Identification & Functionality

Capran® PIR-1200RT Features & Benefits


Capran® PIR 1200RT is a 0.47 mil (12 micron) biaxially oriented nylon 6 film. It features a superior balance of properties, including high gas barrier, excellent toughness and puncture resistance, optical clarity, and exceptional flex crack resistance. Capran® PIR 1200RT is particularly recommended for retort applications and is well-suited for packaging applications requiring optimum protection and performance

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
