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 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
- Excellent bearing properties
- High impact strength and toughness
- Low power factor requirements
- High wear resistance
- Very good sliding properties
- High load bearings
- Wear pads
- Support and Guide wheels
- Conveyor and Tension rollers
- Wire rope sheaves
- Buffer pads
- Gears, etc.
