Shinil Chemical SHINNANO PA-6 Polymer Nanocomposite Air Intake Module
Categories: Polymer; Thermoplastic; Nylon (Polyamide PA); Nylon 6 (PA6)

Material Notes: SHINNANO is the product line of polymer nanocomposite made by dispersing nano fillers, mainly, NANOCLAY. Shinil has developed various nanocomposite grades for automotive applications using proprietary dispersion technology combined with the customized nanoclay. Nanocomposite products of SHINNANO provide not only high performance but also the lighter weight (10-20%).

SHINNANO uses various engineering polymers to produce functional nanocomposite grades. Nanoclays are incorporated during the melt compounding. The clay particles are exfoliated during processing, which leads to nano-size platelets. Although this process is challenging, owing to unique dispersion technique that is developed for nano materials, Shinil produces high performance nanocomposites with less use of nano fillers. SHINNANO grades are available for automotive parts such as bumper, instrument panel, door trim, engine cover, cylinder head cover, and air intake manifold.
