Polyamide 6 and 66 (or Nylon 6 and 66) are the most common types of polyamide available commercially. The total volume for the Nylon 6 and 66 polymerization market is 7.2 million tons in 2014, up from 6.4 million tons in 2010. Nylon 6 and 66 polymerization produces either chips or resin in uniform pellets. The chips or resin are further processed into two major applications: fibers or engineering thermoplastics (ETP). The fibers may also be directly produced from the molten state of the. Zimmer AG's continuous two-stage polymerization process is widely licensed for the production of polyamide 6 (nylon 6). The polymerization of caprolactam with a catalyst is performed in a two-stage process using two vertical tube reactors in series.

Production and processing . Polyamides are typically made by combining two monomers namely, adipic acid with 1,6-diaminohexane. Once these two monomers have reacted together they form water as a by-product of each polymer chain linkage. This linking of the two monomers is known as polymerisation. This creates a nylon salt which is then heated to evaporate the water. This heating is done inside an autoclave at 280C and 18 Bar. After the polymerisation process, various additives and pigments.
Nylon 6 or polycaprolactam is a polymer developed by Paul Schlack at IG Farben to reproduce the properties of nylon 6,6 without violating the patent on its production. It is a semicrystalline polyamide. Unlike most other nylons, nylon 6 is not a condensation polymer, but instead is formed by ring-opening polymerization; this makes it a special case in the comparison between condensation and addition polymers. Its competition with nylon 6,6 and the example it set have also shaped. production Cyclohexane production Nitric acid production Cyclohexanol production Hydrogen production Adipic acid production Butadiene production Natural gas production Hexamethylene diamine production Glass fibre production Nylon 66 salt production Sulphuric acid production nylon 66 Figure 2 Schematic flow diagram of the principal operations leading to the production Process Data set: Polyamide 6.6 (PA6.6); 1 kg of primary PA6.6 at gate (production site output) representing a European industry production average, in pellet form; Europe-27; PA6.6 can be processed via extrusion, injection moulding and blow moulding.

What is Nylon 66. Nylon 66 (precisely nylon 6,6) is a polyamide made via condensation polymerization of a diamine and a dicarboxylic acid.The monomers used in the production of nylon 66 are hexamethylenediamine and adipic acid. Both these compounds consist of 6 carbon molecules, which leads to name the polymer formed from them as nylon 6,6 6.

How Nylon is Made For centuries, inventors tried to create a synthetic silk. In the early 1880's, Sir Joseph Swan experimented with forming threads by dissolving the inner bark of mulberry trees. Although Swan did realize that fabric could be woven from this material, he never pursued this application as he was mainly interested in finding a filament for Thomas Edison's light bulbs.

There is a 9 step process to make nylon and other polyamide fabrics. The first step is to get some crude oil and extract the diamine acid from that product. Then the diamine acid is actually forced to mix with adipic acid to form the polymer called nylon salt. Once crystallized, the salt is heated to form a very hot liquid. That liquid is then put through a metal spinneret and extruded into. Solvay is globally launching Bio Amni®, the first partially bio-based polyamide textile yarn developed by the company.
