Applications & Uses
Aegis® PIR MBM is a terminated, non-delustered, bright medium dye, medium viscosity nylon 6 resin for carpet fiber and synthetic turf
Aegis® PIR MBM 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.
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.
