Custom Polyamides: Many of our customers come to us with very specific needs directed toward increased productivity or improved product physical characteristics. Our strength is being able to design resins with reduced moisture absorption, greater impact strength, increased flexibility, improved transparency or other distinguishing features in order to meet those requirements

Extrusion Polymer Series: Shakespeare extrusion polymer series consist of nylon homopolymers and copolymers specifically formulated for tubing, monofilament and sheet extrusions. These polymers exhibit the tightest molecular weight and color control for the demands of high output extrusion where color and part tolerances are critical. These polymers are used in industrial filtration monofilament, belting and brush bristles as well as tubing and sheet manufacturing.

Transparent Polymer Series: Shakespeare transparent polymer series features amorphous, clear PA610 based copolymer nylons. These nylons exhibit high solvent resistance in comparison to traditional transparent polymers, as well as superior dimensional stability versus polycarbonate, PMMA and Polystyrene after exposure to various organic solvents. They are used in a range of applications including injection molding, sheet, film and clear monofilaments.

Terpolymer Series: Shakespeare terpolymer series features amorphous, low melting point terpolymer nylons. Because of the compatibility of these nylons, they are superior carriers for color concentrates, UV packages, as well as a variety of additives. They offer many advantages over traditional carrier resin, Nylon 6, such as higher loading, better dispersion and increased color stability. In addition, our terpolymer products are readily soluble at room temperature in common alcohols or alcohol & water mixtures, and are specifically designed to be used in solution coating applications.

Terpolymer Series: Low Moisture Regain/Dimensional Stability Series: Shakespeare 610 and 612 nylons are used in applications that require low moisture regain and superior dimensional stability. These nylons also provide excellent abrasion and electrical insulation properties, high tenacity and outstanding chemical resistance.
