About Nylon 66. Nylon 66 (a.k.a. Polyamide 66) is one of the principal commercial nylons along with Nylon 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.

Polyamides can be manufactured from different monomers and in different ways, depending on the intended end-uses. In this context, the two most common methods to produce polyamides are the polycondensation reaction from ω-amino acids, which leads to polyamides with amide linkages with the same orientation along the polymer backbone (type AB), and the polycondensation reaction of diacids and diamines, forming polyamides where the amide linkages alternate in orientation along the backbone (type AABB).

Nylon 6,6, specifically, is obtained from hexamethylenediamine and adipic acid via polycondensation and was the first commercially available allsynthetic fiber. It has valuable properties - abrasion resistance, wear resistance, hardness, resistance to chemicals and fuels - which make it suitable to a variety of applications.

Nylon 66 Handling. It must be store in a dry, cool and ventilated area. Also, it is necessary to protect from source of flame, heat and ignition.

Nylon 66 Production. Nylon 66 production consists in the copolymerization of HMDA and adipic acid, in such a way that different manufacturing routes are related to different sources of such raw materials. In this context, Nylon 66 production routes are based on HMDA manufacturing pathways (from butadiene, acrylonitrile or adipic acid) and adipic acid sources (from either renewable or petrochemical sources). Raw materials and the respective production processes employed in the manufacturing of Nylon 66 are listed below.

  • Hexamethylenediammonium adipate (amide formation)

Nylon 66 Uses. The uses and applications of Nylon 66 may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Nylon 66 are pellets; fiber; and resins.
