Toray Nylon Particulate include the spherical Nylon 12 fine particles developed by Toray and porous Nylon 6 particles reflecting Toray's expertise as a polymer manufacturer.
Toray Nylon 12 fine particulates are spherical nylon fine powders developed by Toray. They provide not only the specific properties of Polyamide 12 such as heat resistance and chemical resistance, but also have a uniform particle size, smooth surface and excellent dispersibility. Due to their smooth sliding property, unique flexibility and other excellent characteristics, Toray Nylon Particulate has proven track record in the field of cosmetics, especially base materials for color cosmetics, spanning many years. They are finding new applications in recent years such as additives used for reforming of industrial products.
The Nylon 6 fine particulates are microparticulated versions of Toray's proprietary Polyamide 6 polymer. In addition to the high melting point (225°C) and other properties of Polyamide 6, these particles possess such properties as uniform particle size, high oil absorption and excellent mechanical strength. Offering these properties, they are being adopted in an increasingly wider spectrum of industrial applications besides cosmetics.
