DSM Akulon® K225-KS (Dry) Flame Retardant (Halogen free), Heat Stabilized Nylon 6 (North America)
Categories: Polymer; Thermoplastic; Nylon (Polyamide PA); Nylon 6 (PA6); Nylon 6, Unreinforced, Flame Retardant

Material Notes: Description: The Akulon portfolio is engineered for optimum performance to suit different processing techniques and end use markets.

Unfilled Extrusion Resins
Akulon resins are available with melt viscosities to suit all extrusion processes: barrier and coating film, tube and hose, monofilament, stock shapes. Akulon resins are characterized by:

  • consistent quality
  • high purity
  • for film applications, low gel contents.

Molding Resins
Suited to all engineering demands:

  • Unfilled low and medium viscosity grades
  • Toughened unfilled grades
  • Glass reinforced from 20-45% filled
  • Low warpage reinforced grades
  • Flame retardant; UL V0 rated and glow wire types
  • Halogen free FR grades
  • Blow moldable materials
  • Laser markable resins
  • Laser weldable, high burst pressure grades
  • Toughened, reinforced resins
  • High stiffness grades for metal replacement

Akulon Ultraflow resins have high flow with mechanical properties similar to standard materials. Exceptional flow allows:

  • productivity gains in molding
  • lower built in stresses
  • better surface appearance
  • system cost reductions

Applications for Molding resins There is an Akulon resin available suitable for any application requiring polyamides. Key areas where DSM has specific application knowledge are

  • Automotive
    • Under the hood and engine components
    • Exterior and interior applications
    • Electrical components and connectors
  • Electrical
    • Low voltage power distribution
    • Lighting
    • Power connectors
  • Consumer Durables
    • Power and lawn and garden tools
    • Small Appliances
    • Sports and leisure equipment
    • Furniture accessories
    • Industrial Goods
    • Transportation (railways)
