Honeywell Resins and Chemicals announced it has expanded its line of Aegis nylon 6 resins to include a new formulation specifically tailored for fishing line and net applications.

This new formulation, Honeywell Aegis H95XC Gen II Resin, is designed to maximize transparency, flexibility, strength and elongation, which are key attributes needed in fishing line and nets. The resin also has critical performance additives already imbedded, allowing manufacturers to avoid the time and cost normally associated with blending the materials themselves to achieve the best results.

Honeywell developed the new resin at its technology center in Shanghai, China, working closely with local manufacturers that convert nylon or copolymer resin into filaments and fibers used to produce fishing lines and nets.

"This resin was developed based on the input of customers to achieve the combination of attributes they require and the ease of use in manufacturing they need," said Sherwin Ling, Asia Business Director for Honeywell Resins and Chemicals. "It is another example of our continuing efforts to customize resins to meet specific needs of our customers."

Fishing lines and nets require certain attributes from nylon, including: transparency so the net cannot be seen underwater; flexibility or softness so the net and line are easy to handle, spread, fold and store; strength so the line or net does not break under heavy loads; and elongation to prevent knot slippage. Honeywell researchers used new proprietary quantitative testing methods for transparency and softness in formulating the resin to measure and prove its performance.

The company is currently sampling customers and plans to enter full production of the resin in the third quarter of this year.

Honeywell Resins and Chemicals is one of the world's largest producers of nylon resin and caprolactam, a critical feedstock used for nylon production. Its resins are used in diverse applications such as fibers and filaments for carpeting, fabrics, nets and cords; engineered plastics components for automotive, consumer, and industrial applications; and films for food and protective packaging.
