Nylon 6/12

Nylon 6/12 is a powder of pure copolyamide 6/12 produced by polymerizing 6-caprolactam and 12-laurolactam by an original catalytic system directly in the solvent. This process provides Nylon 6/12 with excellent characteristic properties.

Nylon 6/12 exhibits a higher surface, lower crystallinity, and lower humidity sorption than Nylon-6 (polyamide-6). As a result, Nylon 6/12 can adsorb active cosmetic ingredients and additives in enormous quantities and desorb them in a regular, smooth, and controlled way. These properties predetermine Nylon 6/12 for exclusive cosmetic products, particularly for decorative and skincare applications keeping comfort optimal wettability.
