SHANGHAI (ICIS)--Honeywell has developed a new nylon 6 (or polyamide 6) resin for fishing lines and nets, the US-based company said on Tuesday.
Honeywell's resins and chemicals business developed the new resin at its technology centre in Shanghai, China, working closely with local manufacturers that convert nylon or copolymer resin into filaments and fibres used to produce fishing lines and nets.
The company said it is surveying its customers on the product and plans to enter full production of the resin in the third quarter of this year.
