CFP Nylon Cleanroom Film is an ideal answer for packaging challenges involving toughness, cleanliness and maximum resistance to abrasion. Nylon 6 used for cleanroom packaging is an unplasticized, FDA-approved food grade clear film.

CFP Nylon 6 is a hydrophilic (water-sensitive) material; moisture acts as the plasticizer (the higher the moisture content of the film, the more flexible and rubbery it behaves). Nylon is also very low in ionic contamination.

CFP Nylon 6 offers the lowest levels of particulate count of any clean packaging film; as such, nylon is used in applications with a high sensitivity to contamination. With its abrasion resistance, Nylon 6 is ideal for packing sharp or hard items that otherwise would cause a softer material to contaminate the product.

Standard items manufactured from Premium Nylon are clean to NASA JPR 5322.1G (Level 50A). Compare Premium Nylon clean packaging from AeroPackaging, Inc. to Precision Clean Nylon™ from Fisher Container or Ultra-Clean A-124 Nylon™ from Richmond Technology.

Premium Nylon 6 Bags are available in flat sizes from 2″x2″ to 40″x60″. Premium Nylon 6 Tubing is available in widths from 2″ to 74″ with standard lengths of 500 and 1000 feet. Premium Nylon 6 Square Bottom Machine Covers are available engineered to your requirements.

Premium Nylon 6 Sheets are available from 1″ x 1.5″ to 40″ x 60″. Premium Nylon 6 Centerfold Sheeting is available from 2″ to 74″ in standard 500′ and 1000′ lengths.
