Polyamide 6.6

It is the most produced fiber of polyamide fibers.
It is a thermoplastic polymer which is the crystal structure.
The adipic acid and hexamethylenediamine which are the starting materials of Polyamide 6.6, heated in ethyl acetate consist of Nylon 6.6 salt.
Solution of the salt in the water start to polymerization when holding under pressure and giving steam at 215-220º C.
When the desired degree of polymerization temperature, polymerization is terminated by adding acetic acid.
The polymer which is the milky white color and solid state is formed into filament by cutting in small pieces.

It is used for;
Under wear
Bed cover
Drapery fabrics
Industrial areas.

The upper surface of fiber is straight.
The fibers can be semi-gloss, mate or glossy.

Good elongation
Low thermal conductivity
Very high strength
Low electrical conductivity
Resistant to sunlight
Highly resistant to bases
Resistant to chemicals
Resistant to bacteria, fungi and moths
Resistance to pilling
