FT-Raman Determination of Melamine and Melamine Cyanurate in Nylon

Volume 48, Number 4 (April 1994) Page 535-537

Tseng, Ching-Hui; Mann, Charles K.; Vickers, Thomas J.

Melamine and melamine cyanurate are often added to nylon to improve both the flame resistance and the mechanical properties of the resin. This is accomplished by extruding a mixture of nylon, melamine, and cyanuric acid. Cyanuric acid is converted to melamine cyanurate by reaction with melamine during the extrusion process. In the product the total additives are typically about 10% by weight.
