What is Nylon?

Density – 1.15

Polyamide (PA), also known as Nylon, is a clear and printable thermoplastic that has a relatively high melting point, exceptional strength and toughness, and good oxygen barrier properties.

It is also scratch, puncture, and flex-crack resistant and does not dissolve or absorb grease, oil, and acidic food.

These properties make PA ideal for use in conventional and microwave cooking applications.

The two most common types are cast and biaxial oriented Nylon film. Biaxial oriented polyamide or BOPA film can be used for a wide variety of applications especially where high gas barrier properties are required. Because of its higher price relative to PVC, PE, and PP film, it is generally considered a specialty film.
