Polyamide 6 is a polymer that was developed to reproduce the properties of Nylon 6.6 without violating the patent in its production. Although Polyamide 6 and Polyamide 6.6 indeed hold similar characteristics, the main difference between the two polyamides lays in their molecular structure. Polyamide 6 has an open molecular structure with low internal bonding, whereas Polyamide 6.6’s has a tightly bonded structure. Polyamide 6 is known as being highly resistant to UV-sun light, having a high level of tenacity and being resistant to abrasion and high temperatures (though not as resistant as polyester yarns).
TP’s Polyamide 6 yarns can be delivered in the colours white and black.
