Nylon - Cast Nylon Grades Overview
OVERVIEW
Cast Nylon shapes are available in a wide range of sizes & grades. Their flexibility and performance characterics have led to Nylons replacing bronze, brass, steel, and aluminum in various mechanical applications. So what makes nylon suitable for so many applications? A quick look at the material's basic properties compared to other common materials shows why. Nylon has excellent tensile and compressive strength, good wear properties and is an excellent electrical insulator. It can also be modified to improve just about any individual property; plasticizers improve impact strength, lubricants reduce coefficient of friction, anti-oxidizers improve operating temperature range, glass fibers improve rigidity, other additives allow the use of colored nylons in direct food contact applications.
  • Available in Natural, Blue, MD-Filled, Oil-Filled, Glass-Filled and other formulations.
  • FEATURES AND BENEFITS
