Common features of Minlon® nylon resin include mechanical and physical properties such as high mechanical strength, excellent balance of stiffness /toughness, good high temperature performance, good chemical resistance, paintability, dimensional stability and low warpage. Grades with improved electrical and flammability properties are available within the Zytel® nylon resin product line. In addition, Minlon® nylon resin is available in different modified and reinforced grades to create a wide range of products with tailored properties for specific processes and end-uses.The good melt stability of Minlon® nylon resin normally enables the recycling of properly handled production waste. If recycling is not possible, DuPont recommends, as the preferred option, incineration with energy recovery (-31kJ/g of base polymer) in appropriately equipped installations. For disposal, local regulations have to be observed.Minlon® nylon resin typically is used in demanding applications in the automotive, electrical, electronic, domestic appliances and construction industries.Minlon® 11C140BK086 is a 40% mineral reinforced, heat stabilized polyamide 66 resin for injection molding. It has very low warpage.
