Nylon (a.k.a. Polycaprolactam, Polyamide 6, Nylon 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.
The uses and applications of Nylon 6 may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Nylon 6 are pellets; fiber; and resins.

Updated Reports Examining Nylon Manufacturing Costs

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand Commodity Cost of Production reports analyzing the costs of Nylon manufacturing processes. Each report describes an industrial plant based on a specific Nylon process. The report also presents an independent analysis of the costs of Nylon production, encompassing plant capital costs (capex) and plant operating costs (opex). All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q4 2023).

Nylon 6 Production from Caprolactam (Batch Process)

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 United States.

Details: 65 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report Nylon 6 E11A target a 65 kta (kilometric tons per annum) 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 (Continuous Process)

This report presents the economics of Nylon 6 production from caprolactam in the United States. 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.

Details: 100 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   108 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report Nylon 6 E12A target a 100 kta (kilometric tons per annum) 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.

About Nylon. Nylon (a.k.a. Polycaprolactam, Polyamide 6, Nylon 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.

Nylon Uses. The uses and applications of Nylon 6 may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Nylon 6 are pellets; fiber; and resins.

Intratec Methodology. Intratec distilled its expertise, gained from more than a decade of supporting companies worldwide in the analysis of commodities markets and process economics, and developed a consistent report development methodology.

The methodology ensures a holistic, coherent, and consistent techno-economic evaluation, guiding the development of a report that allows readers to fully understand a specific process technology for the production of a commodity. In addition to being based on a common methodology, all Intratec reports that approach industrial processes have a common structure, i.e., indexes, tables and charts share similar standards. This ensures that Intratec’s readers know upfront what they will get and, more than that, will be able to compare technologies addressed in different reports.

Our methodology is continuously tested and proven by the many corporations involved with the commodities sector, R&D centers, EPC companies, financial institutions and government agencies that rely on our reports.
