A ICMPv6 header consists of:

Create a ICMPv6 header

# standalone
icmpv6 = PacketGen::Header::ICMPv6.new
# in a packet
pkt = PacketGen.gen('IPv6').add('ICMPv6')
# access to ICMPv6 header
pkt.icmpv6     # => PacketGen::Header::ICMPv6

ICMPv6 attributes

icmpv6.code = 0
icmpv6.type = 200
icmpv6.checksum = 0x248a
icmpv6.body.read 'this is a body'
