NyloPrime, panel made with recycled carpet.

NylonPrime is a molded composite panel from recycled carpet. Natural(wool) and synthetic(nylon 6 and nylon 6.6) fibres from post consumer carpet is bonded using a synthetic resin (non-urea formaldehyde) with heat and pressure to create rigid paneling for construction.

The panels have good compressive and impact strength, and water, mold and rot resistant, may be machined easily using conventional woodworking tools and exhibit excellent dimensional stability.

The panels may be laminated with wood veneers, GRP (glass reinforced plastic) sheets or panted.

Applications: Wallboard, as an alternative to MDF for cabinetry and office furniture and as an alternative to pressure treated lumber
