Nylon’6 & Nylon '66
» Properties:
Due to their outstanding properties these material have become indispensable in almost all fields of engineering for the most varied components and machine parts, 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.

» Automobile Industry:
Exterior, under bonnet and near the engine applications. Easily paintable with low-cost bake paints and can be given a finish similar to metal components. Applications: Radiator Fan, Radiator Grill, Head/Tail Lamp Housing, Speedometer Gears, Door Handles, Fuel oil filter housing.

» Electrical / Electronics Industry:
Polyamide 6 resins, due to a combination of excellent electrical properties viz., insulation/tracking resistance, di-electric strength toughness and flame retardant characteristics are fast replacing conventional materials. Applications: Circuit Breaker, Battery Casing, Switch / Switch Parts, Terminal / Connectors, Carbon Brush Holder.

» Engineering Industry:
Better functional properties at low cost, metal components are being replaced by Polyamide 6. Applications: Gears / Bushes / Cams, Impeller Fans, Ropeway Pulley, Coupling Components, Roller, Castors, Nylock Nut/Washers, Idler Seals, Water Meter Housing, Insulator Liners.

» Textile Industry:
Higher abrasion resistance, silent running, high impact resistance and the need for anti-static surface, make Polyamide 6 a unique choice over the materials. Applications: Drafting spacer, Picker Bush Bobbins, Drive Pulley, Ring Tubes/Bobbins, Gears/Bushes, Magnetic Holder, Shuttles/Pirns, Steamable ring tubes, Tensions Craddle, Yarn Separators.

POLYBUTYLENE TEREPHTHALATE (PBT)
» Introductions & Properties:
PBT thermoplastic polyester resins are high performance plastic molding resins which are based on polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) polymers. By adding reinforcing agents and tougheners, the inherent low creep, dimensional stability and good electrical properties of PBT can be augmented to provide a family of molding resins with exceptional strength, stiffness and toughness. Alloying with other polymers and selecting the proper reinforcement technology can improve dimensional stability and surface appearance. PBT is offering superior performance in Flow, Flatness & Toughness.

» Industry Wise Applications:
Exterior Body Panels & Glazing:
Back Lites, Door Panels, Fenders, Fixed Glazing, Panoramic Roofs, Roof Modules & Tailgates.

Exterior Components, Trims & Accessories:
Appliques, Cowl Vent Grilles, Door , Handles, Front Grilles, Mirror Systems, Roof Racks, Running Boards, Spoilers, Tank Flaps & Wheel Covers.

Lighting:
