The crystallinity of semicrystalline greatly affects their physical and mechanical properties [32], The mechanical properties of the reported different nylons are listed in Table 2.
Most of the original nylon sculptures from that show have been damaged or are now lost; we're fortunate that Nengudi decided to re-create those seminal works (nine in all) for her recent exhibition.
> Fundamental properties of Nylon 6 with comparison to other Nylons (46, 66, 6/66, 11, 612 ...)
Nylons 6, 66, and 11 can be radiation crosslinked, but the first two require addition of a crosslinking agent.
Nylons 3 11 (N3 11), 5 11 (N5 11), 7 11 (N7 11), 9 11 (N9 11), and 11 11 (N11 11) were synthesized by melt polycondensation of undecanedioic acid with various diamines.
All nylons swell in automotive fuel, the result being dimensional changes.
Both nonwelded and butt-welded unreinforced nylons have a [[sigma].sub.e]/[[sigma].sub.u] ratio superior to that of aluminum at R = 0.1.
The ADN issue appeared to have landed prominently on nearly everyone's radar from hurricane season 2017 through 2018, starting with unplanned disruptions in production of ADN and nylon 66, all of which have been largely resolved by now, according to Brendan Dooley, global director for engineering resins at Houston-based IHSMarkit.
Compared to nylon 66, nylon 612 has lower modulus, higher elongation, lower strength, and a lower melting point.
