A Workhorse Reinforced Nylon for Demanding Applications
DuPont™ Minlon® provides excellent chemical resistance and retention of properties at high temperatures, while enhancing stiffness, strength, and warp resistance.
DuPont™ Minlon® reinforced nylon exhibits better dimensional stability and creep resistance than unreinforced nylon, and lower warpage than glass-reinforced nylon.
As a result, DuPont™ Minlon® reinforced nylon resin is a “workhorse” polymer commonly used in big industrial parts and demanding automobile applications. It can be processed readily in conventional thermoplastic molding equipment, providing versatility and potential efficiency. Minlon® has been widely tested and proven for a wide range of applications, making it easier to collaborate with DuPont experts to meet the specific performance, cost and production needs of new applications.
