Nylon Rod/Sheet is an excellent wear and
abrasion resistant material with high
mechanical strength and exhibits good
sliding properties. The material is resistant to
many oils and chemicals.
Nylon rods and sheets are available in different
grades including heat stabilised and graphite
impregnated to improve friction resistance.
Nylon exhibits excellent machinability thus
providing high edge definition and surface
smoothness. Nylon sheets, plates, tubes or rods
within the polyamides group, are commonly
referred to as 'nylon'.
The most notable are: Nylon PA 6, PA 66, PA 11
and PA 12. Nylon 6 is the most commonly used
grade due to its good all round performance
properties. Ertalon and Nylatron are the brand
names for Nylon 6 and Nylon 66 grades.
Other benefits include:
Excellent wear and abrasion resistance
Good slip properties
High mechanical strength
Good creep stability
High mechanical strength and toughness
Good fatigue resistance
High mechanical damping ability
Excellent wear resistance
Good electrical resistance
High resistance against high energy radiation(gamma and X-rays)
