DuPont Elvamide® nylon multipolymer resins are a family of unique polymers having outstanding abrasion resistance, high tensile strength and elongation, and excellent adhesion to nylon yarns. Important benefits of DuPont Elvamide® are:Excellent adhesion to nylon yarn Readily applied from solutions in low cost, quick evaporating alcohols High melting point prevents “gumming-up” at high needle temperatures frequently encountered in high speed sewing Only 4% to 10% Elvamide® is required to give excellent bonding, with consistent quality Elvamide®8061 is a general purpose nylon multipolymer resin combining good solubility, abrasion resistance and toughness.
