Nylon

Nylon - TURCONT - Cnc Machining Services and Casting Foundry Services - Manufacturing

As a synthetic material, nylon was invented by the DuPont company in 1935. Since it is suitable for injection molding and its wear resistance is high compared to other plastics, it can be used instead of low strength metals in manufacturing.

The nylon is a highly machinable plastic material and its specific strength (strength-to-weight ratio) is quite high.

Besides, it has a superior thermal resistance and wear resistance to chemicals and abrasion, and it does not provide a suitable environment for fungus, mildew, and mold development.

 

Features & Applications

Features

  • A plastic material with high chemical resistance, thermal resistance, and toughness
  • Absorbs the moisture in its environment
  • Has a good chemical resistance, however strong acids, alcohol, and alkalis may degrade its structure
  • Has a high thermal resistance and can be reliably used at high temperatures. Heat stabilization systems ensure continuity of operation at temperatures up to 185°C
  • Dries quickly
  • Flexible structure

Applications

  • Bearings
  • Food packaging films
  • Bushings
  • as reinforcement for car tires
  • Wear plates
  • Low Voltage Switch Gears
  • Engine components
  • Screws and hinges
  • Gears
  • Nuts and bolts
  • Door Handles & Radiator Grills (automotive)
