nylon production

Nylon manufacturing process

Adipinsäuzre, hexamethylenediamine, and water are combined in a reaction vessel to commonly known as "nylon salt solution" form of hexamethylenediamine adipate. After evaporation, the water is still removed from the salt solution. A slurry mixture consisting of TiO 2 pigments and water, which is used to deluster fibers, is then added to the nylon salt. Then, the polymerization starts in the reactor where polyhexamethylene adipamide (nylon 6.6) is produced. The nylon polymer is then extruded through a spinneret or pelletized.

impurities in

● raw materials

adipic acid
ultrapure water

TiO2 -Pigmentschlamm
● nylon salt solution

Problems caused by contamination

Impurities cause

● fiber break; Interruptions in the fiber spinning
● blockage of the polymer melt filter
● blockage of the screen packs
● High replacement costs
● production losses
● processing problems at the customer
● Poor quality - not proper Nylon 6/6 pellets
