AMILAN™ Nylon resin

AMILAN™ Nylon resin is a thermoplastic engineering plastic containing an amide group (-CONH-) and it exhibits excellent strength, toughness, heat resistance, and anti-friction wear resistance.

Toray’s lineup consists of Nylon 6, Nylon 66, Nylon 610 as well as a large number of co-polymer nylon formulations. In addition, a variety of grades designed for various customer needs and applications are available, including non-reinforced, reinforced, flame retardant, anti-friction wear, high impact, film, monofilament, and blow molding grades.


■Nylon 6 and Nylon 66

  • Features an excellent balance of properties in terms of mechanical behavior.
  • Features superior toughness under standard humidity conditions.
  • Features superior chemical and oil resistance.
  • Features superior anti-abrasion and wear resistance.
  • The self-extinguishing and flame retardant properties of almost all grades conforms with UL standard 94V0.
  • Features superior long-term heat resistance (maximum long-term continuous use temperature: approximately 80~150℃)
  • Grades that are reinforced with glass fibers are particularly outstanding in terms of their elastic modulus and strength.
  • Features low gasoline permeability and superior gas barrier properties.

■Nylon 610

  • Features excellent flexibility as well as impact resistance at low temperatures.
  • Features relatively minimal absorbency and excellent dimensional stability.
  • Features excellent bending fatigue properties.

■Copolymer Nylon

  • Products with special features including transparency, flexibility, and adhesiveness are available.
  • Products with special characteristics including solubility in alcohol are available.

Glow Wire Standard-Compliant Highly Flame-Retardant Nylon ResinAMILAN™ CM6004-VG

Materials that can withstand high temperatures in glow wire tests provide advantages in certificating final products, such as expanding product application areas and being exempt from testing once incorporated into products.In this document, we propose nylon resins that, in addition to providing superior glow wire characteristics, are flame resistant, tracking resistant, and tough.
