Nylon Rod, Nylon Sheet & Nylon Tubes


These Polyamides, commonly referred to as nylon and available in Nylon Sheets, Nylon Rod and Nylon Tube and are distinguished by different types. The most common engineering nylons are PA6 and PA66. Nylon stock shapes are produced by either extrusion or casting. The process is in part a determinant of the nylon properties of the end product. Modifiers are added to enhance desirable characteristics.

Nylon Advantages:

Nylon Rod, Nylon Sheet and Nylon Tubes are tough, durable, general purpose engineering material with special grades for specialty applications. Typical application conditions would be medium speed and temperature in a rugged, abrasive, impact and high load environment.

Nylon Products:

  • Ertalon 6SA : High mechanical and damping properties
  • Ertalon 66SA : Higher mechanical properties and better dimensional stability
  • Ertalon 6PLA : Monomer cast, similar properties to 66SA
  • Ertalon 6XAU+: Higher mechanical, wear and creep properties than 6PLA
  • Ertalon LFX : Self lubricating, increased wear resistance and reduced co-efficient of friction
  • Ertalon 4.6 : Polyamide 4.6
  • Ertalon 66GF30 : Polyamide 66 glass filled
  • Nylatron GS : High mechanical properties with MoS2 filler
  • Nylatron GSM : Monomer cast with MoS2 filler
  • Nylatron MC901 : High mechanical wear and creep resistance
  • Nylatron 703XL : Internally lubricated cast nylon for special applications
  • Nylon Sprockets : Reduced chain wear, lightweight with no lubricant required
  • Nylon Gears : Reduced wear on mating gear, lightweight, reduced noise with no lubricant required
  • Nylatron NSM : Specially formulated for demanding applications
