Aegis® H35ZI resin is a 2.4 RV, unfilled, low viscosity, non-lubricated nylon 6 homopolymer. It offers compounders and injection molders excellent melt flow properties for filling thin sections and reduced cycle times, and combines strength, stiffness and toughness with excellent heat, chemical and abrasion resistance.

Aegis® H35ZI Features & Benefits
Applications & Uses
Aegis® H35ZI homopolymer is supplied in sealed containers and drying prior to processing is not required. However, high moisture is the primary cause of processing problems. If drying becomes necessary, a dehumidifying or desiccant dryer operating at 80°C (176°F) is recommended. Drying time is dependent on moisture level.

Technical Details & Test Data
Melt Temperature: 240-280°C (464-536°F)
Mold Temperature: 80-95°C (176-203°F)
Injection and Packing Pressure: 35-125 bar (500-1500 psi)
A mold temperature of 80-95°C (176-203°F) is recommended, but temperatures as low as 10°C (50°F) can be used where applicable.
Injection pressure controls the filling of the part and should not be applied for 90% of ram travel. Packing pressure affects the final part and can be used effectively in controlling sink marks and shrinkage. It should be applied and maintained until the gate area is completely frozen off.
Fast fill rates are recommended to ensure uniform melt delivery to the cavity and to prevent premature freezing.
