Nylon

Nylon is an original thermoplastic engineering material and is often used to replace metal bearings and bushings, many times eliminating the need for external lubrication. Compared to metal, Nylon sheets are lightweight, have less operating noise, and better wear resistance on mating parts.

Nylon sheets also have outstanding mechanical properties that include good abrasion resistance, low friction, corrosion-resistant and great temperature, chemical, and impact properties.

Cast Nylon vs Extruded Nylon

  • Cast Nylon offers lower moisture absorption resulting in higher dimensional stability, coupled with the crystalline structure, you get a good balance of strength and toughness. 
  • Extruded Nylon is a model replacement for metal, with versatility, toughness, wear-resistance, and excellent temperature and impact properties. Unlike cast nylon, the absorption of moisture adversely affects its dimensional stability. 

Features:

  • Excellent bearing and wear properties
  • Lightweight (approximately ⅛ of bronze)
  • Abrasion resistance
  • Low friction coefficient
  • Strong and stiff at elevated temperatures
  • Good chemical resistance to alkalies and oxidizing agents
  • Easy to machine and fabricate
  • Reduced noise, weight, and wear of mating parts
  • Good impact strength at low temperature.
