As the first commercially successful synthetic thermoplastic polymer, Nylon continues to enjoy a stellar reputation in the plastics industry since its first use in the 1930s.
A highly versatile material, common usages of Nylon parts and components include bearing and bushing, pulleys, gears and rollers, wear plates, guide wheels, production jigs as well as applications in the automotive and oil and gas industries.
Apart from its distinctive blue colour, key characteristics of Nylon parts and components include excellent machinability, high toughness, good wear resistance and suitability for use as a sacrificer.
Commonly referred to using the chemical designation “PA” (e.g. PA6G or PA 6/66), Nylon material is most commonly available in blue, white, black and its natural color (beige or off white). Nylon 6/6 is one of the most common variants for Nylon parts and components used for engineering purposes.
