Polycaprolactam
Polyamide 6
Nylon 6 (a.k.a. Polycaprolactam, Polyamide 6) is one of the main commercial nylons along with Nylon 6-6. The term ‘Nylon’ refers basically to polyamides, which are high polymers containing the amide repeat linkage in the polymer backbone. Those polymers not only were the first engineering thermoplastics but still are the most important ones among these types of material.

Nylon 6 Production from Caprolactam | Nylon 6 E11A

This report presents the economics of Nylon 6 production from caprolactam. The typical process analyzed consists of a batch ring-opening polymerization of caprolactam via the hydrolytic mechanism. The economic assessment assumes a plant located in the USA.

Details: 65 kta United States-based plant   |   Q2 2019   |   106 pages   From $799

The cost analyses presented in the report Nylon 6 E11A target a 65 kta (kilometric tons per annun) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Nylon 6 Production from Caprolactam | Nylon 6 E12A

This report presents the economics of Nylon 6 production from caprolactam in the USA. The process examined is a typical continuous ring-opening polymerization of caprolactam via the hydrolytic mechanism, carried out in two stages, similar to technologies developed/licensed by Thyssenkrupp (Uhde Inventa-Fischer) and Air Liquide (Lurgi Zimmer). An aminoacid is the intermediate for condensation.

This report is also available in report subscriptions offered by Intratec.

Details: 100 kta United States-based plant   |   Q2 2019   |   106 pages   From $799

The cost analyses presented in the report Nylon 6 E12A target a 100 kta (kilometric tons per annun) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.
