PAX ETG61 Nylon-Olefin Alloy

PAX ETG61 is a Mercury Plastics developed nylon-olefin alloy thermoplastic. This material was specifically designed as a lower cost alternative to lubricated nylons typically used in fuel, vacuum and hydraulic line applications, including nylon 11 and nylon 12.

Compared to nylon, PAX ETG61 offers:

  • Increased tensile strength
  • Improved tear strength
  • Better heat resistance
  • Superior heat aging properties
  • Lower coefficient of linear thermal expansion

PAX ETG61 has been shown to have equivalent permeability to nylon 11 and nylon 12 when tested according to ASTM DD471 Ref. Fuel A and has passed the SAE J-844 zinc chloride test.
