Abstract : Studies of various 610 nylon resins show that the toughness of wire jackets fabricated from these materials can be improved considerably by increasing the temperature of the surface upon which the nylon is extruded and the temperature of the quench water. At the same time, we do not believe that this factor, alone, is any panacea that will guarantee perfect quality wire; certainly many other process factors play an equally important part in producing a tough nylon jacket. Based on our findings, we would encourage the manufacturers of nylon jacketed wire to experiment with the heated wire and/or hot water quench to see if it results in a tougher nylon jacket for their particular construction.
