Carpet fiber made from Aegis® Nylon 6 resin is durable, resilient and colorfast. This offers the carpet manufacturer a great range of colors and design options. Carpets made with Nylon 6 also resist abrasion, wear, crushing and matting, granting long lasting performance to the end product. In fiber production, Nylon 6 performs consistently and is very stable. Nylon is the most durable and versatile fiber for carpet.

Engineering Plastics

Aegis® Nylon 6 resins from AdvanSix exhibit excellent molding and extrusion characteristics, making them the resin of choice in a variety of plastics applications – from automotive parts to electronics and shoes. Compounders often enhance and modify these base resins, tailoring them to meet specific application needs. Nylon 6 engineering plastic resins exhibit good strength, stiffness and toughness as well as excellent heat, chemical and abrasion resistance.

Food Packaging

Food packaging must protect the food, appeal to the consumer and handle the rough and tumble of transport and handling. AdvanSix produces a number of nylon resins used for flexible and rigid packaging. Aegis® Nylon 6 resins, for example, are tear- and puncture-resistant with excellent flexural strength, making them ideal for meats, cheeses and other packages having sharp edges. Aegis barrier resins offer excellent oxygen and CO₂ barrier properties to extend product shelf life and preserve flavor, color and aroma. And Capran® biaxially-oriented nylon films provide the flex-crack strength, puncture-resistance and clarity that are great for flexible pouches and retort packaging.

Building and Construction

Innovations in building and construction are largely due to huge strides forward in materials of construction. Aegis® Nylon 6 resins from AdvanSix stand up to the rigors of tough environments, making them an excellent choice for wire and cable jacket materials used to protect everything from building wires to automotive cables.

Capran® films, on the other hand, provide excellent moisture permeation transport properties and oxygen barrier protection – giving them great air-tight characteristics.
