Types of Nylon

Nylon Sheet

Nylon, the first successful thermoplastic and engineering resin, boasts a number of characteristics that have led to its great popularity in both commercial and industrial applications.

Nylon Rod
Metal Detectable Nylon

This polyamide 6 grade, containing a metal detectable additive, has been specifically tailored for use in the food processing and packaging industries where it can easily be traced by the conventional metal detection systems installed to detect contamination of the foodstuffs.

Nylon Machining & Fabrication

Acetal is a rigid, strong material that is available in copolymer and homopolymer compounds. Its properties include low moisture absorption, good chemical resistance and good dimensional stability

Nylon Machining & Fabrication
Nylon HS Blue

Nylon HS Blue is heat stabilized cast nylon 6, which is easily distinguished by its distinctive blue color. It is manufactured with additives in the form of high temperature resistant colorants, U.V. stabilizers, and heat stabilizers which allow HS Blue to retain its properties in applications operating at elevated temperatures. This reduces stress distortion that can be caused by machining.

Nylon Cast Type 6 Glass Filled

The addition of glass fibers to nylon in various amounts (10%, 20%, 30% and 40%) increases tensile strength, stiffness, compressive strength, and a lower thermal expansion coefficient over conventional unfilled grades.

Nylon Cast Type 6 Glass Filled
Nylon Cast Type 6 MoS2 Filled

Molybdenum disulphide-filled (MOS2 filled) and oil-filled nylons have enhanced wear properties and filled variants which increase structural and impact strength and rigidity or lubricity.

Nylon Cast Type 6 MoS2 Filled
Nylon Cast Type 6 Oil Filled

This is a cast nylon with built-in oil lubrication. During the manufacturing process, oil lubrication is completely and evenly dispersed throughout the cast nylon, making it an integral part of the material’s structure that cannot spin out, dry out, or drain out, even under the harshest working conditions.

Nylon Cast Type 6 Oil Filled
Nylon Extruded Type 6/12

The addition of glass fibers to nylon in various amounts (10%, 20%, 30% and 40%) increases tensile strength, stiffness, compressive strength, and a lower thermal expansion coefficient over conventional unfilled grades.

Nylon Extruded Type 6/12
Nylon Threaded Rod

This threaded rod is lightweight, inert, non-toxic, tasteless, weather resistant, non-aging, non-sparking, mechanically stable, non-flammable and will not support combustion. Maximum temperature is 200 degrees F. Excellent for use in chemical industry, oil refineries, food processing, and marine applications.

Nylon 6/6 – Commercial Grade

One of the most common industrial plastics used today is Nylon. When it was first introduced to the toothbrush in the last 1930’s, it swiftly caught the attention of engineers and was transformed into into other things.
