A versatile plastic used extensively for applications in mechanical construction and maintenance.
Nylon 6 rod is a common engineering plastic due to its ease of machinability. It combines high strength, stiffness and hardness with good creep and wear resistance. It also has good heat ageing properties, is electrically insulating and is resistant to many oils, chemicals, fuels and cleaning fluids
A partially crystalline polyamide with good strength, toughness and resilience. This is particularly important under impact loading or at low temperatures.
By using additives such as oil, solid lubricants or thermal stabilisers, the typical characteristics of type 6 nylon can be selectively adjusted for certain applications, opening up a custom tailored range of materials to cover a wide application spectrum. Cast nylon demonstrates even higher crystallinity and better machinability than extruded nylon.
