The effect of reprocessing Polyamide 6 (PA6) has been studied in this paper. To simulate recycled PA, we reprocessed virgin PA through 5 cycles. The PA has been rheologically characterized after the various cycles of reprocessing in order to evaluate their corresponding properties and correlate them with the number of cycles undergone. In order to widen our injection simulation analysis by computer (CAE: Computer Aided Engineering) of these new materials, it was necessary to determine the
