Vydyne® 21SPM

Vydyne 21SPM is a general-purpose PA66 resin. Available in natural, it is designed principally for injection-molding fabrication. This grade offers a well-balanced combination of engineering properties characterized by high strength; rigidity; good toughness; high melt point; good surface lubricity; abrasion resistance and resistance to many chemicals, machine and motor oils, solvents and gasoline.

Vydyne 21SPM resin permits production of molded parts with good initial color plus good property and color retention when using regrind. This resin is recognized by Underwriters Laboratories and conforms to the requirements of many industrial, federal and military specifications for premium-quality, general-purpose PA66 resins.

Vydyne 21SPM resin is internally and externally lubricated for improved machine feed and exceptional mold release. It is intended for use in high-productivity applications. In many applications, the molding cycle can be reduced because parts may be removed from the cavity at higher temperatures. In difficult molds where parts have a tendency to stick in the cavity,  Vydyne 21SPM can reduce or eliminate the need for mold release sprays. Critical molded part dimensions should be checked against specifications before implementing shorter molding cycles on a routine production basis.

Application End Uses

Vydyne® 21SPM  is used in bearings, cams, connectors, electrical/electronic applications, fasteners, housings and industrial applications.
