Processing Guidelines

Material Handling

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.

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.
