Nylatech® IRG retains the basic physical properties of nylon 6 but has increased impact resistance. Since traditional cast nylon 6 materials are semi-crystalline, they are susceptible to cracking and breaking when subjected to high impact loads especially when the part is nicked or notched. Nylatech IRG addresses this issue. Due to the impact resistance of Nylatech IRG, it outperforms these traditional grades in heavy impact applications such as pile driving cushions. The material can also be used in vibration dampening applications, mechanical stops or other high impact situations.
Nylon IRG Blue (Nylatech IRG)- Impact-Resistant Grade contains glass-filler for enhanced stability.
