So, what is nylon-66?

Nylon-66 is a versatile and durable synthetic polymer used in various food-related applications. It's made by combining hexamethylenediamine and adipic acid through a condensation reaction, resulting in a strong and heat-resistant material that can withstand high temperatures and pressures. In the food industry, nylon-66 is commonly used for packaging and processing equipment due to its high tensile strength, flexibility, and resistance to abrasions and chemicals. Additionally, nylon-66 is approved by regulatory bodies for use in food contact materials, making it a popular choice for manufacturers looking for a reliable and safe solution for their products.
