Automotive industry is one of the largest markets for Nylon resin and compounds. Due to its excellent properties like tensile strength, chemical resistance, heat resistance, abrasion resistance etc., Nylon 6 is finding growing importance in the automotive sector in under the hood, chassis, exterior and interior applications. As the automotive industry is facing stringent environmental norms, Nylon 6 provides advantage of better fuel efficiency by way of weight reduction and lower fuel emissions.
Nylon 6 reinforced compounds are being used for many metal replacement applications in the car engine components like intake manifolds, gears, bearings etc.
In unfilled Nylon 6, GRP's reprocessed GRPLON055G & GRPLON060M are used for fasteners, bushes, cable ties, fuse box, screw caps, plugs, clips etc.
In glass filled reprocessed Nylon 6, GRP’s GRPLON15GF & GRPLON30GF are used for Oil tank caps, switches, Oil filter parts, locks, fuse holders, connectors, radiator parts, mirror brackets etc.
