Polyamide (PA) or Nylons were the first of the thermoplastic engineering materials.  Nylon 6/6 and nylon 6 are the most widely used types. Nylon 6 properties are similar to nylon 6/6, but it absorbs moisture more rapidly and has a lower melting point.

Key Features;

  • 210° F Continuous Use Temperature
  • High Strength, stiffness and toughness
  • Good wear and abrasion Resistance
  • Outstanding chemical resistance
  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Easily Machined and Fabricated

Typical Applications;

  • Bushings and bearings
  • Pistons and valves
  • Rollers and wheels
  • Electrical components
  • Food processing equipment components
  • Sheaves and pulleys
  • Gears, sprockets, and star wheels
  • Pump components
  • Wear pads and Wear strips
