedipamide, Adipic Acid Hexamediamine Polymer, Polyamide 66 or PA 66. It has very high melting point, high tensile strength, elasticity, toughness and abrasion resistance. It is mainly used in injection moulding and extrusion moulding.

Riviera Polymers offers various injection molding grades of lubricated Nylon 6 & 66 in Natural & all colors. We also do grades with Glass Fibre / Beads reinforced, Mineral filled, Mos2 filled, Flame Retardant, Heat Stabilised, UV Stabilised & combination of these, customised as per customer requirements in Prime & Industrial Series

Considering the outstanding propertie of Nylon 6 & Nylon 66 material, these have become indispensable in almost all fields of engineering for the most varied components and machine components, as high-quality electrical insulating materials and for many other special applications. Nylon is exceptional for its high mechanical strength, rigidity and thermal stability. Moreover, Nylon affords good impact resistance even at low temperatures, advantages sliding friction properties and problem-free processing. It is mainly used in Automobile, Engineering, Electrical, Electronics & Textiles industries.
