Description

Nylon 6T is made by polymerizing hexamethylene diamine with terephthalic acid. Nylon 6T is similar in most properties to nylon 6 and 6,6, but it has a higher melting point and greater density. Nylon 6T also has good heat resistance and resistance to stretch. It is most often used as a precursor for producing aramid fibers.

See Nylon fiber.
