Identification & Functionality

Aegis® PIR H135QP Features & Benefits

Benefits of Using PIR-Grade Products from AdvanSix
  • No compromise in performance or processability
  • Greater recycled resin content less virgin resin) in end products
  • Smaller anticipated environmental footprint
  • No costly requalification needed for existing customers
  • No added food contact concerns
  • Cost-effective path to sustainability

Applications & Uses

The Best of Both Worlds: Trusted Performance and Sustainability

New PIR-grade products from AdvanSix offer manufacturers an opportunity to get the best of both worlds: trusted performance AND a reduced environmental footprint.

Because these products offer the same excellent physical and mechanical properties as their traditional counterparts, customers can also expect:

  • A seamless path to producing more sustainable downstream products.
  • No costly requalification process.
  • No issues related to collection contamination or food contact.
  • No issues typically associated with post-consumer recycled nylon.

 

Now manufacturers have the means of retaining packaging performance with raw materials that can help improve their reputation for sustainability. See Table 1 for application examples.

Table 1: Opportunities for PIR-Grade Nylon 6 Products

Opportunities Application Examples
Products requiring compliance with FDA regulations
  • Food and medical packaging
Products having rigorous performance requirements
  • Thermoformed/shrink meat packaging
  • Medical device packaging
Packaging that is traditionally difficult to recycle
  • Bag-in-box beverage packaging
Applications that cannot tolerate contamination of color/odor
  • Light-colored carpets
  • Food packaging
Any end-product that customers want to align to their corporate sustainability goals.

Applications requiring:

  • Reduced virgin raw materials
  • Increased recycle content
  • Reduced environmental footprint
Application

Aegis® PIR H135QP is a lubricated, medium viscosity, nylon 6 extrusion grade homopolymer for cast or blown film

Note

Aegis® PIR H135QP conforms to FDA requirements of 21 CFR 177.1500 as well as EU Directive 2011/10/EC. Aegis® PIR H135QP homopolymer possesses the combination of strength, toughness and thermoforming properties associated with nylon 6 as well as excellent heat, chemical and abrasion resistance.

Regulatory & Compliance

Technical Details & Test Data

Extrusion Guidelines

Melt Viscosity vs. Temperature

Melt Temperature: 220°C (428°F)
Melt Temperature Range: 232°C (450°F) to 271°C (520°F).
Two key factors affect the melt viscosity (stiffness or fluidity of the melt) :
1. The molecular weight (Mw) of the resin: Higher Mw resins will have a higher melt viscosity than lower Mw resins.
2. Temperature of the melt for any given Mw resin: Higher process temperatures will provide a more fluid melt viscosity
than lower process temperatures.

Storage & Handling

Processing Guidelines

Material Handling

Aegis® PIR H135QP is supplied in sealed containers and drying prior to processing is not required. However, higher moisture is the primary cause of processing issues. If drying becomes necessary, a dehumidifying or desiccant dryer operating at 80°C (176°F) is recommended. Drying time is dependent on moisture level. More information about safe handling procedures can be obtained by requesting the Safety Data Sheet.
