Polamide 6 (PA6); 1 kg of primary PA6 “at gate” (production site output) representing a European industry production average, in pellet form.; Europe-27; PA6 can be extruded, granulated and moulded in a wide range of textile, packaging and engineering applications. The main uses include fibers, films and engineering plastics. Applications range from automotive and electrical to food packaging. It should be noted that PA6 (polycaprolactam or Nylon 6) and PA6.6 (Nylon 6.6) are used for similar purposes. PA6 can be recycled mechanically or for feedstock; chemical recycling back to the monomer is commercially exploited.LCI resultEU-27Materials production / Plastics20102016

Polyamide 6.6 (PA6.6); 1 kg of primary PA6.6 “at gate” (production site output) representing a European industry production average, in pellet form; Europe-27; PA6.6 can be processed via extrusion, injection moulding and blow moulding. The main uses in-clude fibers and engineering plastics; PA6.6 is generally not used in film applications as it cannot be bi-axially orientated. Applications range from auto-motive to electrical/electronic and textile uses. It should be noted that PA6 (polycaprolactam or Nylon 6) and PA6.6 are used for similar purposes. PA6.6 can be recycled mechanically or for feedstock.LCI resultEU-27Materials production / Plastics20112018
