Atacs 0551 is a green-tinted, transparent, heat-stabilized, co-extruded film produced from a modified nylon 6 resin. Atacs 0551 is a high temperature nylon film which can be used for cures to 400°F(205°C). It is available as lay-flat tubing and as lay-flat sheet. Standard thicknesses are .002 and .003 inches. Any non-standard width is available up to 160 inches.
Atacs 0551 is recommended as a bagging film for advanced composite fabrication and other high-temperature/pressure applications where softness, workability, pinhole-free and defect-free films are essential. The co-extrusion process represents the most advanced “state-of -the -art” in blown film production. This is achieved because of the multiple flow of film fusing together at the extrusion die exit.
0551 is excellent for use in ovens and/or autoclaves. This material has excellent drape and bagging conformity properties, including heat stabilization. ATACS 0551 is recommended for both composite and metal fabrication.
