Material: NYLON 6 HEAT STABILIZED:



NYLON TYPE 6 HEAT STABILIZED
CHEMLON 212 H
Chem Polymer Corporation / Nylon 6 Heat Stabilized
Nylon Type 6 heat stabilized has the same mechanical properties as general purpose nylon 6/6
with the additional advantage of heat stabilization. This material can withstand 250 �F (121 �C)
temperatures in long range service in most applications. Heat stabilized nylon is off white in color.
