In this study, we investigate the effects of process parameters during interfacial polymerization of aliphatic polyamides (Nylon 6,6) on the pore sizes of polyacrylonitrile (PAN) ENF membranes.
Polyamides (nylon) are very resistant to wear and abrasion, exhibit good mechanical properties even at elevated temperatures, have low permeability to gases and demonstrate good chemical resistance.
The significantly higher stiffness of the highly filled material in reference to its weight, compared to standard polyamides with only 30 or 40 percent glass fiber reinforcement, ensures that the component is strong enough to withstand the high stresses, according to the company.
