7APPROVALS UL (Polymeric Materials used in W&C) CSA Approval (NM) UL File QMTT2.E237217
9GENERAL PROPERTIES Standard extrusion viscosity 2.7 Extractable levels range 3 – 6Additives for product stabilization and long term heat ageingSpecial production dedicated only for W&C Needs
10NYLENE BX3WQ662 Classic Grade normal production Ease of processabilty for circuit size & large diameter cablesProduction speeds normally under 4000fpmLower extractable levels
11NYLENE BX3WQ662X High Speed Grade Used in circuit sizes where high speed production is used (up to 8000fpm)Higher extractable levels.
12BX3WQ662X HRV Higher viscosity version Used in both high and low speed Used where increased pressure needed in extrusion equipment
13NX4795 General Purpose Grade Medium Viscosity Specialty Lub Package for improved wire pull capability
14REQUIREMENTS TO PROCESS Normally tandem extrusion but can use Co-extrusion as wellWire coating approx .005 in.Need standard nylon screw
15TANDEM WIRE COATINGThe PVC and nylon extruders are separated- each with it’s own crosshead.A vacuum can utilized to adjust the jacket tightness and remove outgasses.Both PVC and nylon diameters can be monitored and controlled
16CO-EXTRUSION COATINGThe PVC and nylon extruders use one common crosshead.A vacuum can utilized to adjust the jacket tightness and remove outgasses.Only finished diameter can be monitored and controlledA glass smooth finish can be attained.
17REVIEW Nylene provides 3 separate nylon grades from wire coating Products are all UL approved for the applicationsProprietary products made since 1983 for the industry in NA and SATechnical support from Arnprior for all products
