About 96% of Adiponitrile is as a building block for hexamethylene diamine (HMDA) , which is then used to make nylon 66 (PA66).
Adiponitrile/Nylon is primarily consumed by the construction industry (carpet fibers) and the auto and electronic industries (engineered plastics.
Up Stream Materials/Building Blocks:

Automotive: Gears, fitting, bearings, tubing, washers, carpets, ulpostry
Durable goods housings
Electronics: Hardware, data storage, ESD bags/films
Apparel (coveralls, aprons, coats, hoods)
