Nylon Corp. of America has debuted transparent nylon resins under the Nycotrans trade name.
Nycoa says the new materials, based on nylon 6 chemistry, are designed for applications such as those exposed to solvents and oils, where traditional clear resins like polycarbonate and polystyrene cannot be used.
Nycotrans nylons can be molded and extruded, have high barrier properties and chemical resistance, and are available in ultraviolet-stabilized grades. They also provide high-impact strength. The Manchester, N.H., firm's suggested applications include filter housings, sun and safety glasses, and medical products.
