Request for Real Time Polycaprolactam Prices:

Polycaprolactam is a polymer, which is also referred to as Nylon 6. The structural formula of polycaprolactam is (C6H11NO) n and its density is 1.084 g/mL. The melting point of polycaprolactam is 218.3 °C (493 K) and its autoignition temperature is 434 °C; 813 °F; 707 K. It has somewhat the same characteristics as nylon 6,6.

It is a semicrystalline polyamide. It is extensively used in engineering plastics and packaging, due to its distinct characteristics such as high tensile strength, incredible resistance to abrasion, increased flexibility, and high lustre.

It is produced through the polymerisation process, in which it undergoes a hydrolysis mechanism and the caprolactam is used as a monomer.

The United States, Germany, Italy, China, and the Netherlands are the leading exporters in the market of polycaprolactam.

Since polycaprolactam’s ester bonds hydrolyse under physiological circumstances, it has garnered a lot of interest for use as an implantable biomaterial.

It is an essential part of root canal fillings and dental splints. It has the same handling qualities as gutta-percha and performs similarly.

It is also used in carpets, tyre cords, clothing, lingerie, and furniture, as well as seat belts, parachutes, ropes, and industrial cables. In addition, it is used in extrusion, injection, blow moulding, engineering materials, and moulded components.

Polycaprolactam is used to create biodegradable 3D-printed scaffolds and supports numerous applications in the healthcare sector thanks to its good elastic qualities.

News and Events:

  • July 20, 2022: Sustainability pioneer Genomatica (Geno) and longtime partner Aquafil recently completed the first demonstration-scale manufacturing runs for plant-based nylon-6. By enabling producers to meet customer demand for eco-friendly everyday products like apparel, car parts, and carpets, the material seeks to change the USD 22 billion nylon market. As part of pre-commercial quantities from demonstration production occurring in Europe, Geno and Aquafil have produced the first several tonnes of plant-based caprolactam, the building block of nylon-6, converted it to nylon-6 polymer, and are currently converting it for testing in nylon applications, such as yarns for textile and carpet and engineering plastics.
