nylon 6,6 growth is attributed to the accelerated usage in the automobile
industry. The material is used in the manufacturing of various components to
decrease the weight of vehicles and emission levels. Nylon 6,6 is increasingly
replacing metal parts in automobiles, owing to their high elasticity, high
tensile strength, and excellent abrasion resistance. These factors are
anticipated to expand the growth of the overall market. Nylon 6,6 is used in
engine components such as oil containers, wire harness connectors bushings,
bearing, fuse boxes, cylinder head covers, crankcases, and timing belts.
Nylon 6,6 offers high wear and abrasion resistance, high tensile strength and
hardness, low coefficient of friction, high melting point, high dimensional stability,
excellent machinability and others. These beneficial features of nylon 6,6 and
its use in various industry verticals is expected to drive the market of global
nylon 6,6 during the forecast period.
6,6 is also exhibiting a trend of being captivated by the textile industry and
the plastics engineering industry. This factor is expected to positively
influence the market growth in the projected years.
Nylon 6,6 Market: Overview
Nylon is one of the most common and
widely used engineering thermoplastic materials. It is cost-effective, and it
has superior properties. Two different molecules (adipic acid and hexamethylene
diamine) are combined to create repeat units of 6 carbon atoms, thus the name
nylon 6,6. Nylon 6,6 commonly used due its combination of stiffness, high
melting point, toughness, and chemical resistance. It is a comparatively easy
polymer to modify, so the variety of different nylon resins available is wider
than for most other polymers.
And, with a less open structure, the 6,6
fiber has good dye wash fastness and UV light-fastness, and excellent
performance in high-speed spinning processes.
Polyamides, also commonly known as
Nylons, and are rated according to the number of carbon atoms contained in the
primary structure between the nitrogen atoms. Accordingly, Polyamide 66
includes two groups of six carbon atoms each. The resulting structure offers a
marked difference in some of the properties useful for engineering applications
when compared with other available Nylons. Nylon 66 has high flexural modulus,
high tensile strength, high melting point, and better resistance in comparison
to other unmodified nylons (polyamides).
Nylon 66 is available in natural and MoS2
filled grades and is part of a range of high-performance engineering plastics

use in automobile
parts are increasingly made from nylon materials. These parts are often
exhibited to relatively high temperatures and corrosive chemicals, exposure
conditions that can influence their long‐term performance. Glass fiber
reinforced nylon 6,6 is one of the more popularly used polymers in the
automotive applications. Parts made from this material include oil caps,
radiator headers, and, more recently, intake manifolds.
Increasing demand due to various
66 is frequently used when high mechanical strength, good stability under heat
and/or chemical resistance, rigidity is required. It is used in fibers for
textiles and carpets and others. Nylon 6,6 is semi crystalline polyamide generally
used in fiber applications such as clothing, carpeting, and tire cord. It is
also used as an engineering material in bearings and gears due to its good
abrasion resistance and self-lubricating properties.
While nylon 6,6 is extremely useful in our
day-to-day lives, the environmental consequences of nylon 6,6 are significant
and should be regulated. Nylon 6,6 is a synthetic man-made fiber obtained from
petrochemicals, a thermoplastic that is used widely throughout the textile
industry. It is very versatile and is used for everything from stockings and
parachutes to carpets, packaging, and even car parts.
With more nylon 6,6 produced in countries with
weaker environmental protections in place, this makes nylon a significant
contributor to water pollution, and thus water insecurity in the developing
world. However, nylon is also less water-intensive to produce than natural
fibers, so some of the consequences of the fiber on the water are mitigated by
