Extrusion Processing Guide: PA 6 – Polyamide 6

 Processing Guide: PA 6 – Polyamide 6
 Extruder: Single Screw Extruder
Without vacuum, plain feeding section or pressure-relieved grooved feeding section (by increased screw pitch and channel depth)
 Screw Design: Barrier Screw or Polyolefin Screw with equal feed ,transition and metering section, 25-30 L/D
 Compression Ratio: 3-4:1
 Cylinder Temperatures: 230-260°C
 Melt Temperature: 230-290°C
 Pre-Drying: 3 hours at 80°C (176°F) (very important)
 Miscellaneous: process above 220°C (428°F) to avoid freeze-off
if bubbles come then temperature too high
increased output/reduced wear by preheating of material 75°C (167°F) or by heating of feeding section at 150°C (302°F)
Note: This is meant as a general guide. Please consult your material and machinery representative.
