Bio based materials became a trend in the market where they find their share through being eco-friendly. However with some exceptions, use of bio based materials are in single use applications like packaging industry, due to their non-durable nature. One of the exception of bio based material is (PA6-10).
Nylon 6/10 has lower moisture absorption than nylon 6 or nylon 6/12. It is stronger than nylon 11, nylon 12, and nylon 6/12. Nylon 6/10 retains its room temperature toughness at low temperatures better than nylon 6 or nylon 6/6. Nylon 6/10 has good resistance to most solvents and to dilute mineral acids. It also resists the environmental stress cracking action of salts such as zinc chloride.
